    First of all ... I've seen this happening FOR YEARS in Wake Forest. They usually send in 3 people and all go running out with stuff. Have folks in the parking lot waiting. Was in the store when a Cop so happened to walk in the HTeeter and they all went running out empty handed!! it was halirious!! cop and all of us just laughed.

    Second ... if you go down to the capital you'll probably see all these folks down there protesting ... wearing the diapers and drinking beer. After all they are entitled!!!

    That's funny. I can see the people in those images just fine. Wonder why the Wake Forest Police can't seem to see them.

    The only time they'll do is before the post bail. It wouldn't surprise me if the state takes EBT cards as bail. I fully support all aid given to those who need it, but only if they NEED it. These folks are ablebodied and should be put out on the highways working litter control.

    I wonder if they offered a case of beer as a reward if these talented individuals would turn each other in to get it?

    Should not have too much trouble getting the identity of any of these people. Much better pictures that their drivers license and most other cameras. They must have better quality cameras.

    The thing people never notice is people who act like they are doing nothing wrong, which is exactly how these people acted. We all look for the obvious.

    "but you steal beer and they post a modeling portfolio of you!!"

    It's certainly not one that is flattering. I hope they don't quit their day jobs. Wait - none of them probably has one.

    It seems pretty simple to me that if the beer consumption was cut back, not only would judgement be improved, but there might be money for diapers. But then again I work 40 hours a week and pay merchants for what I need, so I might not fully understand.
