Sudden Death: Walmart

| 3 Comments

The Black Friday shopping weekend apparently took a tragic turn early Sunday morning when an alleged shoplifter died while being apprehended by employees and a contract security officer outside a Lithonia Walmart.

Two associates who helped catch and subdue the suspect before police arrived have been placed on leave; the security officer who police say may have placed the suspected thief in a choke hold, is no longer working for Walmart. Read the rest and see the video here.

  1. Personally I feel it is a case of manhandling which can be filed against Walmart management. When the coroner finalized his/her findings it would be up to the DA to twarrant a suit against the culprits in Walmart even if they were fired. Indeed, stealing an item(s) from a supermart is unjustified by death and the US law must hold its justice

  2. “the security officer who police say may have placed the suspected thief in a choke hold, is no longer working for Walmart”

    THIS SAYS IT ALL!

    I’m sick and tired of Walmart getting bashed for being an honest company that makes a profit (I know… they sell Chinese merchandise), that gives people a chance to work (if they don’t like minimum wage, they can find employment elsewhere!) and has taken (to their credit) advantage of the free enterprise system!
    If I open a donut shop across from Winchell’s and put them out of business it’s probably because I have a better product and offer it for less money!

    • While at the same time they openly discriminate women and minorities from moving up in the company. This, as you are well aware of, is highly illegal.
