I mean, force everyone into self check outs and oopsie something may have accidentally fallen into my bag that I didnt pay for.

Remember people. If you see somebody stealing food, you didn't.

Let’s be honest here. The Gazette and media in general loves to blow things out of proportion. People who shoplift have always been doing it
