What is the attraction for stealing cell phones

And when they can get ObamaPhones for free, too!

You can't beat that old fashioned American work ethic, I guess.

My kids both in their 20’s are on those darn cell phones a lot and I am always telling them to make sure they pay attention because people are smashing you for your phones.

I have a cell phone for emergency’s only and it is an
old flip phone which I guess is old school but I could care less.

These guys probably steal a dozen or more cell phones a day from people.....likely, they don’t get much pushback as here.

I’m guessing they go for the high end smart phones which can be sold online for a nice price. My guess is that these type phones end up in other countries, e.g., the Mideast where they are hard to get or way too expensive new.
