Very hard.

I don't want a their working in my house, but if he can't prove he learned his lesson by getting ajob and working he'll be forced to go right back to stealing to put food on the table no?

This is how we breed career criminals.

On the other hand, I'd be more willing to work with a theif than a rapist. It's definitely a touchy subject.

Are they unchangeable, or can we help them change by changing our perception of them after they have served their time?
