    Thumbs up Mother makes daughter hold sign that says 'I steal'

    SILVERTHORNE "I steal in school, not study."


    That's the sign 14-year-old Stacia Worthington held up outside a gas station during rush hour Tuesday morning. Stacia's mother, Desiree, works at the gas station and made the sign after she caught her daughter stealing $500 from a classmate in school.

    "She got three days suspension. The first day was kind of easy for her, the second day she went out to the landfill and did some recycling for her county, and today she's going to learn humility," said Desiree Worthington.

    Onlookers had different opinions about Desiree's decision.

    "There's other forms of punishment I think without humiliating the girl in front of the entire Summit County. I think it's disgusting," one said.(BOO FUCKING HOO!)

    "I think the mother knows her child the best," said another.

    Silverthorne resident Bruce Miller says he thinks the punishment fit the crime.

    "She's probably not having any fun, but you know, it's a lesson she probably needs and congratulations to her parents for helping her out here," he said.

    As for what Stacia thinks, Desiree said, "Right now she's a little angry with me."

    Desiree did keep an eye on Stacia, let her come inside every hour to warm up and brought her muffins and hot chocolate.

    The kid's lucky she wasn't charged with a felony! I've got absolutely no problem with this punishment.

    But why the hell did a kid have $500 in school in the first place?

    This has happened a few other times the last few years. I say good on them.

    I have no sympathy for her. Good for the mother.

    Mom deserves a hand for dealing with this, but yeah, why did a kid have $500 at school? That must be one hell of a school lunch!
