#1 Retailers bear burden of 'No prosecute' Policy.

Only until they can accurately calculate the costs of shrinkage, then make up the prices. Just another 'hidden tax' the honest consumer must pay. It's only fair.

#2 Have the shops considered the proven track record of mafia legbreakers? Nothing adds that personal touch like Hired Goons. I'm quite sure shoplifting won't be a problem after the first few 'examples' turn up. Floating in a pool of cement.

#3 These people are not shoplifters. They are just people making an undocumented withdrawal from inventory.

Of course, if you don't prosecute shoplifters, they will become more and more bold. Eventually, people will just start walking out with the merchandise. I mean, why pay when you can just take it, and no one can do anything?

#4 There is also a limit on how much retailers can pass along as their costs. If it gets to high, then a black or grey market appears to replace the retail stores. Then when the gimme's try to rob a black market location you'll see disappearances.

#5 I don't understand. How does a county DA declare a constitutional directive/provision 'off-limits' ? 'Petty larceny' I believe it's called. Are lawyers going to face action for taking up cases against shoplifters ? If the cop catches a thief in the act, how does the DA disallow normal prosecution ? Can somebody walking out with goods not be detained by the store and handed to cops ? How does it work ?

Also, I found this , which explains the 'why'.
