• Staten Island mall shames shoplifters with display tech

Shoplifters convicted of committing crimes within the Staten Island Mall now have a consequence beyond fines and jail time — public shaming.

According to an article on silive.com, mugshots of the mall's worst repeat shoplifters are rotating on the screens of 11 video kiosks located throughout the mall. No names accompany the photos, only text that reads, "Want to be famous? Shoplift in this mall and you could have your face right here. Stealing from any merchant at the Staten Island Mall is a crime. You will be prosecuted."

District Attorney Daniel Donovan said in the article that the mugshots will have plenty of screen time before the end of the holiday season.

"Two million times, people will see their photographs, and realize, this is part of their punishment for what they've done," he said.
