I needed to post this after a person in here mentioned how a shoplifter can sue a big retailer due to a false stop or harassment. I LOVE this story because it looks like like Lesleigh Nurse, a white woman, used the self check out to steal about 180 dollars worth of groceries at Walmart, got caught, and still successfully sued them for millions. She told them the self-checkout froze when they caught her. Have any of you used that excuse before? I may have to use that if I'm approached or busted. haha She got arrested, the case went to court, the court threw out the case, Walmart still sent her a civil demand letter saying they want 200 dollars so she sued them and won.
It always brings a big smile to may face when LP or employees treat shoplifting as if you committed 1st degree murder, rape or a crime against a minor and then see the actual law dismiss or disgregard it. If you want a good laugh, go over to reddit's loss prevention page and see how they get angry when the shoplifters they catch end up gettin a slap on the wrist. hahaha Do these dummies not understand that law enforcement has to deal with murders, shootings, assaults, etc. and will never place a high priority on someone shoplifting 150 dollars worth of stuff??
If you have been on this forum for a while, we are told to ignore civil demand letters from these companies if you get caught shoplifting, this case here shows that civil demand letters don't mean shitttt!! LOL at Walmart losing the case and still sending civil demand letters, that's a whole new level of stupidity. hahaha
