So what you are saying, in order to survive in Wilmington you have to steal cable and other property and assault someone with a deadly weapon and other things that most criminals do?
Stealing is not a way of survival. Stealing is a way of thieves. Not "good" men.
The events that these people participated in are criminal. Not something good people do. Good people don't steal and lie and cheat the system or those that are around them. Good people obey the laws and respect other people and their property.
These two men are not "good" men.
To make a life for themselves by stealing doesn't really grant them the title of men either. I say they are worthless criminals.
