Don't Steal a Candy Bar in Watertown, New York

   It's great we live in an area where we can afford to react to crime many would consider too trivial for police to bother with.

   Friday a Main Street man was arrested for the May 25 theft of a $1.49 candy bar from a Stewart's store.

    I wouldn't call it in, but the chains do it as a means of showing they are serious. I'd be a little chagrined explaining to the officers someone took a Slim Jim. I'd deal with it in other ways.

I believe your attitude contributes to why we have an epidemic of drug abusers in our nation. This guy probably stole something every day and finally he got caught on camera. You can bet he didn't just steal from that store but from all over the community too.
I am sick of hearing the people who coo over Abbie Hoffman, complain because we have the most people locked up in our country. We lock them up because they were raised to be butt holes. Specifically, we teach them that rules don't apply to them, and they are free to do whatever they want, no matter how affects other people and whose stuff or children they take or corrupt.

This guy gets arrested for stealing a Candy Bar yet our president, Justice Dept head and head of FBI let Hillary off scott free.. Yes lets live in the Democrat get out of jail free caRD.
Whats even worse was when President Clinton pardoned Hillarys brother and let him out of prison....

Yeah, we know how your deal with it. Charge the clerk. Which means the crook goes on to steal again, no consequences.

Well we have a strange way of dealing things nowadays, ie drug councilers? maybe there's a counciler that can help, in my day it would be grab a broom and dustpan, and mop.

I agree with you, I would have sat him down and gave him a choice i can call this in or you can pick the papers up in the parking lot and let this be a warning .

How do we know this person has not done the same thing before and it was "dealt with another way"? I'll bet a lot more of it goes on that the store does not catch. I think the police would prefer that we we leave their job up to them. Just my opinion.

I have no problem making the guy pay a price. But when the police and the courts spend thousands arresting and prosecuting, I just wish Dannie's pants suit would add FreeCandy to her list, as it were.

Geezus, how about we teach our kids not to steal. If parents actually watch their kids and taught them right from wrong, we wouldn't have to worry about the "thousands spent" arresting and prosecuting. Oh, I'm sorry parents today are too busy on their iPhones playing pokemon.....it's pitiful.

At least he wasn't using a cell phone while driving! Because someone died somewhere from that this year.

Exactly.
Drug users steal a lot to supply their drug use, when there welfare money runs out or they have sold all their foods stamps for cash, by going shopping for other.
They should be held accountable by law like every body else.
Years ago I could watch this in my own street. Numerous break ins in cars in the neighborhood. One drug house in this street, the address was every other week in the paper for the people stealing something and not just small stuff , at Walmart, Herb Philipson, Hannaford and so on.
