Macy’s Ordered To Stop Detaining Suspected Shoplifters

A judge has ordered Macy’s to halt the practice of detaining suspected shoplifters within holding cells at their stores and releasing them into police custody upon payment of a fine, a controversial theft protocol known as civil recovery. What do you think?

“They’ll still follow me around the store, right? I love the attention.”

“No retail outlet should be judge, jury, your destination for quality housewares, and executioner.”

“At some point we’re going to have to ask ourselves why there are more people in American department store jails than in any other country.”
