Yes, stealing is stealing. She knew what she was doing so should suffer the consequences, although likely she'll just be told off.
Have you ever downloaded music or video illegally?
Ever taken a pen from the office, photocopied, or printed non work related stuff, or not put 40 cents in the coffee jar?
Ever eaten a grape or cherry at the supermarket, without paying for it?
Ever guilty of theft by finding? This is where a household dumps some stuff on the street (we call it hard rubbsh), and neighbours (and anyone else)
go through these discards. This too is illegal and you can be charged.
Have you lived your entire life without once taking something that did not belong to you?
Do you really believe this woman should potentially go to prison for the whopping $2 + that essentially belonged to no-one?
So in the world we live in, this woman maybe goes to jail, and the bankers who caused a global recession/depression are awarded plum jobs in the
cabinets of Obama and Cameron.
Yes, that will teach her, won't it?
And what consequences do you reckon for such a heinous crime? Drawn and quartered, loss of a hand, or ship her off to Van Diemen's Land to the 'Women
Factory'. Obviously a telling off is far too lenient, and there are no jobs in the government for the likes of scum like her - you need to rip-off
billions, not chicken feed.
