    We are hardly talking about "spilled milk" and whether they are teens or adults is irrelevant. Actions have consequences. If they choose to engage in a certain course of action,t hey should be willing to accept whatever those consequences are. I think anyone who violate the property of another should be subject to whatever consequences the property owner sees fit.

    Have to wonder if they could electrify the outbound 'inventory control' stations, so that the two zapped people as they walked out with stolen goods.... don't mind me, wandering thoughts.....

    So, what is your solution. Wish them a pleasant day as they leave your store?

    Tell you what will happen. Walgrens will close this store and move it a half mile up the road to a safer neighborhood.

    That's pretty sad, but.... given this video and other incidents... possibly accurate.

    You cannot shoot people for petty theft and vandalism if you are not endangered. Well you can, if you to are willing to pay the price.

    Not sure how many of these fine upstanding people attacked the employees, but I would hazard to say if you were an employee and multiple people attacked you by throwing things at you causing injury you could be justified in shooting your attackers. Now if you shoot a kid running out the door with a bag of chips that would be completely different.

    They put an urban WalMart in near Union Station in DC. That place has at least a half dozen uniformed security at all times. I imagine they also have undercover security. Plus eye in the sky style video cams everywhere.
