Black Guys Wearing Hoodies Enter A Store With No Clerk...
They grabbed several items and...
If you said "stole them" you would be wrong. These four young men proved their good character by paying for all the items, even though no clerk was present:
Four members of the William Paterson University football team in New Jersey each scored $50 gift cards after surveillance cameras captured them at a Wayne store paying for batteries and sunglasses, even though no employees were around.
Buddy's Small Lots was actually closed Sunday night. But the lock malfunctioned and the lights were on, making it appear as though it was open.
Buddy's management got a call from police that there had been a break-in, but upon arrival, nothing was missing from the store, News 12 New Jersey reported.
Cameras showed the men calling an audible, shouting out for a clerk. Two can be seen depositing cash on the counter, one waving bills in the direction of a camera.
I think a lot of people, white and black, would have taken advantage of the situation. But these guys proved you can't - and shouldn't - judge a person by the color of their skin or by the clothes they wear.
But the fact what they did is so newsworthy is a sad commentary on our society.
Kudos to all these guys. They deserve the best in life. Their parents should be proud of them.
