    I love how they say "suspected" of stealing.. when the video shows her grab it, stick it under her coat, and walk off. :P

    I'd just state outright that she stole it. If she has a problem with that, she's perfectly free to step forward and sue me for lying. See how far that gets.

      @Angry Bill We've got video evidence of her walking off with charity donations an incontrovertible proof that she's scum, but heaven forbid we tarnish her reputation.
