Rodney Hide writes a column about supermarkets' inability to defend their property from shoplifters because of asinine assault laws.
I will make a prediction about the comments that will ensue.
At least some will resemble the following:
It is a tragedy that a man has to steal to feed his family. And it's your politics, Rodney, that caused mass unemployment and poverty in this country.After all, the left has been excusing theft for decades.
Never mind the small matter of job opportunities in Christchurch and the surrounding regions. The fact that Canterbury has the lowest unemployment rate in NZ is just inconvenient.
