They're not going to find the killer and even if they did, he'd just get let go.

This is why a sane society doesn’t just take the Abbie Hoffman/Crimethinc line about shoplifting - that repeat shoplifting is just a victimless expropriation from capitalists. Repeat shoplifting opens the door to something as simple as a shove happening. A shove can lead to a fatal injury even with a healthy person if they fall on the spine the wrong way. But disproportionately, the victim will be someone vulnerable working a job like that, like this elderly man or perhaps a pregnant woman.

All I can say is they don’t get within arm reach of me. Can’t blame others for not thinking about it that way but hopefully, we all do.
