    Why do news outlets give criminals like this a VOICE?! She stole from a business and then wondered why she was handcuffed? How about she and her husband take responsibilty for their actions instead of blaming someone else. Just another reason to be cynical of everything the news reports.

    This is a moral issue u have no food for your children nd can barely provide a roof over their heads what do u do??? Im not saying they were right in what they did but I am saying that until you have been in that situation you have no right to judge ANYONE

    Maybe, if they can't feed 1 child, they shouldn't be having anymore of them! Also, there are numerous " services" out there they could have asked for help from, none would deny a child and a baby food!!
