The Surprisingly Large Cost of Telling Lies…
Telling the truth can be a tough option, however it can be the best option in the long run. Most young people look up to celebrities as role models. The question is are most of them worth our youth emulating?
Yes they are BRILLIANT at what they do, however sometimes their behaviour can leave a bad taste in our mouth. Example is the recent incident involving Ryan Lochte and three of his teammates in Brazil.
Few weeks ago we all felt sorry for Ryan Lochte and three of his teammates when we heard they had about being robbed at gunpoint in Rio de Janeiro by ‘these guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing, just a police badge’ everybody was shocked because the police are suppose to protect people NOT to rob them at gunpoint!

So convincing to think this was all lies makes it very difficult for anyone to have sympathy for anyone who can lie to the whole world in that manner. Ryan Lochte has been dropped by Speedo and also removed from Ralph Lauren’s website. The fact that Brazil has alleged high crime rates doesn’t mean people should join the stereotype…. The truth only came to light when the Brazilian police started to do their own investigations.
