InfernalCatfish: As far as the people defending this d-bag, I really don't understand this. The punishment is not going to be based purely on the cost of a soda, nor should it be. First of all, he's a habitual thief. Secondly it's not just a matter of stealing a soda and that's it. First, he asks for a free water cup, and that's where the theft takes place. Then, when the manager catches him and calls him out for the stinkin' dollar, he refuses and acts belligerent and angry, like he's somehow entitled to the damn soda. The dude brought this on himself. Plus, he was only arrested for petty theft. It's his history of theft that got him this increased charge. The asshole deserves what he gets.

There's a reason why we don't jail people for breaking the speed limit, jaywalking, ect. Petty theft is petty, and not really worth the cost to prosecute and jail, even if it's still morally wrong. If it moves up from petty theft, then sure, it makes sense.

It's why most states have a felony level of theft, usually around $3-500.

We got bigger issues to worry about and bigger bills to pay. This guy stole what amounts to penny candy years ago, and we think it's a good idea to put him in prison for 5 years on the taxpayers dime for hat would amount to sending a FL kid to Havard?

Why not slap him with a fine or community service, a nice stay in the drunk tank for a few days, and focus on the more important things?

Give them the option to reimburse the guy + 50%, or spend 10 days in jail. For a $1.50, he'll find the change.

Listen, and listen carefully.

When I wrote my piece about the seven cent soda, I was responding to someone who said "but the soda only costs them a half a cent to make", and somebody else said "nuh-uh, it's more like two cents to make". I wrote what I wrote to say, hey, ffs, it could be seven cents. You didn't steal seven cents of materials. You stole seven cents of materials and the restaurant's opportunity to make 93 cents of profit OFF those seven cents.

Is this clear?

Sometimes when I get an iced coffee at 7-11, I fill my up with ice, then the coffee. Then, before I put the lid on, I take a sip or two. Then I put the lid on and pay for my coffee.

Don't they give free refills?

No.

Did the guy at the counter care?

A theft hasn't occurred until the proprietor believes a theft has occurred. You pay for the drink? Everybody thinks they're square? You're good.


I don't think she saw me.

algrant33: TyrantII: Putting this guy in jail at a cost of $75K a year for 5 years for stealing something valued at $1, that could be written off the stores books for $0.32.... and that's not even mentioning court and prosecution fees.

Forget right or wrong. This is insane.

Is the state going to take care of the $0.32 writeoff?


Good question.

But it does go to illustrate a point.

McD's goes along and wants the guy put in jail for $0.32, state does to the tune of 75K a year, then the state taxes McD's and McD's customers to pay for douchebags stay in jail. McD's is worse off, citizens are worse off, dude in jail is worse off. all for a stupid, cheap ass soda.

Game theory folks. AKA, just let it go.

Risk mitigation, not risk free (or in this case cost). Otherwise you run up exponential costs, and diminishing returns, and bankrupt your institutions.

Babwa Wawa: MadAzza: What punishment? He hasn't even been convicted.

Do you understand what a judge's job is? (Hint: It has the word "judging" in it.)

As I said, I know no judge is going to give him five years because that would be a ridiculous punishment for this crime, regardless of priors. That's precisely why he shouldn't be charged with a 3rd degree felony to begin with: because it's ridiculous. It makes a mockery of the justice system.

In fact, three strikes laws actually inhibit the prosecution of some crimes - nobody really wants to see a guy go upstate for years for a minor infraction, so the infraction doesn't get prosecuted at all.


Is Florida a mandatory sentence state? Because that shiat DOES happen, when there's a mandatory sentence attached, whether the judge claims he feels the sentence is bogus or not.

xxdangerbobxx: Have I mentioned yet that this train of thought is a blight upon civilized society? That you, sir, are a blight on society at large? You're advocating sending someone to federal prison for 60 months over a $1 drink.


Cool. Where do you live? It would be great (for me) to bull my way into your house and sleep on your couch. Won't cost you a dime.
 
