Corsair that was funny. Walmart for these shoplifters is like the raid roach motel " they check in but they dont check out". Nj Ghost what are you five years old? . sounds like you have more to worry about than comments on the patch if you say your family have been "falsely" accused of drugs and stealing. Maybe we,ll catch you on an episode of " intervention" on the A&E channel.

"processed and released on a summons" for robbery? Thats whats wrong with this picture. Lock them up for a year for 1st timers and see if they continue to steal.

Not that anyone deserves their purse stolen. I want to know who is the idiot who goes to FOHO with over $1K in cash.

It's only robbery if she assaulted someone during the theft. However I agree lock them up and let them see what jail is like for a year. No cell phones or privacy.
