    you're OK with people stealing as long as the person they're stealing from is richer than them and not you. got it.

    just remember that when someone breaks into your home and steals your stuff.

    You can't can't argue with someone who thinks laws should be selectively applied at their whim, so i'm done here.

      I'm saying we know what causes petty theft. Poverty. And if everyone does their fair share we don't have to deal with the consequences.

        a dying relative. she wasn't even stealing healthy food like apples or meats to cook at home. or clothes during winter.

        she was stealing oreos.

        this was not a crime of need or poverty, it was a crime of petty theft. and it wasn't just once where she could say "we were in a bad place, we had an unexpected bill, i just couldn't afford food this week". it was a years long trend where she decided to STEAL to have treats at work.

        i'm sorry, but while i agree that WM does some unspeakable things and should be punished as such, this woman is nothing but a criminal who should be treated as such. Maybe not a felony level criminal, but a criminal.
