... we estimate that its probably a core group of 30 people or so that steal most of it.
Does the "we" that does the estimating do their share of stealing too?

As PurpleDawn pointed out in Message 10, any busness can have a problem with employee theft, not just retail stores.
I had a supervisor tell me once that the most common thing employees steal is time. (Mind you, we were allowed to breathe on company time as long as it didn't interfere with our work.)

My original complaint still stands--I fear we have a problem with a national sense of entitlement at each others expense!
Well, if you worship individual initiative, you're gonna see behaviour that favors the individual instead of the group. Crime is just the ultimate expression of free enterprise.

I can't wait until you have to explain all that to Him. Boy is that going to be fun.
Your true colors are shining through. A real follower of Christ would speak up for her fellow man at the judgement, not gloat.

Get with the times. Everything is "e" nowadays, even e-judgment.