2012-04-23 01:53:44 PM  
This is exactly why places end up charging for cups of water. I actually like water and don't care to have bottled stuff. There's a local pizza place I like that has four locations around town. The location I frequent does not charge for water cups, but one location in a more ghetto part of town does charge for water.

Yeah, but once you're a repeat offender, you're a bigger problem to society than a kid who steals a pack of baseball cards.

The whole concept of petty theft is... you do something small and stupid, you get a slap on the write. But if you keep doing it, you're more of a danger to society most likely.

He's not going to get 5 years, but if he keeps it up maybe he does diserve 5 years.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: Is Florida a mandatory sentence state? Because that shiat DOES happen, when there's a mandatory sentence attached, whether the judge claims he feels the sentence is bogus or not.


Yeah, FL is a 3 strikes state. So if you have a case where someone's on their third strike, you can either prosecute and risk a punishment that doesn't fit the crime, or you can choose not to prosecute at all.

So really, they inhibit the prosecution of minor offenses.

coke or pepsi or the dew?


Coke is the gateway soda. It seems harmless and a lot of fun at first. Then before you know it, your into Pepsi and spiraling out of control. Before you know it, you're lying in a stuporous heap, wallowing in your own excrement, in a Mountain Dew den and blowing chancreous cocks for your next 20 oz.

Yeah but that's not half as much fun as randomly tossing the image out there into future threads so that people think you're an alt. (Though I can assure you, I'll never remember to... Well, it is really unlikely unless you seem like a good sport.)

I'm not sure where I stand on this one. I think the person was wrong and that they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law (meaning that the judge decides their penalty which will surely not be the maximum).

My morals are worth more than a dollar. Would I steal something? Oh, absolutely. Anyone who says they wouldn't is a liar I suspect. I don't need anything though so it would have to be damned valuable before I'd even consider it.

I guess if I'm willing to steal 100,000,000 beanie babies or something then I should refer to them as ethics seeing as I'm able/willing to see reasons to alter them. Meh... Oh well.

As long as we are playing games, the very best solution would be to simply execute the man and donate his organs to other people. But don't execute his with poison since that would screw up the organs. Just lop off his head or hang him or something. Fact is, about 1% of our population is human garbage. This guy's criminal history proves he is a one percenter. The greatest good that he can do for society is to just die and give his parts to help better people live longer lives.

If he's facing the same punishment as a parent who beats their kid badly enough to put him in the hospital, either his punishment is too strict or the parent's is too lax.


Incorrect. Beating a child badly enough that they have to be hospitalized is aggravated child abuse - a first degree felony, punishable by 30 to life.

thecpt: I like you. If I were to do a heist, you would totally be there I assume.


There's a good reason to not commit petty theft. It puts your name onto a bunch of lists. If you're going to give up on society's rules then you're going to be kicked out of society. It has to be worth the risk or it simply isn't smart.

If you're hungry or thirsty to the point of death? Steal away. I'm retired and quite comfortable. If I'm going on a heist I'm going to to want it to be something big, perhaps a delivery from the Fed to a large regional office. Perhaps an aid package meant for a foreign government. I dunno... I'd have loved to get my dirty little dick beaters onto one of the pallets of cash that went over to the Middle East during the early days of the wars. I'd have stolen that - I say that as someone who doesn't need the money and served as a Marine not just once but twice for a total of eight years.

But... For a buck? No. I'll sell out but my morals are worth more than a dollar.

So there's that.

This is why we need a return of cops with nightsticks. Im fairly sure if this guy starts gettin the fark whacked outa him everytime he pulls this crap, hes gonna stop.

Who's worse, the kid who keeps stealing the $0.50 basketball cards, or the one that moves on to more expensive things to steal / worse crime.

Sure some dude continues to take $1 sodas is marginally worse, but there's a key word in that sentence. Short stints in jail with the option to replay the cost of the crime makes more sense then felony imprisonment after 3 strikes of petty theft.

