I think the store owners should be permitted to go to the homes of these thieves and take whatever they want and as much as they can carry.

The real issue is that these "teens" live in a world of hand-outs. If there were still jobs in America as there used to be, these "teens" could see their fathers go to work and make an honest living. They would learn what the rest of us have learned.

Instead, generations of politicians give hand-outs, destroy actual families, and make fathers useless appendages who dance around in rap videos in hyper-masculinized ways that only emphasize their powerlessness.

These kids think that not having something is being denied a rightful handout.

The system is rotten to the core. Real jobs teach respect and hardwork.

What a shame. I feel so bad for that store owner.

I wonder if she'll press charges.

Damn Chinese. First they take over the whole of South China Sea, and now this

Good thing my TV protected me from my inherent evil racist tendencies by blurring those children out...

Pure loss for that store owner. She will likely have to raise prices some to make up for the losses.

I think people know what I'm saying, and I think they are ignoring my point.

This story belongs in Current Events or something. There's no politics or other controversies associated with it in its present state.

Do you also propose giving 14-16 year old kids the right to vote and stuff like that? No, because they're minors. Their brains aren't fully developed, so that's why the juvenile justice system exists.

Obviously that doesn't matter to you, but I explained why their faces are blurred out and it totally has to do with the the fact that they're minors and nothing else.

And thats why the little darlings get away with it-they know there is very little to no consequences
