Via Herald-Dispatch.com, after his 14-year-old stepson stole a $20 pair of headphone from a department store, Harris decided that the community should know just how big of a screw up his stepson really is. So Harris got a poster-board and a sharpie, made the boy write down exactly why he decided to steal even though he had the money in his pocket to purchase the headphones, and forced him to stand outside of Harris' barbershop all day, sign in hand. Harris' shop sits by a busy intersection.
That will teach the youngster not to steal again. And if he does, Harris just might tar and feather the kid and drag him through town.
