    Someone who stole from you?

    If someone who needed to buy bread for their children  stole money from you to feed them, would you forgive them and not press charges against them?

    If I was sure that it was to stop them from dying, I personally would not blame them nor press charges against them.

    I would inquire as to why they are in such a dreadful state however, in the UK the benefit system prevents any legal citizen of being in such a state.

    If it is for a valid reason that they are in that state, I would try to help these people in any way I can.

    I wouldn't press charges but I would be wary of them in the future.  Stealing is never  right, they could have come to me and asked for help or we have a ministerial association in our town and a food no stealing isn't acceptable.
