Colton Harris-Moore, the Whidbey Island teen who married car theft with MySpace photos “America’s Most Wanted Teenage Bandit.” Harris-Moore’s career in crime has escalated from breaking into local homes to stealing cars and running from police in less than a year. Harris-Moore’s also been accused of speedboat theft, as well as stealing (and crashing) airplanes. More recently, he broke into a police cruiser and took an assault rifle. He later left a note saying “Cops wanna play huh!? Well its no lil game…..It’s war! & tell them that.” He now has the national exposure necessary for the film career everyone’s been pushing for.
Only the arrogance of a teen and the wits of a wizkid combine for this outcome. Hopefully he will not kill anyone and will pile a stolen plane into a hillside. Refuse to ever cheer for a criminal. Oh, the mother, Pam Kohler, is an idiot.
