Gotta admit this kid had some hart
Everyone’s favorite Fight Club-loving, Starbucks-bombing teen, Kyle Shaw, is considering a plea deal. The Daily News reports that the 18-year-old was given an option of “3-1/2 years in prison.” A prosector told the judge, “The offer is being made after careful consideration of the factors, including his age.” Plus, that bomb he set off outside the Upper East Side java joint was crude and his trying to start his own Project Mayhem is so cute! The Post says, besides “That’s a latte prison time,” that Shaw must decide by September 7 or a trial will set. Last we heard from Shaw, he was getting into fights at Rikers.
