    I have never commented on one of these, but I have to wonder what she stole. She is in a sleeveless tank top and was walk- ing (so you know it wasn’t a TV or a big ticket item) and it was cold. I don’t condone theft, but for some reason I am feeling like maybe a little compassion might have been a good choice. Maybe I’m totally off on this, who knows!

    She has been searched. Then they take her picture. They don’t give them all of their clothes to put back on for the picture. They will give her a jumpsuit to put on after this. Why all the pity? Because she won’t open her eyes? Hopefully she is mortified enough that she will never do this again! What she did was wrong. Praying she gets her life in order.

    She’s in a tank top because she has to remove outerwear when arrested to show tattoos, scars etc. and she probably had the stolen items under
    her coat!
