Makes sense to me. You kind of answered your own question—Buck has been in jail. There is a considerable (and arguably reasonable) amount of stigma against criminals in our society, and since Buck was so young, that makes it even worse—he's fourteen and he's done things that have gotten him incarcerated. People are going to be wary around him, especially people who don't know him very well, or who, like Polehaus, aren't the forgiving type. I'm not saying they're right to be judgmental or to spread rumors about him, but all of them shouldn't be realistically expected to handwave everything he did, especially since many of the people suspicious of him are kids who have no idea how to handle a reformed criminal who is their age.trueAIOfan wrote:And why do people keep going over that Buck's been in jail?
