Cynthia Nixon Denounces Anti-Shoplifting Laws: ‘Stealing Basic Necessities’

By  Paul Bois

Actress and failed New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon denounced anti-shoplifting laws, arguing that people who steal necessities in order to survive should not be prosecuted.

In a recent tweet, Nixon decried a New York City CVS for locking up merchandise due to an uptick in theft.

“The CVS on my corner has started locking up basic items like clothing detergent. As so many families can’t make ends meet right now, I can’t imagine thinking that the way to solve the problem of people stealing basic necessities out of desperation is to prosecute them,” she tweeted.
