162. while he should not have been bodyslammed for shoplifting...
what does the fact that he's a "grandpa" have to do with anything? i realize the poster doesn't make up these headlines but i'm tired of "grandmother" this, "grandfather" that

is an older person's body less fragile if they don't have grandchildren?

it should be disgrace to bodyslam ANY elder, not just "grandpa"

and of course it should equally be a disgrace to be shoplifting in the presence of one's grandchild, but the punishment shouldn't be corporal punishment -- altho i will give "grandpa" points for creativity in explaining why it was OK to stick the video game in his act that almost anyone witnessing it would have assumed to be a pretty bold theft

everyone involved here, except the child, is a tosser if you ask me

but, yeah, you don't beat "grandpa" unconscious for shoplifting, these cops need some re-training
