on the local news they talked about an increase in people stealing news papers. they would pay for a single paper then when the machine opens, they take all of them. One vendor even video taped it with a hidden camera and showed dozens of people doing it. One woman was identified and arrested. some people think it is because of that new show extreme couponing that is encouraging people to take all the papers for the coupons. some people also behave as if it is not a big deal but the vendor who put up the camera pointed out people take so much that he is loosing profits and he pointed out his children have toe at too. I personally think it is stealing. Weather it is a dollar or a million dollars, theft is theft. I m more understanding if you are starving and desperate and steal food, or make a mistake, but the amount of people who justify doing these things. It is dishonest no matter how someone tries to justify it.
