Urban males fail to rob store, news at 11

In New Jersey, a security camera captured four college football players accidentally finding their way into a closed convenience store, taking some items, and leaving cash on the counter.  Somehow, this is making headlines all the way out in Minnesota.

Hey, it's nice seeing good deeds rewarded and all.  But the only reason I can figure that anyone finds this headline-worthy is because it's a shock for some to discover "They're honest, law-abiding people, just like us!"

"They" in this case refers to young, male college athletes, and certainly not any other category of young males which news watchers might expect to engage in criminal behavior.
