“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”―

Sometimes when you casually glance outside your suite window or patio door you catch a glimpse of humanity in the raw. Sometimes at its best. Other times not.
In the above set of photos I watched this youngster slowly move from vehicle to vehicle in his search for a power supply to sustain his electronic gadget’s power. He moved stealthily connecting the phone connector cord to a number of the outdoor outlets until he hit one that was generating electricity.
In the first photo he crouched low behind a vehicle and after making himself comfortable spent twenty minutes enjoying himself on the apparatus. His actions were animated and the smile on his face increased with each passing moment.
He apparently knew what he wanted to accomplish and did so. The only obstacle to his afternoon of fun and games was a sudden rain shower. He packed up his gear, raised the hood over his head and walked away.
You might say that the tenant is the one at fault for leaving the power supply to the block heater outlet turned on.
On the other side of the coin you might also argue that the waif’s parents failed in teaching this child right from wrong.
The photos tell the story. Interpret them as you like.
