Food back before he left the store what caused the excessive brutal treatment with ballbats and jumping on the mans back?????

Ok. Let me say that I read the same thing you did in the paper. This shoplifter was approached before he even got outta the store without paying for the steaks. First of all you can not accuse someone of stealing something unless they walk out the door without paying for it. Second. It said they were trying to lock him in the store??? Really? I think the accused needs to seek some legal advise against the local company and the force they used.

Countrygirl, you should have got a video on your phone of them hitting him with a baseball bat. Undue force when detaining a suspect can be a cause for action in court by the accused. If he had video proof, it would help.

What store? I want to patronize that place as often as I possibly can. Can three employees be "Employee of The Month?"

I was thinking the same thing as I read the situation. I guess sometimes we don't react as quick as we should. It would have to be on the stores video cameras though. So there's his evidence.

Stop watching 1960 reruns and read the statutes. Old ladies shouldn't clank and you do not have to wait till they exit the store. You have a brand new digital camera torn from it's wrapper shoved up your whatever, shows intent.

.... and put the bullet back in your pocket, Barney.

In the first place there isnt any piece of meat worth getting yourself hurt for. They knew who he was anyway. The best place would have been to let the city police take care of it. Believe me I was in retail in the city for years. When you call them. They are there in less than a minute. Let them take care of it. I hope that one retailer learns a lesson about how to handle a shoplifter. I hate a thief myself. But its not worth getting hurt or charged over.Believe me London is full of shoplifters and thiefs > I used to catch them weekly. The city cops done a great job for me.

"Not a piece of meat worth......"

It's a question of character and resolve not meat. Glad you are an "X."
