She was just following the DFL plan. taking from the rich and giving to the poor. She was just a hard working waitress and these people clearly have money since they are eating out. We need to start sending a message that this type of stuff is not ok. She basically gets no punishment.

But it's OK if if the right wingers take a few (millions) dollars Mr. Skilling?

This has happened to me before in Minneapolis !!!

Keep your receipts and quickly check them against your statements. I also had a waitress at a restaurant suggest writing with a very odd color (red, green, bright blue) instead of black, since she knew of it happening at the restaurant where she worked.

Bill, this is great ! If you don't mind a dishonest waitress stealing from you, make sure you eat at restaurants a lot so you can pay the higher taxes we'll have shortly.

It will take a lot of meals for you to pay back Bush's wars in Afghanistan (where's Bin Laden?) and Iraq (glad we found the Weapons of Mass Deception).

She should just be able to take what she wants, when she wants it, and from whoever she wants. Clearly she is taking it from people she beleives have more than they need.

She is an inspiration to all the Obama/Dayton mindset graduates.

They are Obama's wars now. Or did he order immediate withdrawal from those countries?

There should be no option for someone to have their record expunged. Once guilty - ALWAYS guilty !

If someone can't be trusted for stealing $133 in tips, future employers should be able to know about it. It's a character flaw.

If he ordered an immediate withdrawal, you Keyboard Conservatives would say he's weak on terrorism.

100% full blame goes to the war criminals who lied, exposed a top-secret American CIA agent, fabricated intelligence data, etc. to get us stuck in both hellholes.

Why should he(Obama) be concerned what conservatives say about him? Is he listening to what they are already saying?

How about she pays people back, does community service, along with some jail time, and we don't expunge her record! She committed a crime, why should she get a break and have it appear that she never did this as long as she pays people back. Not a lot of motivation to stop doing the crimes.

Probably has a big rack that the judge liked.
The next time you read about her, you will probably find she is has a position of tax auditor for MN who stole 2 or 3 million dollars.
