They are addicted to stealing, it is almost like being addicted to a drug.
After I’ve been caught stealing I found out how wrong it is and how it is a disadvantage to everyone.
The stores are tying to crack down on shoplifters by making the punishments as strict as possible. The stores get about three cents per every dollar purchased for an item.
If you do shoplift you feel immense humiliation and distrust from friends and family, and your own conscious is hurt if it isn’t then there is something wrong with your feelings not to feel bad about stealing from stores.
Every time you steal from stores they are set back that much money and might even have to fire someone that could be one of your friends. If you do know someone that is in teen court or are friends with someone that is in teen court you will get your discipline from them, believe me I know.
It is a way of life for them, it is how they make their money. If your care takers spend an average of two hundred and fifty dollars on food a week, and someone steals two hundread and fifty dollars of merchendise, the price of food will go up.
This effects you the most because if you wanted to buy something that last month cost five dollars now costs six, now you are spending more money on things. Retail theft isnt just fun and games, it is very serious, and should not be taken lightly!
