Remorse and Restitution

Unlike the sociopaths discussed in a prior post, most regular folks do feel guilt over the out-of-character offenses they commit.  In Valley Springs, California, 13-year-old Jack Hayre shoplifted a box of .22 cartridges from a store.  He felt bad about it, though, and later bought another box to return and make restitution.

Eighty-three years later.

Dana Nichols has this story in the Stockton Record.
