Walters, don't be so flipping naive. That guys a dirt bag. If he was stealing a bike to replace a stolen bike he wouldn't have sold it already. He's a leach on society and he deserves whatever he gets.
What about that blu-ray guy?
Jade, I like you a lot.
Well paying jobs JJ? Whereabouts are those? People are working hard to make this a better place but it's a deep deep hole to dig out of. I've lived in "mid sized" cities or suburbs of larger cities my entire adult life. This is not among the best of them by any means.
So much wrong with with this, I'll stick with one point: in your perfect world, "He has options outside of crime to pursue a living..." He did have those options. Here. In this imperfect world. And he didn't choose them. This over-reliance on the "perpetrators are victims too" trope takes away from the fact that thousands of people in this town suffer in poverty, thousands of people survived abuse, thousands of people barely get a fair shake in the job world, yet every day they get along without being criminals; without victimizing others; without taking the "easy" way. Gerlach did what he did. He's not a criminal. By jury, and in my mind, by right. Kaluza-Graham controlled this situation from beginning to end. His choices resulted in these consequences. And yes, we are better off without him.
Perfect place for a true farmer's market. Friday through Sunday, April to September. Now that the public market is gone, it'd be a nice addition.
