    I hope the Police Officer is okay.

    I think everyone should have to go through a staffed checkout not only will it help to cut down on losses from stores it will also create much needed retail jobs.

    The self service checkouts and hand held scanners help to increase the amout of shop lifting in stores. Which does not help when so many retailers are struggling to survive.

    I hope the Police Officer makes a full recovery.
