Theft should never be taken lightly.
And if you can’t resonate with that statement, just picture yourself as the victim and picture this: someone just stole your most prized possession.
How would you feel?
While your initial expression might be something like this:
It will probably turn into something like this soon enough:
But you get the gist; theft isn’t to be taken lightly.
Not even when it’s committed by youths.
In fact, it’s precisely because youths did it, that we should crack down on it all the more harder.
Because you know what they say.
Spare the rod, spoil the child.
The incident had occurred at Block 472 Tampines Street 44 on 8 December: a group of youths were caught on camera taking bottled drinks from a closed mini-mart.
Stomper Velavan, who happened to be the owner of the mini-mart in question, shared the video with Stomp to “warn other shop owners in the area”.
“They took about 10 bottles of soft drinks from my shop,” the Stomper said over the phone.
Apparently, the youths arrived at the store around 2:40 a.m.
“We were closed that day due to a lack of manpower, usually we are open 24 hours,” he added.
Since then, he has been “hoping to encounter the youths to advise and warn them.”
“I didn’t want to report this to the police because they seem like they are still students,” he said.

Netizens have since aired their thoughts on the matter.
Some questioned the youths’ actions.
And one suggested a possible reason behind it.
Stealing is wrong, no matter the circumstance. And if you’re in the midst of it…
Please, stop before it gets any worse.
That’s the only advice I can give you, young’un.
