I tend to doubt they are actually one-percenters. Just because the guy claims to have a rich grandfather (a) does not mean he's telling the truth and (b) does not mean he himself is well-off. The specifics of his family's boorishness also argues against substantial personal wealth -- the petty theft/larceny is described to be about small ticket items, not relatively expensive purchases. Really wealthy people tend to be more about white collar crime anyway.

You do realize what it costs to fly a family from England to Kiwiville?

I don't truely believe the rich angle hence the question mark but on the other hand if you don't think that rich entitled folks just take small items from stores, you are sadly mistaken ;)

Talking probabilities, not absolutes. Trump is not bothering to pilfer the White House silverware, after all; he has better ways to rip off the American public.

If I had to guess these guys might be in the top 10-30%, upper middle class or low-end upper class. As per your question mark, probably not really 1%ers.

If you applied the same analysis to the title as you do is justifying your thought that they are not...you would have spotted it just fine :twisted:

Zed, believe it or not the rich are just as much assholes on the small scale as they are on the large scale.

You would not believe some of the videos or tourists at 5-star hotels here doing shit like that. Its simply a question of accountability.

When they are caught, they can pay/threaten their way out while small time crooks have to take whatever is dished out to them.
If you want a different perspective, stand on your head.
