  • The cops are frustrated, if they catch him in the act he gets a citation and goes to court where they do nothing. If you were to take these heathens on a drive out to the end of the South jetty and leave them standing 10 miles from nowhere, it would make them think a little bit about doing anything like this. I know all the conservationists will be up in arms over dumping hazardous material on one of our pristine beaches……. alas there has to be a price for everything…Just one more dirt-bag

  • oh yeah for sure I’ll get right on that! Somebody getting away with stealing from the huge corporate rip-off store…is sort of a folk hero.

    • Yeah and next he should hit up rich, greedy folks. Robin Hood!! You know one thing that is cool about living in America? You can choose who to give your money too. I know, crazy, but you don’t have to support the “huge corporate rip-off store” if you don’t want to. That doesn’t mean you are entitled to be a parasite and steal from the same place you don’t want to support. Your mentality is like the hippies who say “screw the system man” and then go out and get food stamps or dumpster dive. Which one is it? Are you apart of the system or not. Hypocrites!

    • The only problem with accepting shoplifting is that you’re paying for what’s stolen in higher prices. Bet you wouldn’t be so OK with it if they actually listed the markup you pay for this on your sales receipt. “What??!! A $5 surcharge to pay for people who steal??? WTF???” SoHum grocery prices have gone through the roof because shoplifting is rampant. I’ve witnessed this every year at this time. I’ve also witnessed a local teen rip off Shop Smart on multiple occasions. I reported it to a clerk who just shrugged and said, “We don’t have the time or energy to deal with them. They get released and come back the same day to steal more.”

  • Hank Williams JR. has sure gone down hill.
