William the Looter

Unlike hundreds of others, William was smart and wore his bandana as a mask when he looted the Walmart.
He picked up a new pair of Air Jordans, some cool sweats, and a laptop computer.
The sneaks and sweats, he wore to school.
The laptop, he got set up with his neighbor’s WiFi.
The next day, the cops searched that neighbor’s apartment for stolen goods.
“Shit,” said William.
They caught William sneaking down the fire escape with the laptop.
No, they couldn’t match William’s face to Walmart’s security tapes.
But the bandana that hung from William’s belt was a match.
