This is funny, because when that kid eventually grows up...
and shoplifts something all on her own, CNN will blame it on videogames and not on the idiot carcass of a mother that she has.

This isn't all that rare. People who regularly steal from stores (which she probably did) will often be aided by their children or have children present. They already steal, we shouldn't be surprised that they're not Parent of the Year candidates.

A particular shoplifter at a place I worked at used his two young girls as lookouts. It was heartbreaking, because they were just little girls. They were young enough that they probably didn't know any better, they were just helping their daddy.

Its so popular, its worth stealing now. Good job, Microsoft! xD

I misread the title an thought it was a Police Woman that did it, which actually would make the story noteworthy. But like the person above said shoplifters use their kids often so just a normal loser who is a mother doing it is nothing special.
