VIDEO: Store Clerk Stands Up To Shoplifting Mob

June 16, 2014

(CBS) – Chicago police are investigating a bold and massive shoplifting scheme. They walk into a store like any other shopper, only they have no plans to pay. In fact, they grab what they want and suddenly take off. But as CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports, the thieves were not expecting a store employee to put up such a fight. A dozen or so people came to the Grand Crossing neighborhood K & G clothing store, but not in search of advertised bargains. They came to steal, as a pack, and in broad daylight. Surveillance video show a brazen robbery. The men and women bring their own shopping bags into the store and fill them up, then simply walk out of the store. The store is busy at the time and only one sales clerk catches on to what’s happening. He tries to stop one man at the door, and there’s a brief scuffle.

I use to work the night shift in a 7-11 in the early 1990s in Freeport Long Island NY which was right below Roosevelt an all black neighborhood, and they would do this to me all all all the time, this M.O. of "blatant shoplifting" They would walk in with large bags, even garbage bags and just steal steal and steal like they couldn't have a care in the world, like they had permission to steal, and I would immediately call the cops because I wasn't allowed to touch them - I guess because it's New York and my boss didn't want to get sued - and then they would walk casually and get away and the cops would show up 15 minutes laters ho hum, once again too late.

Honest people pay for their theft. It’s just built in to what we have to pay.

I would be perfectly fine if they were sent to Saudi Arabia for justice. If they had a hand cut off, I would be perfectly fine with that.

The company that runs 7-11’s say you can’t fight robbers. You’ll be fired if you try to protect company’s property.

It really feels like the same dozen people have been cloned millions of times and spread around the country.

You see the exact same thing expressed with the exact same attitude again and again.

Yeah I guess that’s the reason, but I could never understand how this guy made a profit. It was ridiculous, once or twice a week they would come in and ransack the place.
