I'm Shocked!

This morning is the first time I've seen an article in the FdL Distorter that actually asks a really good question: Woman arrested for allegedly stealing baby food
Fond du Lac police responded to Pick 'n Save, 760 W. Johnson St., on Oct. 20 after a store employee observed a 20-year-old woman leaving the store with unpaid merchandise. Police searched the wo-man's purse and found five cans of Enfamil baby formula valued at $69.45. The large purse had little in it, and police suspected it was intended for hiding stolen items, according to a police report. The store employee told police that he saw the woman with the baby formula under other items in her grocery basket. When the woman checked out, the baby formula was gone. The woman could face charges of retail theft and obstructing police. A Dec. 5 court date has been set.
So, the question is - If desperate, would you steal to feed your children?
