"IF" you owned a store or managed one you would think other-wise
You have NOTHING to lose by having your receipt checked. You aren't getting frisked or interrogated. You're not getting "hassled". You're not being detained. The problems that seem to arise from these situations come when self-important, lawsuit happy consumers cross up with poorly trained security ("please, please, PLEASE - give me a reason to sue you!!" - the worst kind of people IMO)...
It is the store's right and responsibility to protect their inventory.
So, how about this? If someone walks into a store, makes their way to the DVD players... picks up a BluRay player, and procedes out the front door - should LP just let them go?
Receipt checks are a colossal act of disrepect to a store's customers.
What you stand for is basically a police state.
You see a computer going out the door of course he paid for the thing...otherwise he would not be leaving with it
Even though it is not in a plastic bag...
