I know what I do is illegal, but it’s justified by my desire to provide for my family. It’s not my fault that it illegal. I didn’t make the laws.
I’ve been breaking the law for years. Everyone does it. Why should I be arrested now? My family will suffer tremendously if I am incarcerated or otherwise forced to leave them. I’m just doing it to keep them housed, fed, and clothed.
Illegal Shoplifters have rights, too.
