I feel shoprite should have a heart. They are one of he biggest shopping markets in rockland county Yes, you should not steal. However, if the manager spoke with this man and it was found he needed it to feed his baby. Then let him go, maybe they could have made an arrangement for the man to come back and give back to shoprite. To arrest someone for stealing baby formula is a little desperate reminds of the depresion era. Are they going to place him on a chain gang.

I'm sending this article to the child health services of Rockland. Assuming he is dad, no child's parent in Rockland County should feel so desperate he needs to food to feed his child. I hope there is a food program for him and that the government agencies will help him and the child, not just penalize him.
