If you want to be excessive about it than yeah that is fine with me. But, being logical about the situation, I fell asleep with the tv on and it got stolen, with my doors being and windows shut, like you mentioned in the comment above, and it is my fault still. I don't think so because I tried to prevent the tv from being stolen and it is not my fault in the end. I will not use excessive behaviors to keep my stuff from being stolen but use common sense that people won't try to break in and steal a tv. But, I know better than that because there have been people breaking and entering, which is against the law and I will not be please that someone decided to break in and steal the tv. I also won't bolted it to the wall or to anything and I won't use anything that will kill another human being. I think you went to far with your illustration and went to the extreme of protection of a tv.

I wish you luck on your yard sale and I hope nobody steals anything from you, but that is high hope for human beings. I hope everything goes well for your yard sale and may you get a good profit from the sale itself.

I am actually supporting what I have said in the first comment that I posted. Because, we don't take responsibility for our things and take accountability for things that we own and get stolen, than it is our fault for assuming that people will do the right thing, which is false in the long run. We place blame on the another person because it is easy and convenient to do. I think we have a huge mess with crimes, because we trust other people too much and that is also not right. I am trying to set the record stay, when people should take accountability and responsibility for the things that we own and we borrow from other people.

I have nothing against the mother and I don't have the easel, which I didn't steal it, I don't even know the mother either. I am not condoning what the "dark hair" lady did either. But, it could of been prevented in the first place. We are assume that everyone does the right thing and leave things alone but people are self-interested and selfish as humans that we are. I am not saying that the mother or thief was right in the matter, the real victim was the six year old son, which some random lady brought the son a new easel and art supplies, which is good in the end. But, negligence on the mother's part, omission or commissioned, still is not right to publicly "shame or guilt" the lady for stealing the easel from her son that let his mother borrow. I am not placing any blame on anyone but there was negligence involved in the equation.

Tammy,

That is good that someone brought over a new easel and art supplies for your son. That person should be thank by the community or stay unknown but people who do that are great in my book, because that shows kindness and compassion for people, especially young children.

To all the comments that were left for me about being "negative," which was not said during the comments, I am not going to apologizing for what I said. There are possibly three different events that possibly let to the easel being stolen. First possible event that I think, is that the mother, which had the responsibility to keep the easel safe that the son let her borrow for the yard sale, if it happen after the sale, than the mother should of put in a safe place, so it won't get stolen. Second possible event, is that it happen during the sale itself, which than it is the thief that should take responsibility of giving it back. Third and lastly, if the mother forgot to put it away after the sale and the responsibility was lapse, which I will take because I lapse with things every so often, than I will apologize for the second and third event, but not for the first event. I don't know when it took place, so being, in my view of things, negative with my comment earlier on is not right but giving the other side of the story, expect the thief's story, than that is my opinion. I was also taught to pick up my things and if I didn't than they would be taken away by my parents and they will be giving back at a later time.
