The Barefoot Bandit's secret origin


The New York Times has an article about the "early days" of Colton Harris-Moore, the 19-year-old accused of being the Barefoot Bandit. It's not much of a secret origin: He had a crappy childhood, according to people who knew him. His mom sounds ... interesting. The NYT says that she publicly advised him to flee to a country without an extradition policy.
