Heavy handed, IMHO.
Yes, several states now consider the “intent” - as evidenced by the foil in the backpack - to constitute burglary which is a felony rather than a misdemeanor theft if intent is not a factor.
I'd shoot to kill anyone I caught robbing me of anything. Now that's heavy handed.
This is Northern Minnesota next to Fargo, ND. They take law enforcement very seriously. And there’s essentially no crime.
Remember when New Orleans flooded, and there was looting of EVERYTHING?
Fargo had flooding, and there was exactly 1 (ONE!) burglary the whole time. No other crime whatsoever.
Those are good people up there.
The Hispanic surname pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the perp in comparison to the community. I’ll take bets he’s, ah, “Undocumented”.
Now, now, now.....since his surname is Ramirez, we have to be politically correct. It wasn’t shoplifting, it was an “undocumented purchase.”
