A Houston-area woman was shopping in a Walmart when she witnessed three guys shoplift three cases of beer.
She brought it to the cashier's attention (she was checking out) but the cashier said there was nothing anyone could do about it.
(If any of you recall, Walmart fired three security guards in one of their Utah stores because the guards had the audacity to actually fight back against a shoplifter who pulled a gun and pointed it at them.)
Small wonder, eh? What's to stop anyone from waltzing in a Walmart and walking out with a big-screen television or a shopping cart full of beer? Just tell them (Walmart) you might have a gun and if they interfere with you, they'll be the ones fired and in trouble, not you.
Anyhow, back to Houston. The shopper's name is Monique Lawless and she is a safety engineer for Boeing, and on that day, she just got flat fed up. Big time.
She chased the suspected Katrina sewage (three brothers, by the way, all with the first name of Sylvester believe it or not) out of the store and when they got in their car and attempted to drive away, she jumped on the hood and then started stomping on the windshield.
Here's the story from Fox News.
The three pieces of shit, who are brothers, were in the Brazoria County Jail shortly thereafter facing charges of felony evading arrest and aggravated robbery. Sylvester Andre Thompson, 21; Sylvester Durlentren Thompson, 21; and Sylvester Primitivo Thompson, 19.
I read some comments on several of the published stories from "civilized" folks who claimed she was just stupid. Stupid to risk her life over a few cases of beer. Stupid to chase them out. Blah blah blah.
These folks don't get it--and never will. So I'll explain it to them:
We're FED UP! We're fed up with punks and thugs and goons doing whatever they DAMN WELL PLEASE inside of decent, civilized society. They do this BECAUSE of the people with attitudes of "a case of beer isn't worth risking your life over."
IT AIN'T THE BEER! It's the fact that such LAWLESSNESS runs amok and we LET IT RUN AMOK. Ms. Lawless witnessed a crime, reported it, and was told "nothing anybody can do."
Well guess what? She chased them, it all got caught on security cameras, the police got off their asses for once and chased the pukes down and arrested them.
I'd say Ms. Lawless accomplished something that day. She accomplished a helluva lot more than the do-nothings sitting in front of a computer condemning her.
My hat's off to you, Monique Lawless.
