MO: Letters: Readers discuss Luke Heimlich

[ – 7/2/19]

It seems as if every time the name Jason Kander appears in any newspaper, it is qualified with “rising star” or some similar phrase that provides Kander with more credibility than just using his name would.

Are reporters allowing publicity managers to direct their writing, or are all reporters just really taken with him?

The last Missouri candidate with an ego similar to Kander’s had to quit his office. Allow Kander to earn his respect. Don’t anoint him.

    Here’s the good part —

    Debt paid
    The Royals should ignore the haters and sign pitcher Luke Heimlich. In doing so, the Royals could show America that people convicted of any crime (even sexual offenses) and h who ave completed their sentences should have a chance at redemption. Numerous athletes, from Mike Tyson to Joe Mixon to Michael Vick, have been given second chances.

    Giving Heimlch a chance is not “pro-rape” or condoning abuse, but about allowing a man who committed a mistake in his youth an opportunity to become a productive member of society. Even if Heimlich is guilty, reoffense rates are less than 1 percent annually for sex crimes, and juvenile offenders have been shown to be more amenable to treatment.

    Guilty or not, he completed his probation. His record was sealed. He stayed humble while the media storm blew around him.

    Last year, he withdrew from his team before the College World Series. This year, Oregon State stood with him and let him play.

    Now, the Royals have a chance to do the right thing by repeating the second-chance offer. Doing so would show we still do believe in second chances.
