Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of man?

If James L. Harris really did what police say he did, then I would like to award him a Happy Mutant Criminal Award certificate. The 18-year-old is accused of stealing at least three Miami-Dade Transist buses, and driving them on their routes. Police say Harris wore a Miami-Dade Transit employee uniform, did not steal the fares, and returned the buses to the depot each night.

He's been charged with three counts each of third-degree grand theft and burglary of an occupied conveyance.

Why are they charging this guy?  It seems like they ought to hire him.  If only so that he can get the therapy he needs through Miami-Dade's no-doubt generous benefits package.
