If she knew it was wrong she never should have started doing it in the first place. Once caught it is a little too late.

Walmart ts the worst thing that has happened to the world and to the USA. Take the Oreo money out of her pay and fire her. Is that too simple for them?

Ridiculous! Maybe she should attend one of the "how to get welfare" classes they offer so she doesn't have to steal. Maybe give her a decent wage instead.

It is ridiculous to charge her with a felony.

Sometimes I do not understand the way the system works. There are a lot of people that do such violent and evil things and end up in prison for only a few years. And then there are other people that cheat on their taxes or steal oreos or do something else that didn't result in a rape or murder and they get the book thrown at them.

Wow, is this charge heavy handed - a felony for being a junk food junkie? I could see if she was stealing furniture, or large ticket items, but cookies, and other assorted junk?

There are so many crimes that should be considered felonies but aren't and then we have things like this.
