It's all been leading up to this, and by "this," I mean "nothing remotely conclusive whatsoever." I gave up hope of there being any determination of guilt or innocence a couple episodes ago, when a Best Buy shoplifter's 15-year-old recollection that she doesn't remember seeing any payphones in the parking lot was presented as a smoking gun. I've shoplifted from stores in my youth, and for a period I shoplifted from the same store repeatedly. I have no idea whether that store had a payphone out front because I couldn't have given a crap! I was trying to run away with CDs in my jacket. I never thought to stop and make some phone calls.
