Susan Boyle - Boyle Pities Young Burglar

Scottish singing sensation SUSAN BOYLE has forgiven the teenage burglar who stole cash from her home.
The star returned to her house in West Lothian, Scotland in January (10) to find an intruder in the hallway. A 16-year-old youth later admitted a charge of theft for stealing $13.50 (£9) from the house, and was ordered to hand over $150 (£100) to Boyle's chosen charity.
But the singer admits she pities the teenage thief - because he must have been "desperate" to turn to crime.
Boyle tells Britain's Daily Record, "It was such a shame to find I'd been burgled but, apart from shaking me up a bit, nothing personal had been taken. It's a shame that people get that desperate in life. It makes you realise how fortunate you are."

SuBo, he didn't steal much simply because you got home so he ran off.Don't pity him. It appears he's getting off without paying the consequences, and will probably go on to bigger crimes next time.

I know Susan's heart goes out to the young thief and maybe it will be a lesson to him because he got caught. Hopefully he won't try this again, but he may have taken something of much more value if he had had the time. It would be like Susan to feel the way she does because she has a loving heart.
