Ice Cream product tampering

Ok so I am sure you have seen the latest fad going around as if Tide Pods weren't bad enough now they are fucking with our food. The latest rash of taking Ice Cream off the shelves and licking it and putting it back and of course video recording it and I just saw a video of some punk opening an Arizona Ice Tea container and spitting in it and returning it to the shelf. It's all fun and games until one of these assholes are put in the slam. I really think they need to make an example out of them like how bout 5 years mandatory prison for product tampering no plea deals that would put a stop to this shit.

Definitely a good start to tackling the problem of prison overcrowding.

And what do you suggest? Tell them to stop it or we’ll say stop it in a more aggressive tone?

Hemlock Flavor Ice Cream. That will stop it.

Thank god for tamper seals. Every product should have something like that.

I always check the lids on jars etc before they go in my supermarket trolley, if they can be depressed then it's a no go.

Petty criminals aren't usually very bright, however they usually understand that you need to try and cover your tracks. Filming your crime is another level of dumb.

Saw an article where Blue Bell, and other ice cream manufacturers, say the process they use to fill and close their product provides a tamper evident seal.

They fill the carton, cover it, then freeze the product upside-down. This "bonds" the ice cream to the lid. Apparently, if the "seal" has been broken, it should be evident.

The initial folks that did this should be prosecuted, and if convicted, sentenced to probation and some form of odious community service. Quite simply, the girl is a minor, and didn't really understand the gravity of the situation. I suspect we ALL did dumb shit when we were kids...and some of it, most certainly, put others in harm's way.

Copy-cats should be thrown in prison.

Well, if Texans consider 17 year olds adults, then I think it is quite reasonable to think someone only a year younger would know better.

16 is not a child.

You're right. Legally 16 year olds are children, but realistically, they live in this world between adult and child. They do stupid things, without thinking them through. Add the pressure that social media creates, and you have the potential for stupid things like this.

Let's face it, did this girl cause actual harm? No, she didn't. Was there a potential for harm? Yes, but not really. More of an ick factor than anything else.

Gonna toss her in prison for 20 years for that?

Good point - the time should fit the crime.

I guess what I'm saying is, if she was only slightly older (17), your average Texan would agree she deserves the female equivalent of the Rodney Hulin treatment:

Apples and oranges. Arson vs. tampering. Come on.

I have no problem at all when treating a minor as an adult, when that minor has acted like an adult. But, this minor has acted like a stupid minor. In fact, even if she was in her early 20's, I would suggest

But, like I said, the copy cats should be hammered. Only the first one gets a pass.

5 years in prison for licking ice cream? Seriously? 6 months probation or 48 hours community service at worst is what these people deserve. Its just stupid teenagers being stupid teenagers, no need to ruin their lives for something like this.

That's a poor way of sealing it. It means customers aren't likely to notice it until they have gotten home, in which case the seal might be worthless if it has been sitting in a hot car for just a few minutes. Seals need to be evident in the shop without having to open it.
