Absolutely No Sense Of Right & Wrong

Just happy to be the center of attention

In Boynton Beach, FL two teenage girls admitted that they stole $167 from a girl scout who was selling cookies outside of a supermarket. After authorities caught up with them, the thieves returned to the scene of the crime, allegedly to taunt the victim. They have not (yet?) been charged with a crime and show absolutely no remorse. Indeed, they relish the attention they are getting.

They say they did it because the "needed the money." Both say they are upset only because they got caught:
"We went through all that effort to get it, we got all these charges and we had to give the money back. I'm kind of pissed," one of the girls told WPBF.

The other girl told WPBF that she was upset because police found them.

"I'm not sorry, I'm just pissed that I got caught," the girl said.

Money collected from the cookie sales were supposed to go toward Smith's sleep-over trip with Troop 664 to the Miami Seaquarium. Police were unable to recover the stolen money, but a father of one of the teens accused in the crime paid the money back to Smith's mother, WPBF reported.

Authorities said the teens were not charged because they did not use force to steal the money, nor did they take the money from the Girl Scout’s hands.

The State Attorney's Office will decide if the teens will be charged.

The Winn-Dixie supermarket is donating $200 to the troop, WPBF reported.
Here's the video:

I would like to see the entire interview, but I don't think the thieves were being sincere in their remarks. It seems to me that they were simply reveling in the attention they were getting, trying to garner even more attention for themselves by making provocative remarks. I sure hope their remarks get the attention of the sentencing judge.
