I bet this person will never steal again.

Seems to me the objective was to use humilation to teach an important lesson to someone. That has to worth something.

In this one case, perhaps the officer should be given the benefit of the doubt.

THE GIRL WAS WRONG FOR STEALING BUT IF HER STORY IS TRUE AND THE POLICE OFFICER MADE HER CHANGE IN FRONT OF HIM HE SHOULD BE FACING CHARGES HIMSELF. IF THAT WAS MY CHILD I WOULD BE BRINGING A CASE AGAINST HIM

Yeah, so what's wrong?
You stupid little wh*re, you WERE not arrested, you now do NOT have a record. The cop did you a favor you stupid bimbo.
Big deal, bra and panties, same thing you wear to the beach.

Sounds like yet another attempt to deflect culpability. We'll see.

After reading the article of "Teen says she was forced to strip after caught stealing" I was outraged that the teens mother was more concerned with police departments recovery of evidence than she was with her daughter who committed a crime. Carmen Negron chose to commit a crime in which she secreted STOLEN items purposely in places she thought authorities wouldnt check. Police are supposed to recover evidence from criminals to present in court. Next time you decide to commit a crime maybe you will try to hide the evidence in your sock so you wont feel violated just like the store manager felt after you stole from them.

If she went to the beach she probably had worn skimpier outfits. she wasn't forced to strip,she was forced to return items that she stole. Thats a huge difference. the fact that she wasn't arrested just means she was cut a huge break probably by the store who just wanted their clothes back. All she did was pay the price of humiliation for stealing and maybe she won't steal again. Officer Great job.

Hey, at least she had some underwear on. I just hope she was wearing clean inderwear like mamma always reminded us to do.

But that was in case we got into an accident.

So the crimminal is once again going to be turned into the victim. They always have more rights than those they commit a crime against......I'm waiting for Mr. Sharpton to appear!!!!!.....Maybe if she didn't try to steal she wouldn't have been in such a position!!!! HMMMMMM!!!!!

Ooooh, poor little me. I broke the law, but now you've gone and embarrassed me by making me give back what I stole. Bad policeman for doing your job.(Maybe that's why mom's tell kids to always wear clean undies ... so when you're caught, you at least look clean!!!)

Let me guess the next thing is a law suit and guess who will pay? Us, the tax payers. Before all of the police bashing starts it is obvious that she is a thief. This was premeditated by her, as she freely stated. The police officer was just getting back stolen goods for the rightful owner. I would hope they would do that for me. She was lucky she was not arrested. This should be a lesson for her and her mother, they have to obey the law.

i think the headline for this article is rediculous.. and shes just trying to blow it out of proportion bc she got caught being stupid.. i dont think this cop should be charged in any kind of way.. she deserved it.. its not like he made her get out of the car and strip down to nothing in the middle of the parking lot.. he let her stay in the car.. grow up

Would you rather have an arrest record at 17?
Would the taxpayers rather see this case go through the judicial system?
It might seem harsh and it does look really bad on paper, but a bra and panties is probably less revealing than what this shoplifter publicly wore at the beach the day before.
The headline implied that an officer/pervert took her into a private room for a nude revue. The facts are much different. He did this in front of witnesses. While this shouldn't be an on the books police policy, and he took a real risk here, I really don't have a problem with it in this isolated case. Quick and effective.

Yeah, bring a case against the cop for doing your stupid kid a favor??

you would, would you?

I hope you don't have kids, because if you do, they're doomed as your parenting skills will produce hoodlums just like this future career hoodlum.

If this was my kid, I'd wish the cop had blocked traffic and made her do it with a hundred people watching then she'd think again about her actions.

You have some set of chops to be caught red-handed stealing and then worry more about having to give the stuff back! She must be an 'entitled person' to even have the nerve to complain about this. They should have locked her up and thrown her in a holding cell.
I have an idea... if you don't want to have to return stuff, don't steal it in the first place!!
