Just Steal Cheap Things

So apparently this guy stole a DVD player in China but realized he didn’t grab the remote. He got caught a month later when he went back for the remote. Sure the guy is and idiot, but what is most astonishing is that the police dropped the charges and let the man go because the value of the DVD player wasn’t worth their time to deal with the prosecution.

The DVD player was £100. That’s like $150! I can buy one at Walmart for $30. What DVD player in China costs $150? They make them there. They should be $5 tops. If crimes this small are not worth punishing, sign me up for a life of petty crime in China. I just have to remember not to grab the PS3. They might punish me then.
