Grandma did What???

Shoppers in the Detroit, Michigan area have been pick pocketed by a group of hat wearing grannies. "The Mad Hatters" are responsible for half a million dollars worth of stolen merchandise. Their disguise? Hats! The video explains that the hats probably distract others from identifying them.

What do you think of the Mad Hatters? Are they original? Do they remind you of your grandmother? If they are arrested, what kind of punishment should they get? Can you think of a more clever disguise?

I think the Mad Hatters are original and funny. My grandmothers are very sweet and I could never picture them stealing anything. If they get arrested, they should be charged the same as other robbers. I would've picked a mask rather than a hat because it's harder to identify someone that way.

Lauren...I think this concept is rather funny. It is very unique to think of only wearing hats. However, I would much rather wear black masks or something that would more thoroughly disguise my face. If they are arrested they should be punished just like any other criminal would be. I definitely would not expect my grandmother to steal from others in the mall.

Robbie says.. I think its pretty funny. Yes what they are doing is wrong steeling stuff but other than that I think thats funny. I dont know what they will do to them but they should do something.

Tee: I think the Mad Hatters are pretty unusual and original, of course. I think that these women will be arrested and probably put in jail. I think a more clever disguise would be a pair of thick-rimmed glasses and a mustache.

Kristin says... The Mad Hatters remind me nothing of my grandmother. My grandma is so sweet and she would never steal from someone. If they get arrested they should receive the same punishment anyone else would.

Ernie says.... I think what the people are doing is pretty stupid. They should get in big trouble. I dont care if they wear wigs that wouldnt be funny.

sheron says... i think its funny and pretty smart because usually someone would wear a mask and masks are more likely to be worn in a robbery than a hat so it makes it look very innocent.

I think the Man Hatters are very original. My grandmother has her ways but I couldn’t picture her doing anything like this. If they get caught I have no clue what kind of punishment they should get.

Ashley says... I think the mad hatters is funny. For agrandma to disguise themsleve in hats and steal stuff is rather funny. You would expect an old grandma to to steal something like that! They are wise to get around but they will get caught soon. They are very sneaky to plan this out. I dont get why they want to do this bacuse they have half their life left to liove and they will probably be spending the rest in prision when caught. I could never see my grandma doing that at all.

LaKendra... I think that the whole situation is kind of funny. No one really expects for older women to go around stealing from people. The concept of the hats is very simple but effective. When someone wears a very outstanding hat, it usually does distract you away from their face. If these women ever are caught I think that they should get the same punishment as anyone else would.

Matt: It is very original, I'll give them that. They do not remind me of my grandmother though, my grandmother is a tired person. I'm expecting that they will get caught very soon.

Chris says… I think it’s funny and very clever that they used their hat to steal from the store. I also thing they shouldn’t get punished that bad cause there old women but still serve time. A cleverer disguise would have to be dressing up like someone else and framing that person.

Get the bat signal ready. Is the Joker next? Or maybe Clayface? Maybe Robin will help. This is strange.

Reminds me of my grandma... If I was a little old lady I would the same. Not judging a book by its cover works both ways you know. I hope they don't get caught, because it's people's fault to think that little old ladies don't do bad things! I admire the women for making people think twice.

I think it was crazy that old people are stealing stuff. They always looked to me as innocent old people. They don't remind me of my grandmother. I think they'd get a jail sentence just as anyone else would. I would disguise as an alien.

I think that now it wouldn't suprise me who will steal from anywhere. No, they do not remind me of my grandmother. I think they should get the same punishment as any other person that have done what they are doing. I won't tell...lol
