Stephen: 7-Eleven gives teen shoplifter food instead of calling the cops

An Ohio 7-Eleven owner caught a customer stealing, but instead of calling the cops, he gave the teen food. CNN reports that Jitendra “Jay” Singh observed a young man trying to steal items from the store and confronted him. “He said, ‘I’m hungry, and I’m doing it for my younger brother,'” Singh tells WTVG in Toledo. Singh gave the teen pizza, sausages and sandwiches, rather than just snacks. “It’s not going to make any difference to me if I give him some food because we sell a lot of food,” Singh explains. “But if he goes to jail he’s definitely not going to do anything good in life.” Singh’s wife Neera agreed with her husband’s actions, saying, “We are part of the community, and we have to help the community.”
