Shoplifters Will Be Prostituted! by Ryan Quinn Flanagan


The sign
in the window
was adamant.

Seems this place
of business
ran a side business
in some other

Putting the many
shoplifters to work.

Painted up
and in heels.

What a great way
to create a whole
new revenue

While the store
was closed for the night
and many were still
