Surprising to me a story like this lands in a major newspaper. I worked in discount retail early in my career and this type of theft is common...called under ringing.
These young women made a bad choice and should pay consequences...but, do they deserve to have their names smeared online?...for a $500 crime that is so very common?? I just don't get the hype.

You have to understand that this is Snooze day! Anytime you see a story like this show up it means that they needed to scroll some other story off the site that their bosses (AIPAC) really didn't want put onto the internet.

It's dorky to call someone a dork!

I prefer the term
"Pot Stirrer"

Oh, you meant cause you believe me to be a racist. See, thats just your opinion of me, and really it's not even really me, but simply a persona that I present online to others. If you knew me IRL you might be surprised by some aspects of my personality.
This is why I dont mind you calling me silly names that you cannot prove. It is what you perceive of my, and to an extent what I want you to see. I say stirring the pot, you say racist. My term invites intercourse of ideas, your term incites reactionary and hostile posts.
Or to put it another way

Now you know the lady buying the stuff is going to say she didn't know it was that expansive or insanity or something. The lady selling them is going to say she was forced to do it... they will both get off.

Where did Obmona come from in this story and name calling. I do agree this is a strange thing to be international news it does happen everyday. I worked at wal-mart and while was there the same thing happened and i didn't even see it in the local news.

These two Mississippi queens have a total of three teeth between them.

Anyhow, when people steal from stores, the stores just raise the prices to make up for it. We all pay for these thieves actions.

The name calling came because this j_e_r_K had to be a racist and bring race in to this non-race issue.

But I am sure whoever this person is will be glad to see any response because that is what they are looking for...funny how offensive or bold some one can be when they don't have to identify themselves...this person is a racist and a coward.

I did not insult you until you called me a racist.
You think I am a racist I believe you to be an idiot, we are each entitled to our opinions.
You are not the moral compass of the inet to determine what does and does not constitute racism, you are but a single opinion, so quit deluding yourself that you have super powers of morality cause you dont!

Get a life!

Cheers!

no threats here...so go ahead and report abuse if you must...I merely suggest you out your self and see if any one else doesn't believe you are a racist. I think you just proved it.
Oh my gosh you scare me! Like I said previously you are a coward. I am sure IRL you would be too cowardly to make these statements.
"How did I belittle white people? Please, just because I said that they are stupid for vote for obamma?" do you not see the racism in your comments?
You seem pretty tough your self bi little one...Me not so...so I will continue to hide behind the keyboard....but you my tough friend must have nothing better to do.
I stand behind my comments...would love to meet your racist face in person so I could let you know what I think of you in person. You call it a threat...I think you are just a big baby coward who is just having fun insulting me and any one else who dares to stand up to your cowardly bs.

Ok so you are seriously wrong here...you may think I am an idiot, however, I know in fact that you are an idiot.

It sucks to be you.

Cheers to you!
