I know people can be charged in possession of stolen property but surely there is a statue on destruction of stolen property!!! IMHO the moment this unbalanced person takes that cart and moves it that he is now in "Possession of Stolen Property" moving stolen property not to return it as he should be but to destroy that.
Shopping carts 35 years ago when I was working at Co-Op Bottle Shop paying my way through University were costing the company $295.99! The Store Manager announced the price of $295.00 each so that if we see one on the way to work to return it! I added the $.99 as all prices have a $.99 on the end LOL, I am sure he was rounding down.....
My point is 30 * $295.99 = $8879.70 now if someone uplifts that price to todays real value I believe we have a value of a nice nearly new car.... If someone steals said car and destroys it correct me if I am wrong is Grand Thief Auto! Some of the carts should be identified by store managers... why has no charges been filed?????
State Rep. Tom Brower (D) is going around town smashing homeless people's shopping carts. Hopefully this is a symbolic reference to his future as a politician. What a madman.
"It's time to put down the sledgehammer. The point that I was trying to make has been made," Brower (D-Ala Moana, Waikiki) told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Tuesday. "Now that the issue of shopping carts is on our minds, the question is are we going to move forward and try to solve it or just let it become status quo."
"I'm not trying to attack the homeless," Brower said. "I'm trying to attack the issue of cleanliness, but some people interpreted as an attack on the homeless.
