After 2 or 3 times doing it, your address will be blacklisted, and you'll have to pick up all your Amazon packages at a local post office. Also, for a lot of expensive deliveries (like a laptop), the postal worker may make you sign a form saying you received it, but I don't know if that's the case for Amazon.

They're just that, mirrors. It's to make it possible for an employee in one aisle to see what's going on in another aisle, without having to leave the aisle they're in. A manager could use it to watch you from another aisle, to make sure you're not concealing. All you have to do is conceal with your back facing them.

You can wear a sweater, as long as it's cold enough to be wearing one. Just try to blend in with the other shoppers as much as possible. Really, what you wear doesn't matter as much as how you act. If you're looking up at the cameras, or looking around a lot to see if you're alone in your aisle, then that's a big red flag to loss prevention.

Also, I would go for the Wal-Mart. It might be easier to lift from the small places, but that's highly frowned upon, because shoplifting actually causes a lot of harm to family owned small businesses who are just trying to get by (as opposed to Walmart, which is a giant, evil, soul-sucking corporation). Wal-Mart has cut their loss prevention budget in the last few years, so it should be pretty easy to lift from, especially if you're in a small town.

Walmart garden section. The cash register(s) there have them, but they're attached to them via a cable. Go there at midnight when there's nobody in that section. Use bolt cutters or pruning shears to cut the cable, then put the S3 Key in a faraday bag (they're source tagged, so they'll set off the towers if you just walk out with them). You'll have to detag it once you're home.

This is all incredibly risky, and not worth it in my opinion. You can get them from Alibaba for like $10, and they're not tagged. Do that instead.

From the Shoplifting Master List:

Office Depot/Max: Varies depending on the store. Stores considered "low shrink" are easy to lift from, due to lax security. Their cameras are not monitored, and there are no LP. However, "high shrink" stores are quite different. In these stores, the sales lead will dispatch an employee to approach each customer within seconds of them walking in the door. If they think you are suspicious, they will not leave your side, no matter what. Don't attempt to lift if you're being tailed in this manner. The cleaning supplies aisle is usually the best blindspot. Some items are spider wrapped. Many things have an RFID tag in them such as headphones, and fine writing pens. These tags are always stuck to the inside of the box. It's easy to tell, because the box will have been resealed with scotch tape.

Exactly. So may people conflate the end of civilization with the extinction of humanity, or the extinction of all life on Earth. Life will go on; it's civilization that's in danger. It'd be really nice to find a way for that to endure, so we don't end up hitting the reset button, and forgetting everything we've learned so far.

Do you pay attention to people once they've started talking to a (non-LP) employee? Say someone walks in, browses, (conceals something, but you don't notice it), finds an employee and asks them a question, then leaves the store without buying anything. Would you stop paying attention to them when they start talking to the employee?

Well said. This was basically what was going through my head when I was watching news people's commentary on the hearing. Good to see someone put it into words.
