Stupid girl for leaving the register open! And stupid, stupid, stupid man for taking the money! He looks right at the security camera and shows all of us his total lack of integrity!

Give the guy a break. He was probably stealing to pay child support or to buy food for his family!

10:40 in the morning. Unless

10:40 in the morning. Unless they are a Chinese breakfast buffet there probably weren't any big bills in the register yet. Nonetheless, poor security, and he isn't terribly brilliant looking right at the camera. "I'll hide behind the bamboo. Nobody will see me." I'll bet he stole the 50 bucks for cab fare to get home and get his MENSA Application out of the mailbox.

The cashier should have to

The cashier should have to pay the $50 bucks. Put the thief in jail and keep him there.

Andywarhol - And that's why

Andywarhol - And that's why he was dining out in a restaurant, because he needed money to pay child support or food for his family? Why not try holding up a local bank? There's a lot more money to be had, and the risk of getting caught is the same! No, this was some ignorant, greedy B....D! More than likely, an ex-con by the looks of him.
