  1. Decisions Decisions… Be honest and a normal citizen and spend the money on necessities / groceries or….. steal and still have money to buy the new Jordan’s for me and my kids….

  2. Is this the same person who pepper sprayed the J. C. Penney store the other day? Maybe this is the new way to shoplift. Spray the place, grab what you want and get out.
