    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.
