As Smith left the scene, he stopped to remove his license plate and threw it out. It was later recovered by authorities and used to learn his identity.

Sometimes it's just too easy.

He committed this crime a loin? I wouldn't brisket. Wouldn't have gotten pinched if he had an extra couple eyes of round.

That's when a passerby, Joseph Patrick, saw what was happening, went over to Smith's white 1999 Mercury and yelled at him to stop.

Why the fark would anyone who didn't work at the place bother getting involved?

An old lady tried to steal meat from a store that I used to work at, by putting it in her toque. She was caught when blood started running down her face and employees tried to call her an ambulance

No no, the way it works is, see, they can track your license plate. So if you leave it behind, they can't find you. Although I don't know how they found me this time; somebody must have ratted me out.

Reminds of when I was sitting on my brothers front porch drinking a beer when a questionable character on a bicycle rides past. "Hey guys, wanna buy some t-bones?" He opens up his vest to display the goods. Yum, T-bones lightly marinated in 6 day old armpit juice.

Conversely, if you're trying to steal a license plate by shoving it down your pants - it happens - always remember to remove your 53¢-worth of meat.

Shoplifting isn't really in the same ballpark as serial child molestation. If someone's being assaulted sure, step in if you think you can make a difference. But $53 in meat? F*ck that. Even if I was an employee there I'd just let the cops handle it rather than risk getting shot, stabbed, run over, etc.

Retailers have been training employees not to physically get involved, especially once the thief reaches a car, for the same reason JP got hurt. Which has more value, $53 of meat that isn't yours or your legs? JP is learning the hard way that no one is likely to help with his medical bills or loss of pay. He could sue Smith, but if a guy is stealing meat he doesn't have anything valuable or insurance. I do hope someone helps JP, for I do agree with trying to stop a thief. I will jump in front of a moving car only if my child is inside; not for someone else's stuff.

What a moron. If you want to steal meat (or anything else in a supermarket), just fill up your cart and walk out the door. Stay calm, don't rush, and don't draw attention to yourself by running over another person's foot.

I watched a beer-run at this place by my house awhile back. I was grabbing a 6 of Stella, when 2 kids (looked about 15), lugged two cases of Bud or something up to the counter.
It was the strangest beer-run I've seen. Why rush to the counter and wait for them to ask for ID?

When they bolted, the guy started towards the door, then said "f*ckers" and meandered on back. Wasn't his shiat or mine either. Mumbled something about having to fill out a goddamn incident report, then turned to me.

I pointed at my 6-pack, nodded at the door & said, "so. can I just..."
He sighed and said something about rather you wouldn't, so I got my debit card out and we went about the day.

That store was out $22 or something.

Say what you will about the man, he loves his meat. It's worth stealing, and, if necessary, dying for. It's meat, and it's delicious. And if you have to put it down your pants; and if you have to maim a man - and if, in the heat of battle for the precious beef, one's license plate has to be sacrificed, IT MATTERS NOT. As long as you get away for now to enjoy one more sizzling roast, one more round eye, one more filet mignon!

Shoplifting isn't really in the same ballpark as serial child molestation. If someone's being assaulted sure, step in if you think you can make a difference. But $53 in meat? F*ck that. Even if I was an employee there I'd just let the cops handle it rather than risk getting shot, stabbed, run over, etc.


Getting involved is getting involved. If someone can justify not stopping a shoplifter because it's no big deal, let the cops deal with it, the store is insured, they can justify not stopping a molester because that's not my kid, let the cops deal with it, I have to be at the gym in 26 minutes.

I take it you're not familiar with bystander effect (aka Kitty Genovese syndrome). It is VERY EASY to justify not getting involved, no matter how dire the circumstances. (Why didn't any of those 38 people call the cops? Why didn't someone go down and stop the killer? Because they didn't want to risk harm, let the cops deal with it, maybe it's just a lover's quarrel.) The more people can say "it's no big deal," the more likely they are not to do anything.

And if that's not good enough for you, consider that losing $53 worth of meat means the store has to increase prices due to shrinkage, and because they now have to hire a security guard, use antitheft devices, etc. We all pay for everyone's apathy, even when nobody dies.

No, I'm just pointing out that the same mindset that allows someone to say "Gee that's stupid, chasing after someone for some stolen meat" is the same mindset that allows someone else to say "Better not get involved because..." Apathy isn't something most people can just turn on and off. It's a progression from "Shoplifting is not my problem" to "Calling the cops is not my problem" to "Stopping a molester is not my problem." Experiments on the bystander effect have shown that even if someone is (allegedly) dying in the next room, people have a very easy time not going to that person's aid if anyone else is around. So saying "Let the cops deal with the shoplifters (because I don't want to get involved)" only differs from "Let the cops deal with the child molester (because I don't want to get involved)" in degree.

Now, there may be very good reasons not to chase after a thief; but my original comment was addressed not to the good reasons, but to the people scoffing at someone who DID get involved because it seems so silly. I think the Weeners had to do with it only being a little bit of food. There may have been other reasons to not get involved, but the dollar amount isn't it. And if five other people had jumped on the shoplifter, then fear of getting hurt would have been lessened. (We won't mention the fact that shoplifting isn't a violent crime, and your chances of getting shot, stabbed, killed, etc. are miniscule)

But maybe I'm just saying this because I've gotten involved on several occasions (without losing my life) and maybe it's harder than I imagine.
