Glorifying theft and making it seem noble or even heroic is an absolute embarrassment and extremely irresponsible writing.

These dudes were thieves that created a negative influence on those around them and helped contribute to and encourage the criminal element that still plagues minorities in impoverished neighborhoods to this day

Glossing over jail time for the sake of romanticism feeds misconceptions that lead many children to follow the footsteps of people who threw their own integrity/dignity away. This stuff is nothing to be proud of and not growing up with money is no excuse in any way. They created more bad than any justification of stealing could ever or will ever do
