King - I was amazed to find out the amount of theft from the grocery stores. I didn't know until I worked at one. Many of the people stealing are not hungry in the least. The most stolen item is booze. Then meat / baby formula / pharmacy stuff. and no, they are not feeding their babys with the formula, most are selling it. Many of them are drug addicts or "crack heads" as you term them. These are not fine upstanding citizens just trying to make ends meet, these are thieves, criminals, mostly career criminals (as you can see, she was caught many other times and warned not to come back). This is not what is wrong with cops, this is what is wrong with people. I watched my manager "warn" people time and time again. Don't fool yourself, this was not a poor hungry soul that couldn't find work and had starving kids at home.
