4 NJ college football players rewarded for honesty

By Associated Press


WAYNE, N.J. (AP) — Four New Jersey college football players are being rewarded for their honesty.

The members of the William Paterson University football team each received $50 gift cards after surveillance cameras captured them paying for some batteries and sunglasses even though no employees were around.

Buddy's Small Lots in Wayne, N.J., was actually closed Sunday night. But the lock malfunctioned and the lights were on, making it appear as though it were open.

Cameras showed the men calling out for a clerk. Two can be seen depositing cash on the counter, one waving bills in the direction of a camera.

One of the players, Thomas James, tells News 12 New Jersey (http://bit.ly/14BS3of ) not everyone is a thief.

Yeah, and they knew they were being watched too. Non-story if you ask me.

Why are we rewarding people to be honest. That's expected of them and should be a person's default disposition.

As a Boomer growing up on O'ahu, back in the 1960s, we never had a need to lock our automobile. That's a great way for a child to experience life.

Now days nobody wants to be normal anymore. Seems like we are so busy muti-tasking that we have no time to care about someone else.

Gone are the days we stop to allow cars to merge out of a driveway, and allow people to cross a street. Now days when I stop my car for a child playing in the street, the car behind me honks their horn. What's that all about? The number of Samaritans are dwindling with every breath we take. I'm sad. Time to bring back the school prayer. Only God can knock some sense into us.

They obviously saw the camera so they knew that if they didn't pay they would be caught as their faces are probably more visible due to the fact that they play football.
