Some of the most reliable and upstanding people you know personally have felonies lingering from mistakes long past. You would never suspect it of them because they obviously do not fit the societal stigma of what a felon is. That's the danger in being programmed as a society to arbitrarily render preconceived judgement about someone due to their "status" or "legal classification". Many of us have kids, and many of us have stupid kids. Kids are stupid by nature. They make mistakes. But in this modern incarnation of what used to be a great country, those mistakes are counting against them for life. [/quote] Yep i agree, when a felon is done with his time why should it haunt he/she for life. Most of your rights stripped away even though your debt to society has been paid. Maybe if they would not alienate most criminals when they get out, they might would stay out! [/quote]
Guilt must weigh a ton. Who ever he is i am glad he has shrugged the drugs and some of the guilt.
An unidentified man recently returned to the Nashville store he robbed 11 years ago to deliver a hand-written note as well as $400 cash to replace the money he stole — with interest.
The owner of the InterAsian Market & Deli, Keosavanh Xayarath, remembers being robbed at gunpoint over a decade ago like it was yesterday.
The man and his son, Somboon Wu, were caught off guard when a mysterious man entered the store and insisted they accept an envelope marked “Owner.” The man reportedly told them that the delivery was very important because it contained money.
“He was really insistent that we take this, that we had to take this,” Somboon said, adding that they were hesitant at first.
When Keosavanh finally decided to open the envelope, he found a handwritten letter and four $100 bills. The apology letter’s author claimed to be the same man who robbed the store of $300 about 11 years ago. The letter read: “I do not use drugs anymore and I feal [sic] I must make amends to the people I have hurt in the past.”
