Irrational Selfieshness

Danielle Saxton, 27, posted a “selfie” in what Kert Williams called “a very distinct leopard dress.” Several of her selfies spread rapidly, quickly reaching West Frankfort, Ill., police, who were able to identify her location from the background. Why did they care? Just a few hours before Saxton shared the pictures, Williams had seen a woman walking away from his store with the unsold merchandise — just like what Saxton was wearing in her pictures. “Her excuse was there was nobody in here,” Williams said. “We were in the back, working,” and she thought “she could just take it.” Saxton was arrested, but released on her own recognizance.
