So what's wrong with those things that go NYARR NYARR NYARR when you walk out with unbought things? Do people cut off the tags or something?

At my local Best Buy, you can walk up to a not-in-use cash register and run the inventory-control tag on the item over the plate in the counter that the cashier uses to deactivate said tag. Or you get a similar device of your own and just casually rub the item against your pants leg (pretending to rub dust off it or something) before you discreetly stick it in the bag you brought in in your pocket.

Or you could slip a friendly cashier $20 to neutralize the tag on but "forget" to charge you for a $60 video game. I had a cashier do that in a drug store -- he rang up the other small purchases, asked me for half the price of the case of beer I was buying, and stuck that money in his pocket.

And that reminds me of the friend who worked at McDonald's, and had a co-worker who would, for an extra $20, drop a baggie of the marijuana in your Happy Meal. Thus making it a Very Happy Meal, I suppose. Apparently, he was caught because whenever a manager was around, he'd have to stick the extra money in the cash drawer and didn't always have a chance to recover it, so there was regularly an overage of some multiple of $20 in the drawer at the end of the day.

this joke will probably only make sense to people who smoke, but when i worked at mcdumbass many years ago, the chicken nugget happy meal would always show up on the screen as "happynug"

They line the tophats with almuminum foil, so the reader doesn't detect the electronic nyarrnyarrnyarr device.

most readers i've seen are only ~180cm high, so unless you're kupo, it should be alright.

Presumably these receipt-checkers only check what's in your bag, though, and I'd have thought it'd be much easier to sneak something small out, presumably concealed about your person somewhere. I can't imagine it's that easy to sneak a large item into your carrier bag after making a purchase. I mean, I'm sure it makes some sort of sense to pay these guys, else they wouldn't do it, but it seems strange to me. I guess it depends partially on the layout of the shop. If the cash register isn't near the exit, then I suppose there is sufficient opportunity for foul play.
