Via Gawker, I read this story and watched this news report.
I then watched an interview with the young men. The whole thing is quite heartwarming.
But what disturbed me is how easily it could have ended up as a tragedy. Given the profiling by the police that is so rampant, all that it would have been needed was for someone to call the police when these four young men were still in the store or just as they were leaving it for them to have been misidentified as criminals. And then who knows what might have happened.
