Package thieves in Hoboken

Package thieves in Hoboken {common sense?}

Package thieves in Hoboken are never going to go away. Well, at least until package delivery services like UPS, FedEx and DHL stop leaving boxes and packages without a human accepting them.

And there are no victims, really. Except maybe the Amazon’s of the world. But even then, they build “loss” into their business models.

About the worst thing that can happen is a minor inconvenience (unless of course, you ordered a liver you sorely needed?) It takes next to no effort to get a replacement from Amazon, for instance.

Below is a photo of one of the recent package thieves nicking something from a resident.

Do we just accept this? Or is there a better way?

Both the recipients of such packages – as well as the online monopolies – almost seem to have an “I don’t care” attitude. Most folks seem to just accept this as “life.”

People will get their stuff eventually, most often with zero worries.

And those giant companies view these losses as part of the business.

But the underlying theme that isn’t being addressed – is the fact that so many people out there want to take from others (what does not belong to them).

Sure, some prolific package thieves do eventually get “caught,” but they don’t become reformed despite whatever slap on the wrist they get. And there are always new package thieves brewing at all times.

The punishment system doesn’t work. Maybe it has something to do with economic disparity. I’m sure that plays a role in affecting whether these package thieves are willing to risk the “punishment” over the reward of getting some material good for free (and the monetary gain for fencing it).

So what would make the populous less likely to steal from others?

More churches?

Stiffer punishments?

Less TV violence or horrible music?

What happened to good people?
