Went to a big chain city supermarket at 8am.. I pocketed 2 small coffee packets, 1 chocolate bar & a small packet of almonds.. after concealment of these, I purchased 4 litres of milk.. The receipt checker at the exit checked my I was walking away from her, she made a sound asking me to come back towards her... I realized that I had become a suspect.. I ran away from the store carrying the 4 litres of milk in a bag and the concealed items..

I was being chased by the uniformed store thug.. I was able to run about 100 metres..The store thug was shouting at people to catch me...I was running past an old strong looking man..He started to chase me..I fell down on the main road out of exhaustion.. The old guy hit me on the side of my face.. By then the store thug also had reached me..Public were watching me and it became a spectacle... I was dragged back into the store..

I was searched and concealed items were retrieved by store...The plainclothes lp inside the store snatched about 13 dollars from my front shirt pocket.. I was hit hard on my back 5 times by store thugs..

I was then taken to the back office.. I had to wait for the police constable...a big large daunting thug...he slapped me across my face & scratched the center of my nose which started bleeding..

I was unceremoniously dragged out of the store & was made to sit behind the motorcycle of the police thug... After he started the bike, I pleaded with him to go to an atm..He did that..I.withdrew & gave the police 29 dollars..he threatened me again..then told me to go away..

So total loss for me...13+ 29+ 4 (milk paid for)= 46 dollars

+ve thing : No formal police record

-ve thing: slaps & hits received by me & loss of 46 dollars

This happened in a 3rd world city, not the us...

Nah, some undeveloped countries can be pretty messed up. The idea that some people get beat up for shoplifting and that police will attack you to get bribes is legit. Not sure if this poster is real tho.

I mean I rencently saw a modern video of a shoplifter in handcuffs being taken to jail by the police and then a bunch of shopkeepers pushed past the police so they could beat the shit out of the their while they were in handcuffs.

It is certainly not worth it for an independent person to steal petty things in the country that I am in... It requires membership of an organised group or gang.

The crooked higher ups in politics & business control all theft here..

I really appreciate ur empathy & concern for me & thank you for the kindness..

Yes...having a police record in this country is a terrible thing...because...any police person having access to my records.. would blackmail me & extort money from me on a regular basis... by threatening to expose my shoplifting to my neighbors and family members

I am not well off..but do not need to do shoplifting to survive...

The beatings I received were 5 strong punches to my back, hard slaps to my face & a 2 inch scratch to the center of my nose.. The beatings were done in front of store mgmt/store staff.

Since I am not incapacitated by the beating..I have taken it in my stride...

Being outed as a shoplifter to my parents would have been toxic to me. I'm a fully grown up guy who lives with parents due to necessity. My father would have loved to use my shoplifting capture as an excuse to throw me out of his house had I been outed to him.

Needless to say, I don't plan to resume shoplifting anytime soon..
