We all have things we own that we are proud of – how would you feel if someone took your favourite thing from you? A lot of people think that stealing things, such as taking things from shops, doesn’t affect anyone. This is simply not true. Helping yourself to something that doesn’t belong to you is wrong, whether it’s taking something from someone’s house or a shop.
Everyone pays the price for stealing, it means that we all have to pay more when we go shopping, and it also means that small shops can go out of business, costing people their jobs.
Stealing from shops carries a maximum penalty of 7 years in prison, not a ‘petty’ amount of punishment.
