A deposition from a lawsuit filed by a photographer alleging Kanye West assaulted him has turned up the fact West was convicted of felony theft in 2000 for stealing printers from Office Max. West doesn't really say if he did it or not, which probably means he did it, but blames the ordeal on racial profiling:

"I was racially profiled for having a white T-shirt and braids... a mistaken identity."

So there were two guys in town with braids and the cops picked the wrong one? Since this was a popular hairstyle at the time it seems weird they would single out West. Maybe they suspected you of the theft since you're a known problem individual. Plus they had all that evidence. West iterates that he was a Platinum Producer at the time, and hence would have no reason to steal printers. Coming from a clear sociopath there's not a lot of rhyme or reason for any of his behavior so we're back to ground zero. Did you steal these printers? If you answer by bragging about yourself again I'm going to assume Yes. That printer ink is a motherfucker. That's probably why it's behind the counter now.
