She can be wrong as all hell, OJ could have killed his wife, but you know what - IT DOESN"T MATTER. They were found not guilty. It is as simple as that. LET IT GO!! If you are not happy - get a job at Tom's and scratch your own tickets.
Don't like the fact that you are geting screwed at the pumps. Buy stock in Exxon/Mobile - share the profits. But please - if you arehave no part of the solution - quit whining about the problem.....

Actually it DOES matter. The more idiots and money grabbing lawyers win these stupid cases - the more stupid our society becomes. It's why most stores will switch to lottery vending machines or not sell tickets at all. It's why you must pay before you pump gas many places. It's why you have to go to the pharmacy just to by "over the counter" cold medicine. It's why there is uninsured motorists coverage. etc. etc. etc.
People know what they are pulling and don't care how it affects anyone else. More people need to get a backbone and stand-up to all this BS and quit "whining" about their self justification.

Jury was right to acquit clerk
By LARRY A. HICKS The York Dispatch
Article Last Updated: 02/18/2008 10:47:09 AM EST
Casey Nicole Kerr was acquitted last week on charges of theft, receiving stolen property and theft by deception related to her former job as
Here's a short version of the facts of the case: Kerr worked as a night-shift cashier -- 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.-- and she worked alone. Around 4:30 a.m. on Feb. 8, 2007, she decided to purchase 17 lottery tickets, a sale she immediately recorded on the store's cash register as a suspended sale. She had been trained, she and other employees testified, to record all personal purchases as suspended sales when working alone. At 5:30 a.m., she settled up her $180 lottery purchase. At the end of her shift, she went home.
In my judgment, those are the only facts in the case that mattered. It is immaterial that her 17 lottery tickets produced $195 in winnings. They could just as easily have paid nothing.
And it's totally irrelevant that one of the tickets also paid out $100,000. Luck of the draw.
Disagree: Shipley Stores LLC, owner of Tom's stores, disagreed. And so, apparently, did the police and York County prosecutors. Because they all, I suspect, took the position that Kerr had no intention of paying for the lottery tickets unless she won enough money to do so. She bought the tickets without immediately paying for them, they figured, and only paid for them an hour later when she had enough winnings to pay the debt.
But where's the proof that was the case? And even if it were the case, the only important thing is she paid for the tickets -- she said she had enough money in her pocketbook to pay for the tickets if she hadn't won -- before she left the building at the end of her shift.
Only one person -- Kerr -- knows what she was thinking that morning. Employers, cops, prosecutors, judges, jurors and newspaper columnists can't possibly know what was going on in her head and heart when she decided to buy those tickets. They can guess, but they can't possibly know with any certainty because they're not mind readers.
Yet she was arrested for theft of lottery tickets that were paid for before the end of her shift. I don't get it. What's the crime?
What if: Here's a question for you: If a person walks into Wal-Mart with the intention of shoplifting a CD, picks up the CD, walks around with it for 30 minutes while shopping for other items, but then pays for the CD and the other items before he leaves the store, is he guilty of a crime?
I surely don't think so. Maybe he did intend to steal the CD. But somewhere along the line he changed his mind. Maybe guilt set in. Or fear. Who knows? But he doesn't become guilty of stealing the CD until he leaves the store without having paid for it.
Forty-five years ago, I worked my first real job at
a fast-food eatery known as Shenny's.
The rule was made clear on day one -- anything I ate or drank during my shift would be written on a tally sheet.
At the end of my shift, I'd settle up with the boss or whoever was in charge.
It was easy enough. And as long as every purchase was recorded -- as was also the case with Kerr -- it was a mistake-free system.
No one cared if I ate a cheeseburger, fries and a milkshake at 2 p.m., as long as I paid my tab when I left work at 5 p.m.
How is that any different than what Kerr did with the lottery tickets?
At the end of her shift, she paid for them. End of story.
I totally agree with Larry Hicks. I just don't understand where all these holier than thou people are coming from. If she had not won any money noone would be saying a word. It's all sour grapes. Certainly if she had lost and not paid for those tickets Toms would have noticed. Otherwise it would be too easy to steal them. I'm sure they keep a record of how many tickets are sold. They have serial numbers.

If she looked like Paris Hilton I think a lot of these people would sympathize with her. But since she isn't a size 2 with blonde hair people have to resort to critizing her. I wonder what they look like. Are they perfect? Since Gus is so righteous why doesn't he identify himself?

Lets compare -

OJ case: defendent found not guilty
Kerr case: defendent found not guilty

See the similarity?? Both were found innocent of the charges - plain and simple. Nothing to do with what they were charged with. So stop whining about it!!!!

No it's not plain and simple. What Casey did was proven. She paid for those tickets at the end of her shift. OJ was never man enough to admit what he did til he wrote the book, If I did it.

This is not about me. It's about the offspring of Forrest Hill. Did she quit or get fired and why? Will she use Shipley for a reference?
I've been to Carlisle so I know what you look like!

Umm, I don't live in Carlisle so you have no idea what I look like. I think Tom's should pay her for all the free advertising she's getting. And what do you look like Gus? Since you're so perfect.
