Quora question: Why do people continue to rob shops in the US if the police will almost surely catch them?

My response:  Since when did logic, common sense or self-control enter into the equation for prospective felons? Some people act on impulse; others with regard to their current, impecunious situation; still others out of a desperate need to fulfill a drug habit.

To expect foresight among those poised to commit an unlawful act is like expecting a second date from someone who has left strict instructions to shoot you should you turn up on the premises.
