Are smokers being picked on?

And in Waterloo, yes we are back to Waterloo a woman who left the hospital with a heart monitor still attached was charged with theft. Apparently she wasn't fond of the no smoking policy. If she was following doctor's orders, and not intending to permanently deprive the hospital of the monitor, then how could that be a theft? Allegedly the heart monitor has a value of $1,000, but there is not market for selling such an item. And with the hospital's pricing structure the $1,000 valuation is doubtful at best. This lady needs a good criminal lawyer.
