As sick as it is, I gotta say crime in Japan really isn't all that bad. I read my home town paper and people are getting robbed, raped, beat and killed. I'll take stolen uniforms over a death in the family any day.

A school uniform is a little expensive. He must compensate them for victim's family's. At least they won't wear the stolen uniforms again :/

Some people and their 'hobbies' are a little much. Well, at least they caught him and now that he's in the system he might not go onto what he could have become if not caught. Yeah, maybe I watch too much TV...

Another example of the strong Japanese desire for uniformity.

This was no hobby this guy had a full time job which consisted of a part time job and part time thief!! Freak!

Maybe he meant to sell them rather than keep them for personal use.
