Shame on you
Stealing something from the local store might not seem like a horrible crime to some people, but it’s a crime nonetheless, and it should have repercussions. This small town decided that whenever someone steals something, they should walk around town with a sign reading, “I am a thief.”
It might seem like a harsh punishment to some, but we think they have it easy. The real punishment, in this case, is that in a small town everyone known each other, and so wearing this sign on the street might cause a lot of shame in a town where everyone knows your name.
