In the UK there is a common policy of banning delinquent children from the
center of town (the shopping area). Not only do the get banned from the
sweet shop (or the record store which is a more likely target) but from all
the other major shops.
Also such leniancy only applies to children. Adults who steal from stores get
treated very differently.
