Let's see how this works. Billy steals the candy bar. Cindy was on another aisle, but found out and reported it to mommy who decides not to tell the store employees. Johnny is sitting at home, trusting that everyone who went to the store is honest. So we 1) slap Billy on the wrist, 2) Kill mommy for being a bad parent, 3) forbid Cindy from possessing any candy for life, retroactive to birth, and 4) Make Johnny pay for the stolen candy bar and every other candy bar in the store for an entire year. Sounds equitable (apparently, according to Marybeth Hicks).
