Last month we blogged about Cape Cod’s Granny McStickyfingers, who was caught on tape stealing money from the tip jar at the Lobster Trap restaurant:
We quickly identified her as Mary Gelsthorpe of Bourne:
And as it turns out she serves on the Bourne Open Space Committee:
Well the cops knew it was her so she was summonsed to Falmouth District Court. But Granny McStickyfingers don’t play. She gangsta like that. So if 5-0 wanted her, they could come and get some. And that’s exactly what they did:
Granny McStickyfingers don’t play!! That mugshot is ELECTRIC!!
And I don’t mean that in the figurative sense. She looks like she just stuck a fork in her toaster. Who wore it better?
Funny part is that it’s been well over a month since we last heard from her and she still hasn’t taken down any comments on her Facebook Wall of Shame:
But of course the feelz patrol had to chime in with their 2 cents:
Oh calm your clit Bonnie Lou. We’re shaming her because that’s exactly what she deserves. She didn’t steal from Target, she stole directly out of a tip jar for minimum wage workers. And she’s done it at other businesses in town. What gives us the right to judge her? Oh, I dunno – freedom. Free will. The Internet. Murica. Stuff like that.
The bottom line is that public shaming works, and a great way to avoid it is to just obey the law. Or you could just keep blaming law abiding people for exercising their First Amendment rights. Whatever you feel is more productve.
