Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, December 24, 2017

A teenager who wore the shirt and tie that a Toronto cop bought for him after he allegedly attempted to steal them for a job interview has been hired. Const. Niran Jeyanesan thought he was responding to a routine shoplifting call on Aug. 6 at a Walmart in the city's north end. The 18-year-old who had allegedly attempted to make off with some clothes had picked out a long-sleeved shirt, a tie and a pair of socks. He told the officers they were meant for a job interview. ... "He was very remorseful, very ashamed," Jeyanesan said of the teen at the time. "I could see that this is truly a mistake and this person wanted a chance at life."
