Dirty Rotten Thief
From London's Daily Mail:
“A two-year-old girl was branded a thief by Woolworths staff after she helped herself to a pic 'n' mix sweet during a shopping trip. Isra Khan was with her mother Aishah, 23, when she grabbed the 20p false tooth-shaped sweet from a shelf and popped it into her mouth. But within moments a member of staff at the store in Blackburn, Lancashire had stormed over to Mrs Khan and, in front of stunned customers, said: 'That's theft.'”
Finally I say! It’s time to call a spade a spade, to let egalitarianism reign supreme. Whether it be a 2-year old or a gun-wielding terrorist, a criminal should be labeled as such, regardless of age. Besides, if a toddler can legally get married in Arkansas, why can’t they be publicly vilified as a thief too?
