10 Incredibly Nice Robbers

Personal morality varies from person to person, and even within a person over time. Some justify stealing other people's things in their minds one way or another, but still have a an ethical line they don't want to cross. Oddee collected stories of thieves who had a change of plan due to unforeseen circumstances, like the laptop thief who made off with data representing ten years of work for a professor in Sweden.
The professor had left his bag containing the laptop hidden behind a door in his apartment stairwell while he went into the building's laundry room. When he emerged a short time later, the bag had gone. It was returned shortly after, without the laptop. However, a week after the theft, the professor received a USB stick containing all the documents - which would have taken several hours to download again.

Ethics varies from person to person, but there are very intelligent truth-seekers who realize that underlying all this is a genuine morality. Ethics consists of a set of socially defined strategies. In one society; someone stealing from you is "justified" cause for stealing from them (an eye for an eye) whereas this is not true in all cultures. But it is true in all cultures that stealing is a violation of the right to own property.
