Why would the police not press charges? A grocery store lot is not a public park equipped for camping. Why Va? My mom's family used to shower Bethelits with cash and food. Present Witnesses would help them. This is not credible.
If sensational stories such as this one are reported, I believe the credibility should be stronger than with a pizza topping story. What were the names? What is the exact location of the store? Which police jurisdiction was called? Who is the manage rof the grocery store?
Lawyers and journalists look to details to ascertain veracity. There is not vetting process for what can be osted here. We need to be vigilant and ask for details as a result. What would a New York Times editor ask?
How typical is this of Bethelies? Perhaps they are camping for fun. Strange that only certain forum members run into these situations. I lived my life, travel a wide geo. area and never come across such sensatoinal stories. The WTBTS is dramatic in itself. It doesn't need any help.
