The couple that stole the meat need help. Thats a shame. Maybe they need a food bank or food stamps etc. I would have given them some help and another chance.

SHERRY, SOME THING TELLS ME THAT THIS WASNT THE FIRST TIME THEY HAVE DONE THIS. JUST A GUESS BUT CHANCES ARE THEY SELL THE MEAT TO BUY DRUGS. AND I DONT THINK IT WAS GROUND MEAT AND HOT DOGS THAT WAS TAKEN.

yeah...I know what you mean Jaun. If they had no prior record I would have given them another chance and set them up with some food help. If they had a record for this type of thing I wouldn't...I'd hit them hard. Seems hard for me to imagine stealing food to sell when there are easier and better things people would want. Tough times and situations. I have no pitty for druggies though.
