Police ask users to identify a man who stole the diapers, but everyone offers to pay for them for him
Stealing is always wrong, it's true, but what should you do when you are desperate and the living conditions of your children depend only and exclusively on you? Asking for help should be the first option, but it is not always possible to resolve certain issues in time, before taking a misstep. The story of a man who needed to buy nappies and wet wipes for his two young children, but who apparently had no money to pay for them, is a concrete example. The man, despite having tried to pay for the products with two different cards, was unsuccessful in his mission, but he could not leave his children without diapers ...
The man came out of the mall with diapers and wipes, despite not having paid for them, unleashing the ire of the police. Fortunately, however, the spread of this story has set in motion an incredible chain of solidarity to help the man in need.
A man walked into a supermarket with his two young children, looking for nappies and wipes. At the time of payment, the man had only these products in his cart and it was quite evident that they were necessary and urgent purchases for his children. The man tried to pay, but his card was refused. After this first refusal, the man left the supermarket without buying anything, taking his children away. Soon after, he came back alone, with a new card, probably from some relative or friend waiting for him outside. This second attempt also didn't work, the card was rejected. At that point, the man managed to walk out of the shop with the diapers. The police immediately shared the photos of the man, after viewing the footage of the security cameras and, after posting them on Facebook, asked users to report this man.
The response of the web, however, was very different from what the police expected ...
Instead of reporting him to the authorities, many people have expressed their willingness to pay for diapers and wipes for that man: "When you find out about him, let me know so I can pay for his diapers" or even "I'll gladly cover his debt! I'm not saying it's right, but the man obviously stole diapers for his kids and to do it like this means that he really needed them…".
In short, no one wants to justify the fact that the man stole, but a user wrote the following comment to the police: "... if this man hadn't taken the diapers, you would have arrested him for negligence!". What do you think?
