Title is misleading. She was arrested for trying to steal the ipads not just simply trying to buy them with food stamps.

Seriously though they need to educate these people in need, not just give them food stamps and expect that to solve everything.

not for liquor though. In many neighborhoods, the corner liquor store is the only place with "groceries". Food desert.

There was recently a bust in Utah by a store that was scamming foodstamps. 5-6 people arrested

You can't really believe the bolded portion. I know about 2-3 years ago every local Arab-owned corner store in my city but 2 were shut down for illegally trading out cash for food stamps at 50 cents on the dollar.
