  •  I'm not saying that what she did was right. (11+ / 0-)

    But what she did does not justify bringing felony charges.

    You don't seem to recognize how severe a punishment just getting fired would have been to this person.

    If they had just fired her ass and she eventually manages to get another job somewhere and chooses to do the same thing she did at Walmart, then she risks getting fired again, going for who knows how long without any income at all.

    As for Walmart, I really don't like that place, but it really doesn't make any difference where she worked, felony charges are outrageously over the top here.
