the same coat auctioned on ebay for $15 with free shipping, and a better coat could have been found at salvation army - if they aren't all ebay now too
but i guess stealing is more exciting until your caught
meanwhile, democrats have shoveled $$$$$ of money to security cameras that simply have not paid off
furthermore, I've been a victim of $350 theft in a store area myself, and the security people (this is 2006) are full of crap: they are like "you have to go frame by frame it has no fast forward". (you'll NEVER f'ing find the theif unless your simply desperate or ordered to do so, using "modern security equipment").
so you have security staffers $$$, security equipment (allot of it IMPORTED), god knows how much it costs every time they have to pull a video for police - they take literally ALL FUCKING DAY to go through a day of videos on many of those system: possibly a week or more for multiple cameras.
cost of letting idiot have the coat (and checking people as they leave, as used to be customary / cashier did it) ?
did they save any money yet ?? because i'm going to start accusing these security people for major theft of corporate money by knowingly increasing losses instead of moderating losses
