Colton Harris-Moore: A teenage thief, a master escape artist, or a smart boy

This morning, I heard this news from NPR.  The story was fascinating because:

  • Police say the young outlaw is an amateur criminal — but a master escape artist.
  • He had stolen planes, learning how to flight on the internet?
  • His IQ was three points below Einstein.
  • His mom is writing a book about her son. She plans to use the profits to open an animal shelter for abused pets, something she says her son had dreamed of doing

The kid could have a very bright future if he gives up what he is doing, which is destructive to the society. Colton, turn yourself in, so no one will get hurt.

Anyway, I hope we can find out the motivations behind his acts, who is to blame for his present: himself, his parents, insurance company,  society… Please give your comments after watching this video:
