Once again, we’re forced to wonder why, in a world where pretty much every retail business is filled to the gills with surveillance equipment and social media like Facebook exists, why anyone would risk the embarrassment of getting caught on video, then having those images shown all over their friends’ and maybe family’s phones, tablets and computers  is beyond us.
