In Devon, Connecticut, it is unlawful to walk backwards after sunset.
hell why even prosecute those caught shoplifting then?
i mean it's covered in their shrink margins right? so no one was hurt. basically what you're telling me is, stopping crimes like this costs too much, or may get you hurt so better to just let them happen.

Thats just the way it is, and it is why stores have specific loss prevention agents.
I bet the real truth is, the loss prevention agents are union and that employee stepped over the union line and did their job for them while the agent was sitting on their ass in the back room. Union workers from my experience tend to have the attitude that they will work when they get around to it or when it fits their schedule.
