Good, let them take everything. When they put in policies to not interfere, they allowed themselves to be taken up the ass by criminals.
Huh? Every time a legitimate business closes due to these policies people are out of work. If my Walgreens shuts down I’m not happy. These idiots should be hit with golf clubs. They should not be allowed to steal. That is my opinion. And I’m right.

If they get violent. Not advocating chooting a non violent Amish kid like the one in the video, but he needs to be taught a lesson.

Shoplifting is one thing but If there is any threat I would just start blasting like Travis. It all depends on the situation. I’ve only pulled my gun twice. So far nobody’s been shot but me. So far so good. LOL

Of course they shouldn't be allowed to steal, but the companies are allowing them to do it and get away. That is the source of the problem. The companies aren't trying to stop them, and they don't want their employees to stop them. The only ones who could probably stop them are average joes but even then they may or may not want to, depending if they're threatened.

Well if the company says let them steal then I guess you let them steal. I couldn’t have that job.

Do they try and catch them? Do they press charges? Does the local DA prosecute.

There's a particular drug store chain around here. I sat grand jury duty once, and a lot of the cases that came by were for shoplifting at that chain. The other (like the big national chains) we didn't see any cases for. Being home grown, this chain knew how to deal with the local skels. And I never knew deodorant was so theft worthy/resaleable.

My neighbor works at Home Depot and says his store allots $11,000 a month for shop lifting.

Is it normal for shoplifting cases to have a trial in front of grand jury? Doesn't seem like a serious enough reason.

In 2 months there will be news stories from outraged, woke, white people about the pharmacy deserts in urban and minority communities and how they have no access to pharmacies and groceries

I got in line at a stop n rob years ago behind a guy who was asking the clerk to turn around and grab different packs of smokes as the guy pocketed various items on the counter surrounding the cash register. The guy then made his purchase and left the store. I asked the clerk to hold on to my submarine sammich and diet Pepsi as I followed the shoplifter out the store towards my police car as I was on duty and in full uniform grabbing some food for a late lunch on Afternoon shift. I ate my sammich in booking with my new friend and third collar of the night.

Socialism at its best. Marx would be proud.

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."

The end result of course is all the stores go out of business and the government needs to step in and be the ultimate provider.

You don't think that's the plan?

Government run food and drug stores are just around the corner in some areas.
Walgreens had something like 28 billion in gross profit last year, I'm sure if they wanted to they could afford security to prevent this but in your eyes it's some sort of government plot to put everyone on the dole:rolleyes: you really can't be that stupid.

In high school, I worked at a grocery store. The store had professional shoplifter catchers. The main guy was very good. The days he worked, the stairs to the office would be lined with people who got caught. There would be a LEO in the office, processing people 2hike one or two more kept an eye on the line, with the other “catchers”.

It’s racist to lock up stuff that people steal... a young Black boy was. Aught shoplifting. He threatened, cursed (normal crap) but kept saying his dad was a lawyer, would sue us all. Well very well dressed Black man came to store before the Police showed. Yep he was a important lawyer. He asked if he could talk to his son. He tore that kid up one side, down the other. (Verbally). “How could you embarrass the family this way...”. Extremely polite to us, didn’t ask to “fix it before the police arrive”. Had the kid sweeping sidewalk, cleaning parking lot of that store for weeks after he made the kid apologize.


THAT was a loving father. If that was the norm. Most security jobs wouldn’t be needed.
