  • Crime wave at Walmart..

    What is it about Walmart?

    Chaos at Walmart stores across the country has gotten so bad that the mayhem is spilling out into parking lots, and the amount of calls to police has left many departments stretched thin.
    Ashlyne Rogers, 20, was at an Arkansas Walmart shopping for a DVD two years ago when 25-year-old Corey Mosley took a swing at her with a baseball bat, striking her in the head.
    "All of a sudden, I hear a 'swoosh' and I collapsed on the floor," she told Inside Edition's Lisa Guerrero. "I had no idea what had happened. I just remember being hurtled to the floor, not being able to move because I was in so much shock and so much pain."
    The attacker was caught and later sentenced to three years in prison.
    “You don't expect something like that to happen to you," she said. "For it to happen one time, it makes you think it could happen a second time because there is not going to be anyone there to save you."
    Last year in Jacksonville, Florida, there were 5,298 calls involving 15 Walmart stores.
    Since 2015, police in Chicopee, Massachusetts, have received 1,294 calls about alleged incidents at the town's only Walmart.
    Chicopee Officer Mike Wilk said patrol cars had to be repositioned in the city to accommodate the numerous calls. “It is kinda shocking when you realize on average that once or twice police are at a Walmart a day, especially in our city.”

    The one where I live just ceased being a 24-hour Walmart, and the reason given was "rampant theft".

    Who goes to that place between midnight and 6am, anyway?
    Bad people, apparently.

      In our burg the parking lots are the scenes of endless drama.

      Apparently if you are poor, regardless of race, creed, or gender preference, the place you confront your SO about an affair is the Wal Mart parking lot.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

              And since they stopped drug testing their employees, me and one of the city cops who's section borders mine just do 'drive throughs'. Roll the windows down and cruise through the parking lot until you smell the telltale signs of employees on break. It's like shooting fish in a barrel.

                        If the guy is Scottish, you better hope that he is wearing underwear under that kilt.

                        In short, the explosion of violence and other stupidity is just the result of the increasing moral decay in society as more and more people are being seduced by the devil.

                          Back in the day the place for that kind of drama was the parking lot at White Castle.

                            I do. I work midnight shift and hitting the Walmart on the way home at 4am is very convenient.

                              We don't have a 24hr wallyworld but I wish we did. Sometimes I need to get some fishing/hunting supplies and they are about the last American store that carries them.
