One, and someone will probably cut you a break. Six? Not so good.

It’s still cold out there, so if you’re caught stealing one warm coat, you’ll probably be treated leniently. Six at a time gets you in trouble, even if you’re trying to build a cozy bed under the bridge.

  1. Call me Hard Hearted Hannah, but I would HOPE taking six coats out of a store gets you in trouble. If he was truly cold and in need, Hamden has the fabulous Keefe Community Center, “responding to the needs of our citizens during emergencies and through tough economic times. Whether the need is for emergency fuel, employment, food or shelter, Community Services is there to provide assistance and offer support for Hamden families.”

    Next case.

    He was cold, yet he was “too proud” to go to the Keefe Community Center for a warm coat. Self-esteem being so important these days, he needed to steal six coats before he could feel warm again. Or so his public defense lawyer will argue.
