“If store security states that someone took something, and then by the time we apprehend them they don’t have the property, then there’s really nothing we can do because it’s their word against the (suspect),” Hall said.


What a strange story. :-?

Wouldn't installing security cameras "prove" it, and give the police enough evidence to arrest them? :-?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Well with the make up and wigs on I bet they look different than their natural appearence.
Also, if you don't catch them red handed you really can't prove anything.

Yeah, I read about this earlier today.

And I thought Katrina was bad. Those poor people in New Orleans.

Say... Isn't Pablo from New Orleans?

The red handed part is what I was getting at. Video footage works just fine down here in Texas to convict people, so why not there? :-?

I know they would look quite a bit different, but experts could still match them up on computers, so I just don't see the problem with a lack of evidence if they would install security cameras that are taping everything.

Keep a 12-gauge behind the counter and this wouldn't be near as much of a problem. B-)
