Well that's crap. Lobby the politicians to change that? Hell, HSUS and Peta like getting attention, maybe we can finally use that to do some good by getting them to throw shitfits until they change the laws to make abuse of pets as illegal as abuse of livestock there.
Seriously, that's s**t. Even the tiniest stores around here have cameras, or at the very least fake cameras to freak people out. Hell, people get little cameras hooked to computers for their houses, there's no reason a store shouldn't have one.
I haven't ever stolen anything, and don't plan to. I'd prefer to stay out of trouble and not be banned from stores. I don't know why there'd be a $500 minimum. Theft is theft is theft. That's like saying stabbing a guy less than three times doesn't count as armed assault (or whatever crime it is).
No-one should have to see things like that because no-one should be doing it. At least you found her and not, say, someone's kid.
And people SHOULD be freaking out. An innocent, defenseless animal was stolen from her home and died a horrible, violent death for absolutely no reason. If enough people raise a stink about it, then maybe some other poor cat's life can be saved.
