No one can set you up to do illegal things. At some point you have to make the decision and commit to engaging in the activity.

What difference is this going to make?

These worthless bits of paper don't mean anything in the wider scheme of things.

this man turned his life after he ws released from jail by a m istake of the correctional facility. He wrote them via his attorney and gave them his address. Hos attorney told this man that if they needed hom correctional would be able to find him. Years later after he turns his life around, finds a good woman, get married and has 4 children now correctional found him and he is incarcerated. He dont had a parking ticket, he had no runnings with the law since he was by mistake released. He committed the mistake and had the fortume of using a "toy gun" when he went and robbed Burger King. I honestly beleive we dont gain anything by ruining the life of this man. He is an honest member of society and we should not be part of his destruction. A Governor's Pardon could apply if his personal circumstances are taken into consideration. He was a 23 years old guy with a toy gun....it was not a fire weapon even thou he might have done the crime because he could have been hungry. I dont excuse one part and I want fairness and consideration of his positive change in his life. I wish his attorney can get him out of prison because this looks like a cruel and unusual punishment. He was not  hidding, correctional was not capable of finding the mistake and picking him up when they had to pick him up. I beleive some responsibililty lies on correctional enforcement. Please do not destroy his life for a mistake he has amended with good behavior.

"They certainly made it worse than saying nothing at all."

The study has implications for how correction officers interact with and manage adolescent inmates. What might be seen as a sign of misbehavior or disrespect - forgetting instructions, angry outbursts - might actually be symptoms of past brain injuries, says one expert.
