    As long as he did not try them on first, we take a dim view of that in Florida. :D

    I’ll never understand the concept of work, it suggests I don’t already deserve everything I want.

    8 previous convictions for shoplifting, how many children does he have? Get a job, like the rest of us, in the civilized world. Thall shall not steal, a commandment, not a suggestion!!! 1 Corinthians 6:9 ~ 9Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.…

    Well then Tammy, let’s be sure and bail him out and tell him to never do this again. Wait, I’m sorry. You said he might have been STEALING for his kids. Never mind, my bad.
    My CHILD needs new tires for his vehicle. Maybe Rowland’s Tires will leave some outside for me to get tonight. For my child remember!!

    “He maybe was getting them for his kids for school?”

    Maybe not
    Don’t see where it would matter.
    Perhaps he could try paying for what other people made, bought, had for sale.
    Thieves and vandals tend to be lowlifes.
    Multiple convictions certainly suggest such.

    David for honest sock purchases, better people
