Do you get the first one that TP posted?

I see state after state declaring that they won't prosecute any crimes [shoplifting] under 8-9 hundred dollars now. Any employee anywhere is a fool to go after a thief for that amount of money. Bank tellers are taught to just hand over the money, it doesn't matter.

The clerk from what I saw was on her phone, and may have grabbed the thief just out of instinct, like she has kids or something and doesn't want them reaching into a fire?

Or maybe the clerk originally grabbed the woman in self defense, as you can see the thief's hand is outstretched toward the working woman?

Now the clerk no longer has a job. I wonder if she will sue the Navy store for firing her, claiming duress and termination under false pretenses?

Maybe the woman who used to work can now go on state aid, and live the dream having learned you can go around stealing all you can carry out of a merchants store, and there is absolutely nothing legally a merchant can do about it?

I remember in Portland, about the time Babs was hanging out on Burnside street, [ : ) ] the cops were only issuing traffic tickets for grand theft auto. Why would any poor person work for minimum wage is what I wonder? If you can steal up to 900 dollars at a time, with no worry of penalty, if you have any gumption at all, they could be shoplifting 5 thousand per day. If you think about it intrinsically, only stupid people work for low wages. There is no penalty anymore for being a small time thief, as long as your conscience doesn't bother you, if you have one


???????????
You refer to the video then go on a long long rant about stealing. Nothing was stolen. Stephanie was fired. I would gave fired her. Grabbing an adult out of instinct. WTF.

to the right wingers that commented
I post a video thats not right wing or left wing. Its simply a video of a store clerk doing the wrong thing. Its so obvious she is wrong. No politics. Its not in a political thread.
Yet those on the right are questioning if the store clerk is wrong because somebody on the left posted the video. You guys on the right just so biased against the left wing that you cannot objectively view the video. Really weird

Why must you continue to say I am on the right?

I have stated repeatedly for years that I am apolitical. I am no more a right winger than you are a Scientologist.

Which word or statement in that entire post led you to believe it was a political post? Because I can't find it.

I actually had other posters in mind when I typed that part of my response

The beginning was directed at you
The end was directed not at you but at the obvious right wingers here that commented on the video
Sorry, should have made myself clearer

just edited it with a space and an added sentence :-)

Total failure by Old Navy employee
A Black woman leaves an old Navy store
Old Navy employee follows her out and accuses her of stealing
At first the Black lady is chuckling because she is innocent
The Old Navy employee, Stephanie says she stole the shirt she is wearing and they have video evidence
Oh boy, it gets really bad as Stephanie grabs the innocent person and wont let go
Amazing the hate some people have against an innocent black woman.

Old Navy fired Stephanie and apologized to the innocent Black lady

https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/old-navy-employee-fired-after-grabbing-black-woman-accusing-her-of-shoplifting-in-viral-video-003324850.html

I hope the black chick gets compensated. Is there any update-on this i would really like to know the outcome. That's one thing I hate when they show videos like this, I never know how it turns out.


Check her facebook account. She is giving updates including all communication with Old Navy management

Oh cool, Thanks!! I find this interesting. Link?



The Yahoo article has her FB link at the beginning of the article

she posted this and the 50% off coupon she received
very savvy shopper. A lot more savvy then me

"***ALSO***SMH the reason I keep my tags...June 12th 2 days after the incident (June 10th), I received the 50% off everything email (this is normally when my receipt is discounted), My normal custom is to have my previously purchased items in bag accompanied by receipt in case tags are needed). Still too traumatized to go back to the mall for my discount tho.🤦🏾‍♀️ #IKeepMyTags"

I watch Peoples court and I hear all the time from the judge. What proof do you have of how much you paid for that item
Defendant - I threw away the tag and receipts

See that? She's to traumatized to go back in the store. Probably has PTSD? She is laughing about how well her plan to sue the store worked out. Works here, sans the lawsuits.

How much do you think she should be compensated for her trauma? My bolding above.

She even says normally she keeps the receipts. So this behavior which you didn't say you watched completely is beyond her norm. So why shouldn't the lowly working clerk have some suspicion?

Do you find that racist, that she suspected this customer of shoplifting for wearing the tags in and out of the store, when even that customer says that is not normal, even for this savvy shopper?



I simply posted this for the illegal detention
Its a pretty serious action to hold somebody against their will. You better make sure you are 100% right with absolutely no doubt to deprive an individual of their freedom. Even with mall security present, Stephanie refused to let go of an innocent person

But is it illegal detention? Did that employee have probable cause to suspect she was shoplifting? I would say, yes, because a reasonable person would probably believe that she was shoplifting, given she was wearing their clothing brand with the tags still on. Depending on the laws there, I would say the employee didn't detain her for an unreasonable time, or in a harmful overly aggressive manner. There may be specific laws protecting merchants from lawsuits in situations like this. I would love to see an investigation to see if the shopper has ever indicated she knew wearing tags into a store could lead to this type of situation and if she has any motivation to bait them. Apparently she loves going viral. They should also investigate the employee and see if she has a past of racial profiling. And how many times she has been right VS wrong spotting shoplifters.

Any reasonable person who sees someone wearing a shirt with the tag still attached leaving a store where that specific shirt is sold would 100% have reasonable suspicion the item was stolen. I don't care who you are, if you're wearing clothes and leaving the tags on (not by accident), then you're an idiot. Plain and simple.

Perhaps I should load up everything I have in my refrigerator, drive on over to WalMart or Smith's, grab a cart from the parking lot, load it up, then walk around the store for a little while, then walk right out the door. Then I can claim they're racially profiling me and whatever else that crack-lady is ranting on about. 😈

At the Smith's near me someone would probably hold the door open for you.
