Well Done, Jackie!

You stood by and watched several adult males and at least one female attack two pre-teens. Bravo.
I smell shenanigans. Mostly because I doubt that people would have stood and around simply watched this happen, with the girls crying and whimpering. I think Jackie is exaggerating just a wee bit.
Shoplifting is a crime. The guards had no way of knowing what they stole or what else the girls would have had about their person, hence the holding of the arms while the FEMALE greeter searched them. After being a teacher in the public schools for several years, I am no longer shocked by the things kids will do and/or carry, including guns, mace and knives.
If the story you are telling has even a grain of truth in it, then perhaps the guards were a bit over the top in their handling of the situation, but tell me, would you be saying the same thing if the shoplifters had been teenage boys instead of girls? Bit of a double standard there.
