    Do you do it?
    Do you think it justifies as a form of protest?

    I personally do it and am not ashamed, fucking prices are outrageous. I don't do it on small family-owned groceries, though...Life's as hard for them as it is for us, I'd feel bad if I did it. :/

    i think it doesnt matter. major companies probably lose more revenue in damaged goods then from theft. besides, they steal from us with their 1,000% + mark up on goods that they get from exploited labor all over the world. i wish i could shoplift but i already have a record so fuck that i don't want to go to jail.

    well, down here there's this saying, 'ladrão que rouba ladrão tem 100 anos de perdão' which means something like 'a robber who steals from another robber as 100 years of forgiveness'.

    they steal from us so it's only fair we steal from them too. maybe it isn't the most effective way but, hey, we're still helping...

    about going to jail, i doubt you will just from taking a couple of cookies, chips, juice, beer and some bread or something. :p
    our justice system is different from yours though, you accumulate sentences or something along those lines isn't it?

    I do it sometimes and feel no remorse. Sometimes I just wanna eat some junk food, but I'm not giving my money to the bastards that make (most of) it. And I jack lighters sometimes, though I've got like 5 Bic's now and I don't smoke anything too often anymore so I've got no reason to steal...

    I don't care if people steal from walmart and places like that. I personally don't do it. I usually don't go many places without my son and i think getting busted with my kid is one thing I could live without. I've been tempted to bring a sharpie to Walmart (I get dragged around with people alot) and casually stroll by racks of clothes "accidentally" ruining them.

    i have always stolen shit when i was a little younger, i guess i outgrew that habit. but what was always fun is glueing stuff to the racks or removing the price tags and replacing them with "50% off" tags. it doesn't help any cause but it's loads of fun watching when someone gets really frustrated

    yeah something like that. within the walls of the most capitalist society in the world, theft is one of the most frowned upon and heavily sentenced crimes. armed robbery is 15 years to life in prison depending on the situation. but yeah you can still get arrested for small stuff too. not always, but i'd rather not take my chances (i'm 20 years old now, so i can accumulate a record now). the most common is spending the night in city jail for stealing food or low priced items, and if you can't get bailed out then you can spend a couple of more days in there. plus community service hours after you are tried in court.

    I tend to steal from malls, multinationals and the like. Books from the school's library, clothing from stores, and whatever I can get my hands on. I do it for fun rather than need.

    I always thought I was just weird and the only one to steal books from the library. When i was a teenager I used to do shit like go to the supermarket and steal batteries for my portable cd player and put the dead batteries back in the package. Or shove a can of whipped cream up the sleeve of my leather jacket and walk around
    trying to huff the gas (which never worked but whipped cream is good). Then put the empty can back in the case.

    Haha, once when i was younger I lifted this sweet bottle from this douche kid because it had lizards on it and i wanted to make it into a bong. Turned out to be a Sobe bottle and they were everywhere anyway.

    As kid punks we had a specuul after-school-sport: Stealing the latest RAF-wanted posters from the local police station - fuck, I was caught two times by the cops. The first time I got away with a few slaps in the face, the second time it took almost half an hour of serious hitting and kicking... I left black and blue and the cops would not open the main entry door when I was with the people "reporting a stolen bicycle" afterwards... :'(
