I think we all know the "source" of those goods on E. 14th. The shoplifting isn't great, but it bothers me less than what looks like raiding the community fridge a couple blocks south. To be clear: it's okay to take what you need for the day from the fridge and decide to sell it (or whatever!) instead of eating it, but very uncool to clear it out so others in need can't get any.
