Washington Safeway store officials had to eat crow and apologize to the four-year old girl who was banned from their stores for shoplifting. She was apparently seen by a guard eating dried apricots from a package before she placed it back on the shelf. The guard who caught this dangerous criminal took the girl and her father to a break room and forced her to sign a statement detailing how she would never be allowed in the store again. Never mind that the four-year old couldn’t read. Or that she couldn’t possibly understand what was happening. Or that she was four years old. Safeway fired the guard and apologized to the girl and her family. Read about it here.

“A spokeswoman says while the shoplifting policies are there to protect customers, guards have to use common sense too.” (orlandosentinal.com)

Common sense, huh? Ya’ Think?!
