Just because people have been in jail doesn't mean they are bad people.
Yes, I screwed up when I was younger and got arrested for battery. I saw it as an opportunity to turn my life around and have. Everyone makes mistakes, and as long as you learn from them and correct them, they can be a good thing. Also, nearly everyone has done something that could've gotten them in jail, it's just a matter of getting caught.
#19, you're one of those inspirational ones. While I do pride myself on being one of those folk who didn't do stuff that could get the arrested (minor speeding and lying to a boss are the extent of my bad, and yes, they are still bad, I don't pretend they aren't), I don't judge others who didn't do the ultimate bad. Rape or murder or abusing children are unforgivable. Everything else, theft, vandalism, non-crippling battery, etc, I don't know your circumstances and maybe you came from a bad situation and made yourself a good one or maybe you were one of those kids who couldn't resist temptation the way I did and turned it around. My kudos to you. Hey, maybe I'm the boring one and you have stories to tell. Either way, high-five and keep it up.
