Everybody knows that everything in China is recorded on CCTV. Except these idiots.

Future pro athlete if the pro’s would go to affrimitve action in the NFL and NBA where the pro teams had to represent the ethnic makeup of America.
All this protest would go away and most of the players could put a cohesive sentence together on national TV.

Some of elite black college basket ball players got caught shoplifting.
Should have left them in China as a teaching experience.

I seem to remember a bunch of folks on CT having admitted to shoplifting or other idiocy in the teens (or even 20s). A sorority sister of mine in college took clothes from TJ Maxx...From a good family, who got her a good attorney, resulted in a slap on the wrist. Not condoning the act; hopefully they'll learn from their mistakes made so young, just as we all (hopefully) do.

CB not sure why their race is relevant here. White kids never shoplift or do anything knuckleheaded in their youth? That would be news to me.Heck, I know a young white boy who, as a teen, along with a friend got into a railway switchbox near their homes and pulled a lever that could have derailed a train. One (then)young man went on to serve a long career in the military; the other is an MD. (One of them is my brother).

It’s relevant when you look at crime stats on who is committing the majority of offenses.
The elite college basketball player was dripping in sarcasm as well.

I agree, I sincerely hope they realize how close they came to some awful consequences and stay on the straight and narrow from here on out.

No, he did the right thing. Too bad he wasn't around in time to save Otto Warmbier.

My family would of never got me out of jail much less hire an attorney for stealing. I've done a lot of bad things, but stealing isn't one of them. My pop told me stealing is the worst thing a person can do, and if I ever did he'd beat me till I was blind. I don't know what he meant, but I know he meant it. I have no use for a thief, and feel after three strikes, they deserve a bullet behind the ear.

No I wouldn't want to bore you, and no I didn't get away with them all either.
