    He stole a boat and escaped the Bahamas. What a bad ass! This is a Hollywood movie in the making. Damn!

    But what he did in the 19 years he was alive was probably better than anything that any of us will ever do. He stole a plane, flying it with no prior flight experience. He crashed the plane and walked away with out injury, just to steal another plane and fly it to the Bahamas landing it successfully. This kid is a legend

    I agree. That is a pretty beastly thing to do. Props to that guy. Not to mention he did all that barefoot. How can he steal planes and not shoes?

    are u nuts??...what is he going to jail forever for??...burglary and plane jacking??...he wont get more than 10 years...if that...more likely 4 or 5...his crimes sound crazy because of the fashion in which they were committed...but he used cons to steal stuff...not violence!!

    Man, I feel bad that he got caught.

    A movie *might* be made about the "Barefoot Bandit"....

    "And 20th Century Fox has purchased the rights for a film based on his exploits."

    This is from the CNN link above.

    I dont get why so many people hate on him. He was neglected and abused as a child, and was forced to run away.... He stole what he did so that he could survive. I'm assuming the only reason he would steal a plane is to evade the people that were hunting him down. As the article on cnn says, he would sometimes only break into houses to take a bath or have some icecream. Real theives make a fortune off the houses they break into. At the least around $10,000 a house I would say. If he broke into 100 houses and stole $10,000 a house, dont you think he would be able to buy his own ice cream?
