    Kohl's does have some diamond and gold jewelry that they SAY is worth about $3,500 for 1/2 carat earrings. With a "friend" employee who's setting you up 'cause they may have watched her previously on the cameras, but could never nab her ... could work. Then, look at the press, which might serve as an example to prevent future crimes. The smaller $1,000 shoplifting crimes never make the news. There was one at the Durham Kohl's where a mother had her young children help her lift more than $1,000 worth of merchandise.

    luckn4u2 - yep ... our tax dollars so they can get on probation and do it again and again. They have a right to a fair trial. Let's make it swift. Do the crime, clear proof, no funky hearings, give 'em an attorney that day, put 'em in jail, make 'em do the time, grow their own food, sew their own clothes, build their own quarters, no tv, no gym, no public education/degree, no wages (except to pay your keep), then it won't be so "luxurious" that they'll think twice before committing crimes.
