A video rental store decides they want to keep people from swiping movies off the shelves. The cost for the security system, perhaps with special video jackets and some alarm device at the front of the store, would have its own cost.

Now, the system to catch these thieves may cost a couple thousand, whereas the average month of movie theft may be around $100-$200.

This begs the question of whether you're trying to save money or stop people stealing from you? Is i really a financial matter or just the indignity of it all being 'taken advantage of'?
