A thief is someone that takes someone else’s property that isn’t theirs.

The actions of a thief can leave a victim distressed, feeling personally targeted, outraged and profoundly sad.

I had my bike stolen on Wednesday night. I really liked that bike – and although it wasn’t expensive (I paid just over 100 pounds for it), it has significant person meaning and value to me.

I would like an Emoji for thief because it will enable people to meaningful conversation about the causes of robbery and theft, and how they can be tackled.

It is a particularly useful noun because it can be placed behind other words such as cat, car and even the word “identity”.
