Sandwich arrest stirs debate over eating in stores

The Safeway grocery store on Beretainia is seen, Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011, in Honolulu. A Honolulu couple, the Leszczynskis, were arrested last week after eating a $5 sandwich at Safeway and forgetting to pay for it with the rest of their groceries. The couple's 2-year-old daugher was taken away by Child Welfare Services after the arrest. (AP Photo/Marco Garcia)
