Saw a mom get arrested at a restaurant today :( WDYT?

I was at a restaurant having lunch. A few tables away a young mom came in and sat down. Her and the kids weren't there for long- it seems like they ordered, ate for a few minutes and then asked for it to be wrapped up. She told the waitress she was going to the bathroom and took the kids. The little boy came back for the food and they started running out to the car. One of the servers blocked them into their spot while the police were called.

In the end, the police arrested the woman because the owner (maybe manager?) was insisting they press charges. I know she was wrong, but she was sobbing and it broke my heart to watch her as they took her from her babies. She was saying she did it cause they were hungry. 

What do you think? If you were the owner, would you have pressed charges?

No, I probably would not have pressed charges.

Absolutely I would.  Having children is not. or should not be, a get out of jail free card. Of course she was sobbing. She got freaking caught.

Nope, and I would have let her take the food too... And probably offered a job... I'm a bit of a bleeding heart...

I agree

Quoting Bigmetalchicken:

That really sucks, but she is essentially stealing. I don't know what I would do.
If it was me, I would have asked to talk to the manager and said I have no money, but my children are so hungry, can I do something so my kids can have a meal?

I don't know but I probalby would have paid for their meals long before the cops showed up.

Tough call. Would I do it? Hell no. But there may be a history you don't kno about.
