I am of the opinion that not every personal or business problem is society's problem.
Here's a sub shop worker who was giving away product so he gets arrested for the $83 shortfall. Sure, he likely did more till caught...but how much police and court time is spent documenting it ?
If you steal from me in this way, I'll fire you and you'll never get a reference. In fact, I know "employer speak"....That's how you tell someone not to hire someone without saying it.
Employers can impose greater sanctions than the criminal justice system that will just plea this one down to a bald tire.
