Whoever said poverty is a crime, was not wrong, it certainly sounds a little extreme but what is the point of living if a single is broke and irritated? Everybody needs to have their basic needs – food, clothing and shelter – supplied, however, in countries where temperatures can be extremely warm or cold, temperature control readily becomes another basic need… So what happens when people are too poor to afford AC’s and gas furnaces? They suffer…or become super creative.
I recently heard about a guy who consistently seemed to take satisfaction in being behind bars, however everybody thought he was just shameless and incorrigible, and when he got paroled last Wintertime, the officer in charge of his case helped him find a part time task and he was doing quite well. He found himself a arena to live and ,finally, there seemed to be hope for this guy after all; Then he lost the task .Before even trying to find another, he decided to attack somebody, right in front of a policeman.
Shortly after his arrest, the real reason behind his latest felony was exposed: He lived in a certainly cold climatic region and having lost his task, he knew he would no longer be able to afford an condo with a respected gas furnace and reasonable heating. It was the middle of Wintertime, extremely cold, so he figured that returning to prison would be better than cold to death! Having been in and out of prison for so long, he knew that correctional facilities have reliable heating plans, reasonably serviced by Heating plus A/C professionals.
What a option to have to make!
