“When we tie you to the theft of something and that shows deception being part of your character you forfeit the right to be believed you forfeit to be treated as an honest person.

Perhaps your first response was “screw this guy, people deserve second chances.” But maybe the biggest and perhaps hardest lesson of the pandemic has been to see the true colors of those you thought you knew. While investigators should always process things through the lens of evidence and facts, at what point do we let someone’s history dictate their future, and when should we let bygones be bygones?
