If I didn't have enough money to impress a girl, I'd, I don't know, make her something. Write her a poem. Sing her something. 17 year-old Anthony Etienne took the easy route, and stole some poor kid's DS.

It's alleged the boy, from West Brighton in New York, figured stealing a DS from a little girl then selling it would get him the cash needed to score some brownie points with the ladies. He's instead now facing felony charges.

This statement, reportedly made to Police, sums up the entire ordeal:

I did not have no money to impress her, so if I thought that if I take this lil girl's DS, I can make some money. I tapped her shoulder. I said, ‘Give it.' She said, ‘No.' I said, ‘It mine,' (sic) and forst (sic) it from her. I felt bad as she chased me but it was done. I said to myself, ‘Never agen (sic).'
