What is it with the senior citizens shoplifting? It has been an ever growing phenomenon over the past few years and judging from the number of reports we get from the media they are not very good at it. I implore everyone to sit down with their grandparents and have a talk with them that stealing is bad! ;)

JT please be more specific with this story. What was this spray? Was the suspect also 'unemployed DODO' or just lost his marbles. Hope that cop wasn't sprayed with perfume, because this will cause a huge trouble to cop if he was married. 'HONESTLY JT THIS IS VERY POOR STORY, WITHOUT NECK AND TAIL.'
