Stop and punish the man from stealing 5 cents....and he will most likely not try to steal $1.00.

I agree with this arrest. It let's the guy as well as the community know that "stealing is stealing", whether it be 5 cents or $5,000.

It would be no different only if the paper was stacked up on the sidewalk next to a public street.
But with that frame of mind Bama, imagine the amount of signs that each wall or yard or whatnot would need. You would need signs to protect your signs. "Please do not remove the 'keep off of grass' sign".

Or maybe the school could have just one, Big sign on the entrance;

This was interesting. I am surprised how many people think it's okay and not theft.

just had this conversation with a guy I know and was surprised by his defense of the electric car driver

he thought because he donated so much to the school he was entitled to take whatever he wanted, my response was did he give to give or did he do it to buy special consideration

there is more to this story
