Have you ever left a store without paying for an item? Even by mistake? I remember doing this with a 12-pack of soda that was under my carriage so I went back and paid for it. I just felt like such a dope. In 2022 intentional stealing is not only common, it's somewhat encouraged.

New York State Police are hoping that you can help them identify a man, they say, stole items from Walmart on Oneonta. Just walked out the front door with several items in his carriage. Why are some saying "so what" and "let him go"?
