If you saw someone shoplifting what would you do?

What if it was a mother shoplifting with her children in tow?

 Wow...I don't know-- I think if it was a mom with her kids, I'd probably look the other way...

I guess it depends on what she took ................... ??? I don't know, that's a touchy situation. I mean if I see her stealing diapers or food for the kids, I don't know.

tell someone at the service desk. I'm in America for crying out loud. we have PA and salvation army food pantries and soup kitchens you don't have to steal to feed your kid.

If I were in a position to do so, I would offer to give her some money. Only if she was stealing something for them.

Otherwise I would let someone working know what I saw.

I know... I'm not sure what I would do either. I originally posted just the first question. But then as I was thinking I wondered what I would do if it was a mother with children with her vs just a single person stealing. 

I don't think it is ok either way. But I would have to think twice if it was a mother..
