New Jersey football players
rewarded after paying for
items at store with no clerk

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/29/2013 6:36:36 AM

These football players scored a touchdown without setting foot on the field. Four members of the William Paterson University football team in New Jersey each scored $50 gift cards after surveillance cameras captured them at a Wayne store paying for batteries and sunglasses, even though no employees were around. Buddy´s Small Lots was actually closed Sunday night. But the lock malfunctioned and the lights were on, making it appear as though it was open. Buddy´s management got a call from police that there had been a break-in, but upon arrival, nothing was missing from the store, News 12 New Jersey

Now there are four fine young men. Their families should be proud of them for doing the right thing. It was very nice of the owner for rewarding them. I salute you guys - you are going to be very good fathers some day.

I´m glad everyone here is so uplifted by this story. Color me skeptical. My local paper ran a longer story on this headlined "Good little deed pays big."
The four players went into a store that was closed and got batteries and an extension cord. There were surveillance cameras. Did they notice the surveillance cameras and then start calling out for a clerk and waving dollar bills at the camera? They left $5 and even sales tax (poor darlings can´t figure real well; they left double the amount of New Jersey´s sales tax). Then they went into the Rite-Aid next door to tell them what they had done. (There was an open Rite-Aid right next door!) Were they covering their tracks once they saw the surveillance cameras? Why didn´t they just go in to the obviously open Rite-Aid next door to get their batteries and extension cord? BTW, the owner of the store was so happy she gave them each a $50 gift card. Their little "honest" escapade necessitated a police investigation, netted them each $50 and cost the store $200. I´m not impressed. Sorry.

Are things so bad that when something right and normal happens it´s news?

Used to be that stores left a cigar box outside along with the racks of newspapers and magazines. You dropped the dough in the box or made change for yourself. (even kids knew how)

Thank heavens that the young men did the right thing and also had left before police arrived. This could have been a tragedy. #15, They sure were smart potential burglars to cover their tracks that way (sarcasm intended). Walk into an ´open´, lighted store, realize there are cameras (duh) and change their plans and act well instead of bolting into a possible police response. Why not congratulate their wisdom, upbringing, and probably coaching?

Forgive the double post, but my antennae remain up. Once the young men realized the store was closed, they could have gone next door to the open Rite-Aid to get their batteries. And if they were really good kids who had just done the "right thing," they could have declined the $50 gift cards they each got.

But, #20, if we are to accept your post at #15, the kids, having noticed the cameras, could hardly leave the store and simply go next door. Maybe they saw the cameras and maybe they didn´t. It really doesn´t matter. They left money and they hadn´t broken in.

The whole thing sounded like a totally fake PR stunt to me. I wouldn´t be surprised to find out that the store owner is in on it, along with others in the media.

Amazing how much attention its getting.

Go ahead and call me naive, but I think this is more the norm than most of you believe. I know a lot of ´good´ young kids that would have behaved as these young men did. We don´t hear good news much anymore though. These young men aren´t heroes nor should they be made out to be, role models, yes, definnitely. They´re good kids. I agree with a previous poster - they should have declined the gift cards.

1889: What the White House
Easter Egg Roll Looked Like

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

The car was taken from the home of Lucia Lozada in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday as the mother of the twin boys and a 1-year-old buckled in the back seat stood just a few feet from the vehicle.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority.

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
