1. What do you think the letter writer meant when he applied the label “heroic” to the apparent theft?
2. Should we be more aggressive in pursuing corporate fraud? Explain.
A shopper wrote a letter to the editor explaining how he felt after observing what appeared to be a theft:
At Wal-Mart I saw a person try to put an item in their jacket. At first I thought this person was a jerk. . . . But after I returned home, I became convinced that it was OK to steal. . . . When I compare the theft of a $15 item to the grand larceny by corporate America, which ran Enron into the ground, which reaps record oil profits . . . which occupies the seats of government and takes bribes, I now see the act of stealing a small gift . . . as heroic.
