A forgiving business owner Carl Wallace made the decision after a man broke into his Diablo’s Southwest Grill in Georgia, to not press charges against a burglar who broke into his restaurant.

Instead, he offered him a job!

Shortly after 4am on Easter Saturday – which also happened to be Mr Wallace’s 45th birthday the man broke in and video surveillance captured the act. Ironically he didn't even end up stealing anything, but did make quite a mess.

The owner posted photos of the break in on social media along with his phone number asking the burglar to contact him and "Swing by for a job application."

Other owners had videos of the burglar doing similar things to their businesses and they decided rather than punish him to help him find his career path because being a burglar certainly wasn't his calling. "Let's end this cycle and help each other."

Would you offer someone a job who broke into your business or one where you worked?
