Hahaha.

I agree completely.

"Pursue" is certainly different from "extend an offer."

I think "pursue" is most appropriate language.

My point is that while shoplifting is wrong, everybody that does it isn't a bad person. Sometimes they're just stupid kids.

And I'm not implying that the "stupid kid" excuse should get these kids out of being punished...I'm just saying that fans tend to overreact in a way that would make you think they had never done anything wrong.

What?! Too many bad decisions? he shoplifted an ipod case and broke up a fight!

This could just as easily be lazy police work or racial profiling.

I agree about glass houses. But bad decisions and stupidity doesn't have to involve crime. Dude needs to seriously grow up, and fast.
