I wonder if Kohl's security people has their own desk in our detective squad?

Was the photographer out sick the day she was being booked? It's strange how some mug shots end up on this website and not others. How convenient.

Yes, stealing is wrong, but I get irked when charges are pressed for petty crimes like this when one considers all the individuals in finance & goverment who got away with impoloding our economy and in effect creating an even larger underclass in our society. In all likilihood, this individual stole because she has an emotional problem and not of need, but others steal because they're desperate, and from a desperation not of their own making.
