This video came across my news feed and people are beyond divided in their opinions. How does a group of moms judge it?

In case the link fails, the facts I've gathered are that a 15 yo girl pocketed candy. 2 members of loss prevention chased, tackled, and detained her until the police arrived.

Can't see video. Can't see any reason to tackle 15 year old for stealing candy.

Overkill but maybe she won't do it again. When I worked retail I didn't get paid enough to care if people stole, lol. Especially a $1.00 candy bar.

She stole. Sheโ€™s a thief and she was treated as such. I do not feel sorry for her. I feel sorry for the store as most people get away with stealing. I feel sorry for myself and other customers who often end up paying a lot more for groceries due to theft. If this was my child I wouldnโ€™t change my tune. In fact, I would hope this would deter my child from ever stealing again!

I am as astonished that they would over react in this manner about a candy bar.

She's a thief. Two men didnt have to tackle her to the ground, they could have just held her until the police came

She starts off small, she sees hse can get away with it, she starts getting braver, starts stealing bigger things, next thing you know she's stealing cars, I say nip it in the bud right away.
