Roxy is only six years old and absolutely adorable, she knows right from wrong and is not the least bit bashful about speaking up when she sees wrongdoing. That is exactly what she did when thieves made off with thousands of dollars worth of custom road bikes belonging to her dad after breaking into the family garage.
Her father says he was touched when they arrived home and found the garage open and the first thing Roxy did was to offer him her life savings to help replace them, but he never expected her to do what she did next.
Roxy got a poster board and her marking pens and created a sign to put on the front yard shaming the thieves. The sign is littered with sad faces, a broken heart and an extremely vicious looking angry face telling the thieves, “Shame on you bike thieves.” She pulled out all of the stops too, playing the “Your Mom would be so disappointed” card “even if she was a villian [sic] she wouldn’t want you to be a villian too.”
In a Skype interview with a reporter from KOMO Roxy said:
“Shame on you, because it hurt my feelings that my Dad was so angry and sad. I want to tell all the people who steal things it’s a bad idea to steal things…Why do they even make villains in the world? If we didn’t have villains the world would be nice and easy.”
Bicycle thieves in Portland, Washington be advised, if you ply your trade in Roxy’s neighborhood you may have to answer to one tough talking little girl with a couple of missing teeth, and she doesn’t have any sympathy for the likes of you.
