A Chinese store owner was so tired of thieves that when he caught one, he tied her up and made her sit in the window with a humiliating sign around her neck.
Guo Hao, 52, whose store is in the city of Wenzhou, wrote on the cardboard sign: "I'm a thief, I deserve to be beaten," Capital Bay reported.
Hoa wanted to warn other shoplifters about stealing from his store so he took a photograph of the tearful and shamed thief, who he had made kneel and admit to her crime.
Other shoppers, instead of coming to the woman's aid, also took pictures until the police arrived, Capital Bay reported.
