A former Miss USA from Dallas was arrested this week on a shoplifting charge at a Target in Denton – accused of stealing beauty cream. Shannon Marketic, 39, was seen taking $86 worth of Olay Professional ProX skin treatment and two baby items, according to a manager at the Target in the 1800 block of Douth Loop 288.

She is a former miss USA. My bet would be not guilty. Although it could be by reason on insanity.

Not quite what I would expect for a former beauty queen’s mug shot.

Guilty... and my condolences to the man that has ended up with her. Does he know about her past?

Well ... there’s definite evidence that she would’ve had interest in the $86 worth of Olay products.

Shannon LaRhea Marketic (born January 14, 1971), is a beauty queen from Phoenix, Arizona who became Miss USA 1992. In 1997 she filed a lawsuit against a prince of the ruling family of Brunei, alleging that he had compelled her into performing sexual acts for guests at a party he organized.

Looking a little long in the tooth there, and it doesn’t look like it’s been a comfortable journey either. Guilty.

This isn't a young woman.

She is a few weeks shy of 40.

She knows right from wrong, and her former youth and present looks don't giver her a pass.

Why this is such a big story, however, is BS. If a fat woman named "Latisha" (even if she was a former "Miss" something) shoplifted, it would not make national news.

Tell me I am wrong.

Well it hasn't really made national news. It was reported in the Dallas Morning News because it happened in the Dallas area. But if fat Latisha had shoplifted some beauty products anywhere else I probably would have posted it on FR just for the comic value

The Olay, which she says rolled to the rear of her cart and missed being scanned by the cashier, couldn’t do anything about the current fatness of her face. I am leaning towards a ditziness defense and letting her off with, at worst, a slap on the wrist. I carry no purse and little items have sometimes gone unnoticed in my cart until I have paid for what I thought was my order, then returning them to the cart (when I check carefully that I am getting the items I bought) it has been “oops, forgot these, would you ring them up now” and the cashier has always rung them up and never given me grief.

Innocent if she invents a time machine.

Failing that, guilty.

I think it would be better to say she is a former Miss former USA. The country isn’t the same anymore and she was just looking for social justice...that’s all!

I am in New Jersey and I am reading about it.

That "Internet" thingy.

It is all national, and even international, news.

The CEO of Target (Gregg Steinhafel) is a very vocal conservative who has contributed to Michele Bachmann and other conservative candidates in MN. Politics aside, it’s a great store. You would do well to lose your snobbery and gain some deals there.

I was in the new, reasonably fancy Target store in Culver City and I witnessed a man putting (stuffing really) patio accessories into his black duffel bag. I could not believe my eyes and circled back to confirm the situation. Nobody stopped him from what I could tell.

The Target store delivers good value and is a welcome addition to the LA shopping scene where WalMart has been shut out by the unions. We have only one WalMart in LA - west of the 110 and south of the 101 - which is one of the largest population centers in the US. Thanks to the crooked LA pols, this sad example of a WM occupies a long abandoned Sears store on 3 levels with limited inventory (constant stock-outs), broken elevators and escalators with shiftless personnel (movement is imperceptible to the human eye).

I think there have been a lot of drugs and a lot of Twinkies in her life since that Miss USA shot was taken.

Justice Roberts (I heard) said the way to end racial discrimination in this nation is to stop discriminating based on race.

If it isn't a Snopes rumor, it should be true.

STOP discrimination!

Do you know why the "Groups" won't do it?

"Racism" is big business. Billions. Trillions actually. Too much money involved.

She had a bill of over $150 at the register and claims these items had rolled to be back of the cart under her purse which she missed while checking out and on the cell phone. So I’m not sure of her intentions in this case. Was it on purpose or was she just negligent in checking out?

She’s had other problems in the past with two DUI convictions.

That’s just your Target, then. Therefore, your charge that she is guilty just on the basis of choosing Target as a place to shop as you implied in post 4 is bogus. Stop maligning Target.

It’s not “my” Target and I’m not maligning anything, just stating facts. Until Target is the last store of its type, I am free to spend the Bigfoot kitty any place I choose.

She’s guilty as Hell by the way.

It is NOT a fact that Target does not allow the Salvation Army to ring their bells there as you alleged in your post 31. So, the Target store in your zip code might not permit it, but it is NOT a fact that applies to Target stores everywhere. Alleging otherwise is maligning Target, a great employer and a great place to shop.

Target stores in Western Washington State, that is a significant amount. Costs the Salvation Army dearly. Why would such a magnificent retailer purposefully hurt a charity if it is so grand? Like I said, no Bigfoot money gets spent at Target until they change their way. You haven’t addressed the support for the gay rights stuff they’re involved in. Family values company, my ass.
