[*BCM*] Would you take this dude into your home?

Although I won't speak for Paul Centro, it seemed like his proposal was
pretty straightforward, nothing to do with taking him into his home. He
simply asked, how good should we feel when a possibly "repeat offender" is
taken off the street (for a period of time) without any avenues toward
rehabilitation. Even without supposing that it was for a drug habit, there
are little to no opportunities or training for job training. As Paul
mentioned, the person is going to face serious CORI problems with employers
(and this would be true even if he was acquitted), though that issue has
been gaining greater attention recently.
Maybe you can make an argument that certain criminals or types of crimes
ought to be removed from the street but even if that's the case, it seems
like a pyrrhic victory if recidivism receives no attention.

There are plenty of hard luck cases out there, but like asking about riding
scooter at a CM event, I'll ask this, would you take this dude into your
