    I don’t understand why people burgle. Why would people take things from others and risk getting caught and going to jail? To me it’s not worth it. Can someone please explain why people burgle?

    There are many reasons why a person might burgle or steal. For some, they feel that it is the only way they can get the items they want. For example, maybe they want a flat screen TV, but they don’t have the money for it. The only way they can obtain it is if they break-in to someone’s house and take it. Others might steal to sell the objects and make money off of them. For some, stealing is even an addiction. They get a “high” from it and love the thrill and risk of potentially being caught.

    I agree though, for me personally, I would never want to risk going to jail. Not to mention that is morally wrong and I would feel terrible.
