Excellent. Great to hear about the good encounter.
And yes, the kid was stealing a 3 dollar bag of charcoal, but hey, he shouldn't have been stealing at all. Maybe this is exactly what this kid needs to shape up and get his sh!t together. I say this, because I used to vandalize the hell out of my neighborhood as a kid, and once I got caught and got the living you know what scared out of me, I never did it again. I'm glad too; had any of that stuff transferred to my adult record, I would not have been a proud CPL holder today.
