Someone stole my bike when I was a kid. It sucked. I'm not sure if I would have wanted ‘I am a thief and loser' tattooed on the person's forehead, though. Tempting, sure, but the punishment may not fit the crime.
Here's my thought ... we want this person to get a job and hopefully buy a bike instead of stealing. But no one is going to hire someone with 'I am a thief and loser' tattooed on his forehead, thus negating the goal of getting this kid on the straight and narrow. Or maybe I'm wrong and he'll just grow out bangs and become a real pillar of the community.
The kid, who is only 17, claims he was drunk and wasn't trying to steal the bike. The two guys responsible for the tattoo have been arrested, and the community is raising money for tattoo removal.
