And if he was just working the hero angle, even better on him.

So he was a less than respectable person in his younger days, if a person can redeem himself let him.

i'm not flame the guy, because like you said, that was a long time ago. who knows if he still has that dark side. but my admiration has certainly gone down. and not to poo poo the fun of this story, but he didn't do anything particularly selfless or brave, so i wouldn't really describe this week's events as redemption.

He is willing to give up the reward money to the victims, that's selfless, no?
