Caught at Lucky Moose

I witnessed the saddest sight at the Lucky Moose supermarket. An older lady who'd been caught red-handed with some unpaid goods was being held in what seemed like vice-grips by two ladies who seemed to be the store-keepers. The older lady cried and cried and apologized profusely but the ladies yelled and screamed at the the older lady and the crowd, telling everyone the cost of theft. A policeman showed up and took the lot into a side room as the older lady scared and crying tried repeatedly to get up. It was the saddest thing I've seen in a long time. It made me sad for our society. Food should be free. We should be sharing and growing food side-by-side but everything has a price tag.
