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.
