    Wow, some people are just not to bright. I mean why risk your freedom, money, and more to steal a few dollars worth of items? I can see someone wanting to rob a bank, or somewhere with large sums of money, However, I can’t understand why someone, WITH MONEY decides to risk things to steal some item that runs a few bucks. I understand the price on some things are WAY OVER PRICED, yet sometimes people need to understand that its better to go with out, then to try to get over one some store. Maybe 10+ years ago it would of been more possible to do so. Yet in these days & times there are cameras and CCTV everywhere now. So why risk it? Oh well, I bet he will pretend to “Learn his lesson” yet I am sure this won’t be the last time for him. Though I do question what made this story “News Worthy” oh well.

    All of three of you should be ashamed of yourselves due to the fact that you have all forgotten that in this country we are innocent until proven guilty. I am very familiar with this individual and this story is completely false and extremely misleading. Totally an example of media bias, and media sensationalism.

    so did the Orajel just jump into his pocket then?
