Former Shoemaker standout Brandon Joiner smiles as he prepares to get into his car after being released from the Hutchins State Jail on Tuesday morning in Dallas. Joiner was granted parole on Nov. 13, 2012, for robbery and drug charges in a 2007 incident while still a football player at Texas A&M.

I'm lost...............why is it we are glorifying the fact this man was convicted of robbery and drugs? I understand he was a good athlete but the herald is making him out to be a martyr day after day. Aren't you sending the wrong message to kids?
