I would never promote myself to be looking like this woman. Although I condone her actions as i'm a criminal myself, I don't condone her looks.

My thoughts exactly. It's pathetic. Shoplifting is a non-victim crime in my eyes. Stealing from a major shopping store that turns over millions and millions of pounds a year is nothing. Police should stop wasting their time with stupid stuff like this and concentrate on more serious crime such as rape, burglary, and sexual offences etc.

May the 15th and we are now in July. Why the delay? Reduces the chances of recall to memory doesn't it?

popular myth, prices don't go up.... by that reasoning they would go down if shoplifting was reduced, and you reckon that would happen ? not a chance..... and 'prolific thief' is actually right, the old bill have far more important stuff to be doing, and people are quick enough to point out how limited their resources are, so the stores should take responsibility for protecting their stock ..........

Meat is money today !. With families and the working person finding it increasingly difficult to making ends "meet" (hmm) im not surprised or shocked in the slightest that this woman is doing what she is doing along with hundreds of others, If somebody has a leg of lamb for sale fresh which is a fraction of the cost of a supermarket, then i know what most would do.
I agree on the above, surely big chain supermarkets should take more action and care over their stock to stop this from happening.
I think yes its a low level crime in the scale of things, but its a big finger to the hard worker who saves pennies for this sort of luxury.
