OK - about the free stuff
I did research about people who have been scapled and survived. There is an excellent picture of such a person on the Internet and it looks like the fellow's head is wrinkled and sunburned, a lobster red sunburn with a distinct crown shape as though he'd put a solid barrier over his forehead to protect it from the sun but forgot he had nothing to protect the top - and it cooked, medium rare. Also found in my research, did you know that other countries in the wester hemisphere sent their Japanese citizens to the United States during World War II so that we would put them in internment camps? But not Mexico - they liked their Japanese citizens and after the war they did a significant amount of exports to Japan. See, it pays to be nice to people.
Now I need to find a psychological reason criminals seem to be so dumb.
