Post Judge Orders Shoplifters To Wear A Sign

Shoppers entering the Wal-Mart Supercenter here got a reminder not to try anything funny: Two shoplifters stood outside with signs reading, "I am a thief; I stole from Wal-Mart."

I think that's a great deterrent!!! Surely the embarrassment and humiliation would serve well and ward off repeat offenders at some level.

I'm sure it would. I wonder how long it will take the bleeding hearts to mess this scheme up.

That's because you're thinking about this as a rational person.

As someone who works for public housing, supervises an inmate labor crew, and after 6 weeks of retirement, my Dad couldn't stand it and became a door greeter.........I can tell you for a fact, these people don't give a **** about what anyone thinks of them. All they care about is stealing something to trade/hock for drugs or "return" to Wal-Mart for cash.

Now that's not to say it won't stop the "good" kid from picking up a bad habit....like stealing make-up or tapes, but the Natchitoches Wal-Mart "lost" over $1 million in merchandise in 2006. That's not first timers, that's habitual offenders.

I have had three employees over many years that did speed and they would steel anything that was not glued down. I think they should do jail time and then walk around in with the sign on them and get some media coverage too.
