    Not too long ago, Colton Harris-Moore hopped islands on twin prop airplanes, leaving boxes from stolen pizzas and thoughtful donations to veterinary hospitals in his wake. Then some jerks snitched on Harris-Moore and police finally caught him in the Bahamas. Now, Colton is a real-live American legend. Like Jesse James before him, Colton joins the lineage of compassionate outlaws who break stupid rules on principle. As the Times put it, “Mr. Harris-Moore seemed untraceable and unknowable, part high-tech Huck Finn, part cunning criminal.”

    Sure, he stole some food and ruined a few planes along the way, but it’s clear Colton meant no harm to anybody: When the police finally cornered him at the end of a speedboat race through the Bahamas, the cops shot at Colton, but he never fired back. The details of his escapades paint the portrait of an intelligent kid with a complex personality and a firm, if unconventional moral code.

    With Colton in custody and his adventure winding down, the media engines are revving up to dismantle and examine every angle on this 19 year-olds life. Interviews with his mom show that she may be a negligent boozer who drove her son away, inspiring in him fantasies of adventure and escape. Does it really matter, though? A person’s character amount from more than just their upbringing, however rotten. Please ignore whatever the armchair Freuds concoct to explain away his inspired, imaginative outlawry. Again, from NYT:

    ““He wasn’t really trying to get away,” said Kyle Ater, who found bare footprints drawn in chalk on the floor of his natural food store on nearby Orcas Island on the morning after the police say Mr. Harris-Moore burglarized it, destroyed the alarm system, and ate an entire blueberry cheesecake from the cooler.”

    Read the Times article. If you need a login for their site, try one of these so you can go untracked as well.
