They stole a BUDDHA statue? Oh dear.

Their ages (all 18-19) make me think "uh oh" for a lot of reasons.

They trespassed, STOLE people's property, damaged their yards and plants and you think that is NOT a crime? What..... do they have to run someone over with their car in the process to call it a crime in your world? What an incredibly stupid thing to say.

I think banditone is just being silly.

Or annoying.

I stole Theta's composite numerous times. This place got stuffy and touchy while I was away.

I'd say victimizing adjacent neighborhoods, which can have an effect on the reputation of the Greek community as a whole vs. tasteful burglary (stealing trinkets from a sorority house and ransoming them) are two different things.

This is just plain 'ol theft.

I'd say there's a pretty obvious difference between taking something like a composite from a fellow-Greek organization—something that's usually just a good-natured prank, often with an expectation of reciprocity and of returning the items, maybe after "ransom" is paid—and stealing plants and decorative items from random yards to convert them to your own use.
