A shocked storeowner tells how
he was faced with a wide-eyed, un-
concerned youth whom he had
just apprehended. "He just look-
ed at me innocently and said,
'Everybody on my floor does it.'
The same kid had a $10 bill in
his pocket and what he took was
worth something like 29 cents."
Many of those who do not shop-
lift, and this still appears to be a
large, majority of customers, are
not particularly concerned that
their peers do steal.
Says one, "I guess the only rea-
son I don't steal is fear, I'd be
sure to give myself away." S a y s
another, "I wouldn't do it my-
self, I'd feel guilty, but I'm not
going to tell anyone else what to
do. It would really amount to a

the belief that there is a signi-
ficantly less visible "moral im-
perative" than in past genera-
tidns. In many cases, they blame
One local owner emphasizes the
problem. "I called up the parent
of a young kid I'd caught shop-
lifting - the father was a pro-
fessor - and I'asked him to come
down and pick up his son."
"He went through the s a m e
arguments his son did - first he
denied it was possible and finally
after a long argument which got
progressively hostile, he conclud-
ed resignedly, 'Oh he's a naughty
boy, he needs a spanking.'"
The essay written to the mer-
chant who requires them from
those he apprehends often reveal
a strong parental influence. j
One letter for instance, is writ-

son were bemoaning the growing

A second factor which appears
to contribute to shoplifting is the
growing impersonality of busi-
ness. The potential pilferer w h o
cannot see that anyone is being
hurt by his actions or who thinks
that the things he takes will sure-
ly not be missed, is much more
likely to indulge.
Surprisingly enough, a great
number of those who pilfer seem
unconcerned with the thought of
being caught. Few appear to fear
the legal consequences, clinging to
the belief that the crime is petty.
And many agree that fear of the
consequences would make them
less adept and more obvious.
Those who do fear the conse-
quences of shoplifting are often
concerned with the parental reac-
tion. One particularly carefree
type admits that if caught, "I'd
probably shit." As to his parents'
reaction if he was caught: "They'd
probably shit too."
Another particularly prolific
shoplifter boasts of his take. "Look
around the room", he says, sur-
veying a plethora of inflatable
pillows, a shoebox full of casette
tapes, a carton of records ("I only
stole half") and assorted candles
(Stanger's is my favorite)."
"You can't be afraid of being
caught," he explains. "Besides,
what could happen? They'd fine
me and put me on probation. So
it might cost me $150. I've stolen
a hell of a lot more than that.
"I'm not too worried about be-
ing arrested," he admits, "I al-
ways wanted to see what jail
was like anyway." His roommates

The same young man concludes
by saying, "I'm sure sory I shop-
lifted in your stor but I sure can't}
not wright 1,000 words,"
Many shoplifters consider the
act in a broader framework.
"I am a big enough person to
admit I was wrong to rip off from
the store" writes one young phil-
osopher. "But I am also honest
enough to say I'm not feeling bad
about it and my conscience isn't
going to bother me for the rest of
Regardless of such enlightened
views, shoplifting continues in an
abundance of ingenious ways.

store conspired with a friend to

cheap clothing purchase.The clerk
I then wrote her friend a receipt
and stuffed her package with a
bonus of three blouses, two dresses
and a couple of expensive scarves.
Another enterprising thief wan-
dered into a huge discount store
and came upon a stack of unused
customer receipts at an untended
salescounter. He grabbed a hand-
ful and filled one out with pertin-
ent information for the purchase
of an amplifier and two speakers.
At the loading area, he pre-
sented the gratuitous and obliv-
ious clerk with the receipt and

Each shoplifter has his own
unique and often boastful story
to tell. One recently lifted a file
cabinet from the Michigan Un-
ion. Another walked out of a local
record store, unnoticed with a
box of 17 new records. Adjectives
describing pilferers r a n g e from
vacuous, careless and oblivious to
intense, skilled and guilty.
But the most interesting shop-
lifter provides continued proof
that it is impossible to accurately
categorize motivation and intent.
"I never shoplifted much," ex-
plains one woman, "but I did have
one idiosyncrasy. Whenever I was
feeling really down, like worthless;
or depressed, I would go into a
big store and steal a.really sexy
pair of underwear. It is always
thrilling, exciting, not in a sexual
way but instead kind of exhiliarat-
"It inevitably made me feel bet-
ter. My psychiatrist told me that

sical relationship I'd stop steal-
ing. I hadn't thought about it un-

The fund-raisers are hoping to

the end of this week.
"Every contribution is a vote

the fund raising committee says.

THIRD WARD DEMOCRAT FOR COUNCIL
DEAR TH IRD WARD VOTER,
The election of a councilman and mayor on Monday will have an important effect on the quality of
life in our neighborhood and in Ann Arbor as a whole. The choices are clear: will we return to the
time in which business interests and landlords control city government? Or will we continue the ad-
vances made by Bob Harris, Nick Kazarinoff, and the Democratic majority in the last two years.
Tenants' Rights legislation, environmental measures, and a critical look at new housing develop-
ments can all disappear. Only last Monday, the Republicans managed to postpone action on an ordi-
nance that will require news buildings to make provision for the handicapped as they anticipate a
"new council" that will ignore the needs of "special interest groups."
When Republican candidates speak of the spirit of bygone days, their meaning is all too clear. They
opposed the ordinance by which the possession of marijuana was reduced to a misdemeanor and will
do all they can to see that people are charged under the state law that m a k e s such possession a
felony. They happily recall the days before the hiring of the grievance officer made at least some of
the hassles between citizens and municipal employees a matter of common knowledge. They have
promised to "review minutely" to determine whether to "retain, modify, or eliminate" the Human
TFhe boot Chats all work... and fun! It's the Workboot, of course..
and the hottest thing this season! It was copied from the construction worker's
