Why give a heart to a criminal?

"Melencia Hamilton says a hospital is refusing to place her dying teenage son on a heart transplant list because of “a history of non-compliance” that she believes is unfair."

He'll be shot in a few years anyway.

You can't expect a mom who lets a young teen cover himself in tattoos to be responsible enough to follow the rigorous after-care to a heart transplant.
Better to give the heart to someone who will treat it as the precious gift it is.

Maybe he could get the heart and recuperate in a stable environment. If it doesn't turn out well, I would rather have erred on the side of giving him a second chance.
He's not a boy. He's a 15 year old criminal who came to the hospital wearing an ankle bracelet. Wait for some punk to get capped in Chicago and throw one of those hearts in him.

Everybody is "superior" to you, and you know it. If it weren't for your masochistic troll tendencies you wouldn't keep coming back for more.
