I am going to be honest friend, I could write lots of novels and have been working on one for awhile. You should have seen the time I was homeless in Alabama and was offered a place to work and stay by one of the heads of a male teen sex ring. He pimped male teens to judges, lived in a mansion, and had some really strange friends. I was out of there once I realized what was going on. When you have no family or friends strange things seem to occur. By the way I know blind programmers, performing artist, mountain climbers, and yes even chefs. It does sound hilarious the way you put it though. lol

His "wall of text" above is likely a result of this reader software. I've seen sight impaired users do really well with this kind of software."
Night wing, you need to reread his post. he didn't say he used food stamps to buy beer. Your kind of snarkiness is just the kind of thing the visually impaired have to deal with every day.edit on 12/6/2012 by schuyler because: (no reason given)

Given the best assumptions made by the reader? I think your stuck. She signed it and she ended it right there. That was the whole point and while he lied to her about what he had the authority to do in getting her to sign. Volunteers eh? Well...That sucks.. means he wasn't a cop. Just off duty, moonlighting security. The distinctions pretty important for who you'd take it up with. The Police Department has internal affairs if you think coercion happened. If not, State Police usually fills the role. However, if he was working or volunteering for the store? Off to civil court you go...and don't bother trying in my opinion, if you cannot hire an attorney. They will have a good one for their side and he'll tear ya up if you try representing yourself.
"I hate to say it..I really do...but right or wrong on this, your options likely ended without some expensive legal help when she signed the paper. Just my two cents.

Not to sound like a jerk here but, If you really wanted something to be done about your situation with this store, call a local news affiliate." They love this stuff. Random people calling from ATS probably won't do much for you.
Oh no, you don't sound like a jerk. I thought of that, but I am not for causing a scene. Although, I think this guy needs to be taught a lesson, and am almost considering it. He wouldn't show us a video that he claimed showed that we lifted the beer on purpose. I called to chat with the manager, but I was transferred to this guy and he hung up on me when I was being humble.

Then I wish you well.
It just sounded funny the way you put it.
Cops are hired by stores for security (I know.)
The story is always the same. Oh, I forgot to pay.
Sometimes it really happens. Sometimes it doesn't.
No way for anyone to tell what is the truth.
Just don't blame it all on the cop. He was just doing his job. This time it happened to be you.
