Also, thanks to Oystah for her profile picture. It will haunt me. WTF is happening there?

To start - None of us really know anything about the situation here beyond the fragments we get from the news - and they are decidedly slanted towards the positive.

The fact is, having a family member spiral into a life of crime and addiction leads the family through a difficult path which includes reaching out, forgiving, etc... But eventually families have to attempt the tough love approach. This can mean you get direct with the person, call them an embarrassment and tell them you are ashamed of them. Not a pleasant process - but it can wake some people up, and make them realise they've reached rock-bottom.

So, I don't fault the mother here.

I don't think his mom is a "biotch"...if you've ever dealt with a person with drug/alcohol problems---tons of broken and empty promises-you get to point where you say-"let go and let God"--tough love baby....either you continue and be an enabler or you move on with YOUR life.....

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed what a biotch his mom is...she's cool with him doing burglary but OMFG he was holding a cardboard sign??!?! Lordy lord, the shame!

@Myjobsucks - I saw that this a.m. and thought the same thing - she'll put in the collection plate at the church for health and human services to benefit strangers, but can't reach out to her own son becuase he's an embarassment. Reeaal nice.

I agree that this is very heartwarming, but I will laugh when it comes back that this guy is a convicted felon for robbing liquor stores and sucking $%#@ for crack! Boy won’t the news look stupid then!

I think his mom seems like a cold biotch. On the morning show she said in the past she kept talking to him about "letting the lord into his life" but then she goes on talking about how ashamed she was to see him "holding a sign."

Pride is a nasty thing, lady. Remember the story of the prodigal son? Guess not.

She's a typical christian, using her religion as a pedestal for herself so she can look down on everyone - and never would she PRACTICE what she preaches.

I hope any success this guy gets does not lead him back to his addictions. The odds are against him stayinig clean. Some hit rock bottom and come back. Most do not.

Been in a situation where Tabloids offered to fly my mother out to see me after making the news. Then got offered a lot of money to have me meeting my family off the plane back home. Refused it all It's private moment to be reunited. I understand he's having his life turned round got a job with Cleveland cavaliers good for him. But this was unnecessary and shows type of person he still is someone who will sell anything for a cheap buck.

Ok, very nice, however that SHOULD have been a private moment. This relentless publicity may well pressure him into a relapse, not needed and not necessary.

I am Amazed...
How in HELL does every entry on IAB gets to atheist debates?
I mean, a lot of people here should know that I'm an atheist
too... But sometimes you just gotta let things go lol

Anyway, I'm happy for him, even though this rencounter was
a bit awkward IMO

@Zombieland

i know exactly what you mean, the whole thing stinks of a massive publicity stunt. and i know thats not a bad thing, but i think it subtracts from the genuine emotion

""People should take responsibility for their achievements instead of thanking "God"."

Cant you just be happy for people you d-bag?"
I can be happy for and irritated at people at the same time.
