write a essay on the harmful effects of shoplifting.
Hi there, I was caught stealing from a small business in Mammoth California. I have to do 80 hours of community service and need to do an essay for the courts which is around 3 pages long, on the harmful effects of shoplifting. Shedding light on both how it affects the person who stealing and how they get addicted and then how it affects the economy and the shop you steal from- just as some ideas. Please feel free to talk about any other points such as Consumers will have to pay higher prices for products to compensate for the loss of revenue from shoplifted products, Security measures may have to be increased at stores, creating a less inviting environment for customers and decreasing the ability of a shop to connect with customers, It can lead to loss of community jobs if the store is forced to shut down, The loss of local and state tax revenue can lead to higher taxes for everyone, There is an added load to police and court systems when dealing with shoplifters, There can be a financial and emotional strain on families who have members who are prosecuted with shoplifting. Perhaps also a paragraph on how I regret it, and how its effected my self esteem how others see me, and how I feel so bad, and I was clearly addicted to the high even though I could afford to buy the items. Thank you please ensure it stays on track as the courts topic was “write a essay on the harmful effects of shoplifting”.
