    Sounds like a sting operation even though they say they won't prosecute. I am sure some will show up anyway.

    May not be. I remember meeting a guy years ago who did loss prevention seminars for retail stores and was good at  showing you how vendors and employees would steal and how to combat it, He told the attendees he got his experience as a milkman stealing form stores and finally changed his ways and decided to show retailers how vendors would steal. 

    the guy was making six figures to tell people how he used to steal from them and stop others form doing it to them,

    Saw a guy go through a line at Tractor Supply  with about 6 or 7 vice grips he had hidden under some sacks of feed. I saw him do it,  I knew the manager and had warned him. Was fun watching them stop him just outsude the door and forced him to wait on the police.

    I stole a True Detective magazine from the local drug store back when I was about 10..
    It had a semi naked gal in distress on the cover and I knew my Mom wouldn't approve.

    Long story short I left it in the bag with my comic books and Mom found it, she hauled me back to the drug store and made me fess up..
    Mr. Prichartt forgave me after a little talk..
    My Dad **** my **** when he got home.

    The **** whipping was easier on me than the fessing up.


    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    Rebelling against what exactly ?
    3 meals a day , Ac  , Safety , New clothes every couple months , New car at graduation , A stable home environment...What's to rebel against.
    I will agree growing up with all the Perks leads to a feeling of no danger , no excitement ,,rather boring....but then again most kids fall on the floor and start crying if their phone breaks..Spoiled Brats. They need to pick crops and hoe weeds hunt for their food for awhile..

    No federal funding. the LPRC is funded by its members who are Walmart, Home Depot, Target, CVS, and most other large retailers.

    A quick pie chart for those interested in the size of this problem, or why large retailers might be interested in the motivation for people to do so:

    Well, if they  don't understand why people steal I wonder if they even know why they charge customers for goods? Maybe that'll be the next study.

    You can find out interesting things in this kind of panel, like the methods being used that the store is over looking, 

    Did you know most people who steal will tell you they don't and justify it in their minds that they weren't really stealing, I caught an employee who stole money orders once, She told the police she did not steal them, she simply printed them out and put them in her purse, her boyfriend took then from her purse and cashed them. The cop said her definition of stealing and his were two different things.

    That doesn't surprise me in the least.

    People will do all sorts of things rather than look in the mirror.

    Some more than others, but ones who resort to thievery typically aren't the best at self-reflection.

    I'm sure if your born to a under privileged family it is okay to shoplift. (Just getting you ready for you know who to chime in) ;)

    i know that, but people need to justify their theft to themselves that it was not really stealing, I remember one employee we caught stealing lottery who said they were going to pay it back as soon as they won the money. Had another who stole the petty cash from a store and put in his personal check so that it would balance. He never did understand why he got fired. He didn't get the fact that if he couldn't take store money no matter what he pretended he was doing,

    Lol.. especially at the lottery one.. that could go on forever and in their mind they could reassure that when they win, if they win, it'll cover all the tickets.  Cause it probably would!

    If you like prison for five years, 

    Actually, my favorite was a guy who didn't steal from the company but stole some credit card numbers and committed fraud. We had him arrested when the police contacted us about it. He got out on bail. about three weeks later I got a call from the police trying to see what addresses we had on file for him. 

    While on bail he got another job and stole more credit card numbers. I told them it might be a good idea to keep him n jail to avoid this problem.
