"Flower Thief" Brings Out Unconstitutional Acts Among Adams Point Residents

I saw this at the APAC 14 X Yahoo Group:

> Hi All,
> I just posted a recent photo of the flower thief. See the group's ""Photos" folder, and inside
> that, a folder called, not too cleverly, "Suspect Photos."
> I'm still trying to determine for certain that he and "Smiley" are one and the same, though
> we've gotten some confirmation on that from a few different neighbors. It's also unclear
> whether he's still of interest to the police. Several of us have seen him around since he was
> supposedly picked up, so we're not sure if the police are done with him, etc.
> At the very least, he's stealing flowers from all over the area. At worst, he's dangerous. If
> anyone has any additional information, please post.
> Also, the Suspect Photos folder is public. Anyone ought to be able to add to that folder.
> Thanks,
> Mary

Which caused me to write this reply.


There' a saying "innocent until proven guilty" -- I don't like this approach at all. It's reminds me of the witch hunts in the Frankenstein movies. Where stupid, scared townspeople acted like, well, stupid, scared towns people.

Why didn't you get a photo of the person actually doing this -- if they were -- or just plain ask them in a humorous way. "You're not talking flowers, are you?"

Which brings me to this question.

Why the hell would anyone want to steal flowers?

What's annoying is the constant feeling that people in Adams Point are almost irrationally afraid of each other. It's weird.
