first of all, bank robber or not, you can't help but like Joe. I have never excepted the excuse of a person's " upbringing " for violent or criminal acts to me it was just that,an excuse. But listening to the violence and fear that these boys lived with, and the way Joe explains his thoughts and reaction to it, he has made me think twice !
