Article should say, "Four days ago, in Palo Alto a man entered un unlocked door of a used goods store on a cold night, put on a pair of gloves he found inside the store and was subsequently arrested."

WWJD?

Meanwhile, I hear sirens going on all times of the day and night. No scanners, no news about what any of the alarms are about. Surely, there's more to report than an article about some homeless dude who could have taken anything he wanted, but instead ... took some freaking used gloves. He might have just been borrowing them with intentions of giving them back after the weather gets nicer.
