OMG...you think it's okay to steal food? How about getting a job and buying it? How about going to a local food pantry....there all over the place. How about going to a local church and asking for help...99% will feed a family as long as that said family doesn't abuse the help...like the family did Al.<quoted text>Psst. Yes it is.
Shoplifters can be good people. Committing a petty crime does not automatically make you a bad person. There are certain crimes that would certainly disqualify you from the title of "good person," but shoplifting is not one of them. I did not say that *all* shoplifters are just people trying to feed their family, I used a specific (although certainly not unique) example - stealing some food to feed your family in the absence of any other options does not make you a bad person.
Stealing clothes? What are you talking about? I said food.
There is no excuse for stealing and if you start out with simple shoplifting and get a simple slap on the hand, before long you'll be robbing your neighbor next door...because it's a easy something for nothing way of life. You're completely and utterly foolish on this topic.
