Lawyer Sues Macy’s for Detaining Muslim Who Stole Earrings


If Juweria Khalid is the best that Doug Wigdor has to offer, his class action lawsuit against Macy’s is in big trouble.

Juweria Khalid admits she put the earrings in her purse, but claimed that “she was planning to pay for them”. And now she found a lawyer to sue Macy’s over it.

Sorry, no. Once you put store property in your purse, you’ve stolen it. Especially a pair of $100 earrings. Certainly at that point you lose any and all presumption of innocence.

Khalid’s only trump card is that she had a miscarriage later, which she blames on Macy’s for stopping her after they caught her. The moral of the story is probably that you shouldn’t do stressful things like shoplift expensive jewelery while 8 months pregnant.

Or, more likely, the miscarriage had nothing to do with it. Muslim women often have higher miscarriage rates for different reasons. One of them is cousin marriages which are common among Muslims.

This latest case, according to Doug Wigdor of Wigdor, LLC., who is heading up a larger federal civil case with now more than a dozen plaintiffs, only illustrates further Macy’s consistent targeting of innocent customers.

On what planet is a woman who admits she put $100 earrings in her purse, innocent?

“They’re preying on the most innocent people on our society. People of color, often people from out of the country, often people who don’t speak English or speak English well,” said Wigdor.

The most innocent people in our society don’t walk around with store property in their pursue. Juweria Khalid wasn’t Forrest Gump. She knew you don’t do that. Not if you’re planning on paying for them.

And if the loss prevention officers stopped her, it was because they saw her do it.

WPIX’s ridiculously pro-shoplifting story from Narmeen Choudhury, a Bangladeshi Muslim, wasn’t the first time that Choudhury has run ridiculous Islamophobia pieces on WPIX.

Maybe WPIX should actually check Choudhury’s work on Muslims because she has demonstrated that she will run straight Islamic propaganda pieces.

Despite Narmeen Choudhury’s biased piece, the comments from WPIX readers and viewers were much more rational.

Mike · She put the earrings in her purse? Ok. Justifiable detention, end of story.

peggy · exactly. every crook has a story.

Eileen · She is lucky they didnt chop her hand off like they would have done in her country!

Mare · You do not put items in your purse. She was stealing and if she wasn’t they had every right to detain her.

Carol · You can’t put things in your purse and say I’ll pay later. How does the store know if you will pay or not. I don’t believe her. But she will get a nice some of money from this because she is muslim.

Nora · How could you even cover this story representing this woman as innocent??!? She put the earrings in her purse. This is a classic shoplifter move. Trust me, she was not going to pay for them in the 7th floor as she claimed. As someone who worked in retail for many years, I’m disgusted that this woman is now suing Macy’s for loss prevention doing thier job…, and doing it right. These types of issues are why our country is in thr state it’s in. I’m disgusted that she was made out to look innocent . Please!

    My only comment (for now…) is that I once was shopping at a Wal-Mart (or some place similar), at the end of a winter, and I was wearing a long, semi-winter jacket. As I shopped the store, looking for something minor (thus, I did not need a cart or a basket), I passed the battery aisle, and remembered that I needed some “AAA” batteries for something. As I was already carrying something in one hand (shampoo, or something-or-other), I unconsciously put the batteries in my coat pocket, so I could use that now-free hand to later take what I had really come to the store for (milk? chips?).

    Later, when I was approaching the checkout lane with all my desired goods in hand, I suddenly recalled that I had batteries in my pocket. I hastily placed my carried items on the rolling counter, then took the batteries out of my pocket and placed them on the counter as well, while sheepishly telling the cashier that I had ALMOST accidentally walked out with unpaid batteries in my coat pocket.

    So, it can happen. But her circumstances sound a bit different than mine (not to mention $100.00 earrings are a bit more valuable than $4.00 batteries).

      It can but given that she is trying to use her muslim statis probably not.Mo wrote the book on lying and theft I wouldn’t bet on it.

      I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t have sued the store for detaining you.

      • Douglas J. Bender

        True, true. But I might have been so embarrassed that I never shopped there again, because I would think the employees would be whispering to themselves, (“There he is, the shoplifter who almost got away with it”).

    concealing merch is not allowed in stores. in general, they sometimes watch the person, get them on the way out. then there is no way the customer can say they were planning to pay for the items. she wasnt treated any differenty than any other shop lifter.

    The lawyer does not care for the crime or justice, he cares for the money, especially if it’s potentially large. And a side effect, or a bonus to him perhaps, is that he might be the last one to get beheaded by Islam. Or maybe not since stealing warrants chopping off hands, this lawyer apparently violated Sharia law and he probably is already on Islam’s attack list. It’s obvious that no matter what dhimmis do, Islam will be bad for their health.


      “The lawyer does not care for the crime or justice, he cares for the money”

      Don’t they all?

      That’s why there are lawyer jokes.

        “What’s the difference between this woman and her lawyer?”
        “The lawyer’s theft is legal!”


    The thief is smart.

    Safer to steal from Macy’s in the US.

    No so in in Saudi Arabia.

    who couldn’t see this one coming?

    “The moral of the story is probably that you shouldn’t do stressful things like shoplift expensive jewelery while 8 months pregnant” – Daniel Greenfield.

    The moral of the story is, never detain a pregnant Muslim for any reason… even if she is a thief, or a terrorist. That would be Islamophobic.

    Church Avenue in Brooklyn is filled with Bangladeshi. Once my husband and I watched a kid pick up an item from a counter, the mother said something in her language and the kid put the item in her bag. We were still watching her but she was unaware she was making sure no one watched her. Later near the cash she paid for the items she had in hand and when the transaction was completed she started to move to the exit. Then my husband stopped her and told her that she did not pay for the item that was in the bag. She pretended she was no aware of its presence in her bag and said that the kid must have put it in her bag. The kid looked confused and was looking at the mother. She returned the item to the cashier and left hurriedly. The store ignored it. Coming from a country where sivaval of the fittest is a way of life and no law and order in place people bring in that culture of lying and stealing and live the same life style. Muslims walk around with their garb pretending that they are morally superior but they are not. Stealing from kaffur is not a sin for them. Wait and see what happens when they take over. The west has no clue who they are. I strongly believe that the shop lifter did what she did. I work in retail and have witnessed people taking items out of the store hiding things in the burkha. I have caught them.
