This is a one way ticket to prison. I don't know where you're getting your logic from.

You steal <$900 of something once, you might get away with it. You do that on a daily, weekly, or even monthly basis, you WILL be prosecuted eventually.



Thats correct from what research I did.

The trick is the charges for theft can be aggregate.

So steal $900 of merchandise 12 separate times and you can be charged with grand larceny 3rd degree, theft of over $10,000.

The separation of dates for the crimes is not an issue under the law (NYS law but assuming similar practices elsewhere)

Jesus, did those cops just do like an eight ball of coke before going on duty or something?? WTF

EDIT: The family is suing the city for $10 million. The cops released the full video on their Facebook page and are supposedly investigating the incident.

Parents said they had no idea their kid stole the doll and drove to an apartment complex where police, without lights or sirens, rolled up behind them and started banging on their car window with guns drawn and threatening to shoot them. The four year old daughter is having nightmares and wetting the bed, and the baby suffered some kind of arm injury from a cop yanking on it.

I'm sure the cops involved are going to enjoy their administrative leave during the investigation paid vacation before being back on duty by the end of the month.




A good cop, and most cops are good cops, would calmly walk up to the family and say something like "We are investigating a minor incident and we need to talk to you"

On the flip side
Your kid steals a 1 dollar barbie from the dollar store unknown to the parents



Dollar store? Cops must have not had donut money that hour.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Wow, the cop just swept that guys leg for no reason
These cops were so angry and furious, their attitude is akin to capturing a cop killer instead a kid stealing a 1 dollar Barbie
The over reaction is so over the top, I'm surprised they didn't radio for the SWAT team to help them out

I'll bet you on it. That by one year from today at least one of those cops is no longer copping for that police department.

Police chief in Mesa gives police paid time off for beating man and wants to institute policy changes that make it harder for police to beat suspects faces without provocation. So police and their union are suing Mesa to have chief fired.
