you can argue that carley see's the best in everyone she did protect lee in ep1, a lot bigger than stealing,
but having a weak link is how these things go, the weak will always seek out the strong for protection and in doing so are unaware of the consequences of their actions..
ben being naive/stupid/retarded into believing 'bandits' any smart person would ask for proof life and evidence before risking others but no a scared kid is always selfish and stupid..
imo these types should be dealt with no hand holding or sympathy they should be punished true a bullet to the head is extreme and the end of the matter.
imo it's like all these k stew and rpatz should get back together groups, one side cheated with the stupid notion they wouldn't be caught, they allowed them selves to be 'convinced it was worth the risk' it's pathetic, retarded logic that kills..
so to sum up ben (who happens to be the spitting image of an old schoolmate who was pretty much a combo of kenny and larry) should be punished..i think some close calls with a few walkers will do the job nicely..
