    Lottery hoax causes riot at Ohio coat store - Yahoo! News

    Just because the woman was lying doesn't mean that stealing is acceptable.

    No, only in Ohio. Ignorant people like that make me embarrased to be from Ohio... and we have SO MANY ignorant people here.

    Sounds like a super crazy attention whore.

    It sucks that the store got trashed though, surely people would just go, 'Oh, its not for free? Oh well,.' rather then going batshit insane and looting.

    Take a good, long think about this.

    There's the true face of humanity. Every one of the people who stole anyway after they learned they weren't going to get treated is out there, walking around, thinking what they did was somehow justified.

    Now wonder, how many more people like that are walking around out there, every day, one tiny little excuse away?

    Pleasant dreams.

    I'm with you. I'm from Ohio, and there's PLENTY of ignorant people in Dublin. :redface2: 

    Did they mention which Burlington Coat Factory this riot took place? There's one near me that's next to some small condos and a Chuck-E-Cheese's off of Sawmill Rd.

    EDIT: WBNS-TV? Crap, that's CBS Channel 10 where I am!

    I think everyone has their price, a point at which they would be willing to go against a law or moral standard. It's truly disturbing to find that so many people will steal shit because they thought they were going to get it for free. I could kind of understand it if the store had made some sort of error, but it was just a random woman. I like to think I'd have said "That's a nice offer. Can I see the money before I start picking out my new TV?"

    Score another one for the human race!

    The woman obviously has problems, and needs help... or is the ultimate attention whore. It is the mob that really shocks me... well, sadly it doesn't really shock me. Why is it all of a sudden ok to take something you have not purchased for nothing?

    Wow, what a messed up sense of entitlement those people had...


    Sadly it's pretty common on the internet with pirating and whatnot, and it's also pretty common in real life where people abuse store policies (specially with returns) to get what they want, but to go so far as to outright walk out of a store with something that wasn't paid for because some random lady said she would buy it for you and you're mad she was lying. Yikes >_>

    It's the whole mob mentality thing. When you have such a large group of pissed off people, something bad will always happen.

    Wow... just... wow. This woman claims to have the money to pay people's purchases at some coat store, only for everyone to learn she's lying and they just go on a freaking riot and steal all of these clothes?

    I am ashamed to live in a country where this crazy, stupid shit happens...
