Crime Pays

Shoplifter awarded $12,000 in damages:

An admitted shoplifter has been awarded $12,000 for injuries he suffered during an altercation with a security guard and a store manager…
The store’s lawyer argued that Baines was the author of his own misfortune; that when he stole the razors he should have expected to get stopped, and that Baines shouldn’t have resisted when the security guard grabbed him.
In the end, B.C. Supreme Court Justice William Ehrcke ruled Baines did not deserve to be kicked or punched, and assessed damages at $15,000.
