        I hear you both but violence begets violence. Anyway soon there will be no stores so there will only be the internet and food banks. Perhaps we will hear of food bank robberies next ?

        Did you even read the article? The assaulted a staff member but your trying to justify that as them struggling?

        Wake up.

    I don’t really care about people shoplifting, but giving staff and security guards grief, because they are no good at putting items in their pockets and not getting seen is an idiot move. If you are going to do it leave independent shops alone, and leave staff who get little money alone. See more artcials on benefit cheats and shoplifters than politicians and bankers who steal/waste tax payers money in the millions . Why is this ??????? Anyone????
