Thank you, Quazi!
Point being...this is all just silliness. The stores understand the rules. This is an option for some of the 1.5 million shoplifters to avoid law enforcement. People that believe they are innocent maintain their rights.
Now, back to the original post- are you so meek and obedient that you'd follow the security schmuck who confronted you in the aisle of the store to an office and believe them when they said you were guilty?
He who knows the least obeys the best.
