In this age of the internet, social media and CCTV, it is very common to post photos of people who have caught doing a bad deed to teach them a lesson. But when Rocco’s Pizza and Chicken owner Damian Penner learned about a mother and her children stealing pizza slices from his establishment, the pizzeria owner decided to take a different approach – reach out instead of shaming.

After the incident, Penner posted a note on Facebook addressed to the people who stole several slices of pizzas in his store. The letter was clearly meant to reach out rather than condemn.

“To the lady that stole 8 take and bake pizzas last night. We do not know the situation you are in, and don’t know if it was malicious, or to feed your children. But please, ask for help either way,” wrote Penner.

The pizzeria owner may be understanding but he did not fail to point out what the suspect had done wrong especially as a parent.

“You can’t continue to get your children to assist you in stealing, as they are young, impressionable, and still learning. You may feel like there is no other way, but regardless you have to parent, and can’t raise your children as an example like this,” continued the post.

Penner also explained why he was not posting the picture of the thieves and he ended the note with a call for the suspect to ask for help, even offering that the lady meets him personally so he can do something for her.

“We wont post your picture, or go to the police as this happened one time. Again, we don’t know the circumstances, and posting your photo would do nothing more than shame you in a community that is here to help you! If you need help, please come in and talk to me personally. We know of many resources out there, and work closely with many groups that can help lift you out of the circumstances you may be in!” Penner wrote.

To date, the suspect hasn’t contacted Penner yet but the compassionate note had been acknowledged by thousands of people on social media.

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
