She does have a Roman nose,eh?

She signed a letter promising to appear for her court date? That makes me feel a lot better. She gets booked on five charges, is recognized by store security as a prior offender and walks right out of the police station. Oh that's right: she's white.

Do you really think white has anything to do with it? I hope it doesn't. The fact of the matter the jails and prisons are overflowing and need the space for the more serious criminals (trying not to belittle thieves here). So I think they try not to fill up the jails with what "they" consider petty crimes.

Yes I do. She doesn't sound like a very trustworthy person and yet wasn't even required to post bail. Pretty good! How soon before she's back at the supermarket?

She should go to BJ's. Steal in bulk.
