  • More Evidence the UK is Decriminalizing Shoplifting

    From the UK Daily Mail:

    Thieves could escape jail in shakeup of sentencing rules - if they are drug addicts.

    Since I am not involved with retail security I have not paid close attention to it but I do remember reading that stores in my area a suing civilly people caught shoplifting.

      Yeah. I think accusing the UK of decriminalizing shoplifting is pushing it too far. They absolutely are not.

        It's happening in Australia and in my state with the Premier's (Governor) decision to issue fines even if it is the 15th offence by a S/L. It was under $325.00 in value - fine and record plus over $325.00 was either a Court Attendance Notice which could lead to other things. To speed up the process, it is all about churn and burn !! It means S/L's will count what they take in 1 hit.

          If anything, this story seems more like there is an attempt to decriminalize drugs.

            Now you guys get a taste of every day life in Good Old England.
            Political correctness and pandering to Religion *Cough* Islam *Cough* and people the Government consider ''Victims''.

            Personally I am fed up to my back teeth with it, if I ever want to steal a computer all I need to do is put makeup on my face to look like a druggy and I'll get away with it scotfree! its f'cking rediculous.

            I really hate my Government and their petty oity toity pussy footing around things.

            They EVEN try Brainwashing Children to be Politically correct!.

            It makes me really angry to know that girls and guys like us are unable to perform our duties given to us because the Government is too pussy and scared to upset someone!.
