Did anyone ever think about getting help for people who do things like this as opposed to making flipant comments like 'great job guys' and 'way to go'? Instead of being reactive, why don't we become a proactive nation? I believe that where there is a fruit, there is a root and you cannot separate the two. I pray that he comes to realise the error of his ways and learns how to be the best at what he can be in a positive way. I do not condone any kind of criminal activity, but I do believe that in order to eradicate these problems you have to look at the cause and work from there. Prevention is always better than cure.
