Some cities are passing their own laws in order to combat an epidemic of brazen organized retail thefts across the country that have led to some stores shutting down.

In one example from the King Soopers grocery store in Brighton, Colorado, two thieves were caught on video on Monday loading up a grocery cart with detergent and other high-price items before running for the exit.

The video shows a security guard and one bystander trying to stop the couple, but a black male fights back and they escape after tossing all their ill-gotten goods into a car.
