Response: Good for the security guard.
In the 80s I briefly worked for Bradlees a now defunct dept store chain (left to work for postal service...) Part of the training of being a dept. manager (hardware/paint) was hanging around with Security. We could see live video of people stealing and the security went out and made the pinch and brought them into the office, the videotape being evidence of the act. I forget what kind of penalty the offenders paid beyond being banned from the store but I think we had a police officer there and a woman with her kids was being arrested (brought into police station later). She started crying, waaah, here I am with my kid, what am I gonna do? The cop said “you should have thought about that before
The security guy also used to have a little fun—record on one of the cameras and hit pause, then the shoppers would move away. Play it back and it was liked Bewitched...people suddenly disappearing.
