"The owners of this business have another agenda that they're working on here, making a political statement, making an example of my client," Jaffe continued.

I see nothing wrong with making an example of these rotten people stealing from small businesses. Name, shame and sue them.

So this person has the money and time to hire an attorney and instead steals stuff worth $300?

What has happened is it has become totally acceptable to do this, people read the news, they're aware there are no consequences. People wonder why they should pay for stuff, if other people aren't? This person absolutely didn't need whatever items she took. She has a freakin lawyer.

I think stealing anything below 1k is considered as a misdemeanor law is killing the bay. Lower the goddamn limit to 100 or something.

There should be consequences for thievery.

They should also include local govt as defendants. Govt is abetting the crime with their non-interfering that’s violation of 1983 code. It’s responsibility of govt to protect individual and businesses.

Bet dollars to donuts that the thief is actually wealthy and steals frequently from boutiques and stores.
