only person I'm hurting no one, items are insured, I'm stealing from people who force 5 year old Chinese kids work for little to nothing

I don't think you understand how these things work. The cost of insurance increases as losses increase, and the retail cost of the items goes up as fixed costs to the business increase. You directly contribute to everyone else paying a higher price.

So those ma and pa stores you brag about stealing from also make their money off of Chinese slave labour?

[–]pancakesnboobies[S] -5 points-4 points ago

Yes, they get their items shipped just like every other store. if they're nice people, and don't have insurance, then no, I will not steal from them.

So you do research on your target to verify that they have insurance and stock only unethically produced Chinese-made goods before stealing from them?

[–]pancakesnboobies[S] -4 points-3 points ago

There store policies, are usually listen in the store. or use common sense, and or watch the news. things that say " made in china" are usually made in china.

[–]SFtheWolf 0 points1 point ago

Not everything made in China is made unethically.

Are you committing to the claim now that you only steal Chinese-made goods?

I'm pretty positive that "store policies" are about returns and codes of conduct, they're not putting their insurance policy up on display.

....Are you just seeing the word "policy" and assuming that's what it means?

[–]pancakesnboobies[S] -3 points-2 points ago

Not everything, but most items are, and most stores to put up their "lost item" policies, return policies, and theft policies.

[–]SFtheWolf 0 points1 point ago

Give me one single example of a store that puts up a lost item or theft policy which describes the details of their insurance coverage.