ArkAngel: Babwa Wawa: ArkAngel: In Florida, rape and child molestation are first degree felonies, punishable by up to life in prison.

Rape (attempted assault with intent to ravish female) Felony, Up to $5000 Fine &/or Up to 5 Yrs Pen.

Grand Larceny (over $300) Felony, Up to $5000 Fine &/or Up to 5 Years Pen.

I think we can agree that it's absurd to be facing five years in the poke for stealing a farking soda that cost the victim less than a cent.

Next time try checking the actual Florida statute books.

Aggravated child molestation is a capital offense (or at least it was until Kennedy v. Louisiana, guess they haven't updated their laws). Aggravated rape (using a weapon) or rape of a child is a life offense (minimum life in prison). Rape of a special victim (old person, handicapped, cop, drugged out, or threatened) is a first degree felony (30 years to life). Standard rape is a second degree felony (15 years).

In addition, if they are deemed a "dangerous sexual felony offender" (violent, causing harm, using weapons, attacked multiple people, on parole/probation), they have a minimum of 25 to life. Plus, in Florida, rapists/molesters aren't subject to "good behavior" sentence reduction.

In some countries they just lop off your right hand regardless of the value of the the stolen object. But here in the US, there is long-established precedent for considering the value of an object when determining penalties for its theft. You know, grand theft vs petty theft and all that.

squirrelflavoredyogurt: It mentions nothing about the packaging costs, shipping costs (from farking Ireland), cost for the water and C02 that is also needed to make syrup into a Coke, not the cost of cup, the lid, the straw, or the labor to connect the syrup container to the system that combines the ingredients to make a soft drink.


They gave him the water container that he used for free. He could have used his own container to steal the soft drink. There goes the cost of the cup/lid/straw.
The CO2 is produced in industrial quantities, usually semi-locally, for cheap as well.

It might not end up costing the store 'less than a cent', but it's still 'pennies'.

Carth: Do you think 5 years in jail is an appropriate response?


Personally? Not until you get to the point that he's apparently a serial petty thief. Even then, 5 years isn't necessarily what he's going to get, it's the maximum he could get. He'll likely end up on house arrest with a monitoring bracelet. Whatever the situation, obviously what's been tried in the past hasn't worked.

In soda economics, the cup costs more than the drink. Only by subsidizing it by having a Coca-Cola ad plastered on the side, does the cost drop down to the 2-3 cent range.

The REAL crime is the fries. The large fries have 50% more fries than the small, yet cost 100% more!

There was a similar case here in CA a few years back where a guy got his 3rd Strike (and 25 years) for stealing a piece of pizza. There was the normal bleeding heart outrage, until the facts started to come out. Not only did he steal a piece of pizza - he stole it off the plate of a teenage boy and then challenged him to do something about it.

Here, you have an idiot who has had multiple run-ins with the law. He blatantly steals something, and then when confronted, instead of being contrite or trying to rectify the situation, instead decided to get belligerent and create a scene. This is what is known as a habitual offender. The cost of what was stolen is irrelevant. Theft is theft.

Interesting how many people are willing to look the other way with McDonalds money. Wonder how many would feel the same way about this dipshiat coming and taking a soda out of their fridge every day. And if he can do it, why can't his friends? After all, wouldn't defending your property would cost you more than just letting them take it.

I did for the first time last Saturday at Ikea. They charged me $1.00 too much when they itemized two kids meals instead of charging me the combo rate. I figured stealing the Coke evened things out rather than waste my time trying to get a refund.

I've never seen people getting a cup for water at any fast food place here. There isn't even a water option at the soda stand. Very American.

Mearen: Over a farking dollar! A single dollar! Society has failed when we're locking up people over a drink worth a farking dollar. It's beyond absurd and everyone involved in his arrest should be fired.



Clearly you lack reading comprehension. The guy got locked up for many things more than $1. I've got no problem putting him in jail if he did what he is charged with.
