Here’s a profile on Robin of Locksley, also known as “Robin of the Hood” (or just Robin Hood) — the guy was a wealthy son of a lord sent to Jerusalem to fight for King Richard and then was captured by the denizens there only to escape and sail his way back to the mainland of England countless years later. The welcome party, though, wasn’t what he had expected when he found out that his home, along with his father, had been eradicated with nothing left to show for it, leaving nothing for Robin to call a home. So what does he do?
He Survives. This Is Why Identity Theft Isn’t Robin Hood!
Sure, he became a thief among many infamous thieves in history and literature. The Prince of Thieves, actually, living in Sherwood Forest without a home. Without blood relatives. His entire history was annihilated from existence by the Sheriff of Nottingham. Robin became a ruthless outlaw stricken with vengeance over the death of his father, conversing with a bunch of “merry men” like Little John, Friar Tuck, and Will Scarlet, pretty much in the same boat he’s in! But he most definitely is not a criminal committing identity theft.
The reason why is due to the man’s insistence to rob the rich and feed the poor. His investment is on the poor. Not himself. A criminal committing identity theft only cares about himself/herself and nobody else. Period.
We’re Pretty Sure Robin Hood Would, in Fact, Approve of Identity Theft Protection
After all, the Sheriff of Nottingham practically stole King Richard’s identity by usurping his authority and trying to run England all on his own! Even if you were to look at other variations of this story about Robin Hood, we could point the finger even more squarely on the snide Prince John (not “Little” John, that guy’s cool) for trying to even wear the king’s crown.
In a nutshell, we can say Robin Hood is identity theft protection!
