A thief is a thief. Caught or not caught.

It doesn't say that in the article. It says he became an American citizen before applying to the police academy.

I'm an immigrant too (not a US citizen, just live in the US) and honestly I don't think I'll ever put the US ahead of my home country.
This has troll written all over it. If you don´t care as much for the US why are you so concerned?

The US is my home now and I love this country (though not as much as my home country).
I hope the US does well because my current career is here.
I pay more taxes to the federal government and Massachusetts state than most Americans do.

I know you're foreign so I wanted to take a moment to clear this up for you. The reason why you pay more taxes to the "federal government and Massachusetts" than "most Americans" is because only residents of Massachusetts must pay tax there. Most Americans live outside of Massachusetts.

Hope this helps!

I assume because he told them when he was hired. The article doesn't say one way or the other.
