Here we go. Who is watching the rest of the town when the officers are at the Jail with people that steal less than $50.00 in merchandise? Wal Mart has a genterated loss margine. They will still make a lot, A LOT of money even if they loose items. Of course when the officers are away the rats will play. Just one more question. What about the rest of the businesses? Will they get the same treatment? Nothing so far. Oh well.

The whole police department

The whole police department does not take them to jail, only one officer will trasport them. They do not stay there with them.
