Wal-Mart Crime report September 2013

Rate: 2 Flag


In 2006 Wake Up Wal-Mart did a study, "Is Wal-Mart Safe?" based on incidents in 2004, (PDF) about crime at Wal-Mart which showed that it increased when Wal-Marts opened up and that crime was higher at Wal-Mart than at other retailers. Since then Wal-Mart Shootings began compliling a list of gun related incidents at Wal-Mart and demonstrated that they have a large number of them, including on average more than one shooting per week somewhere in the country. I also added my own review about why I think that Wal-Mart policies have been contributing to higher crime in a blog, Wal-Mart high crime rate continues uninvestigaterd and have provided additional information under the author tag Walmart Crime Watch. Stacy Mitchell has also compiled a list of other studies about Wal-Mart and how they impact society, Key Studies on Big-Box Retail & Independent Business. To the best of my knowledge Wal-Mart has done as little as they seem to get away with, often relying on rhetoric that isn't backed up with action, when it comes to addressing any of their critics concerns, including crime. The following are a list of incidents that occurred in September 2013. According to the "Is Wal-Mart Safe?" the average store in their sampling had 250 incidents per year, indicating that these are only a fraction of the crime reports at Wal-Mart, and presumably, the ones most likely to make the news on the internet nationwide. To minimize redundancy most gun related incidents will only be one lines, since they have been highlighted by Wal-Mart Shootings; some of the other more relevant incidents may have additional summations.



There have been at least seven bomb threats during the month; and two of the articles about them have mentioned more which haven’t been reported here. They don’t report these nationwide any more than they report the shooting incidents although they are much more common than most people realize. There has also been a bomb threat at a school that was allegedly made because a janitor didn’t get a free gift certificate which was given to the teachers.

This isn’t the only example where Wal-Mart has been getting involved in the local education system and it might raise conflict of interest issues. Their involvement is often portrayed as charitable, however it may come at a higher cost than many people realize. If local schools are indebted to Wal-Mart many of them may hesitate to criticize them as many that have also received money from oil interests haven’t taught children about environmental destruction. Also it gives Wal-Mart an unfair advantage over competition and it is clear from many of the stories that Wal-Mart has much more support from politicians and business interest than they do from local communities who are constantly trying to keep them out, perhaps because they are aware of the damage indicated in \the studies previously mentioned. In one example after community opposition convinced a town to get another impartial study, at a high cost to the town, the mayor indicated that he would make his decision before they even came up with their report.

They have also attempted to use their “low price” reputation to justify a veto of the bill giving their workers a higher wage in Washington DC, which is misleading since the wages of their workers is a very small percentage of their expenses and it ignore the studies that indicate that Wal-Mart contributes to poverty. It also ignore the fact that Wal-Mart ahs been a leader in off-shoring and that their products are much lower quality forcing the needy to replace things more often.

They have even come up with a new reality show instead of relying on the market and choices of consumers to decide what their new products might be. The winner of this contest should keep in mind the pressure that Wal-Mart puts on its suppliers.

I started with one that I missed from August; strange things happen at Wal-Mart.

BURTON, MI – Three people were taken into custody Wednesday, Sept 11, after Burton police discovered an active meth lab inside a van in the Walmart parking lot.

Bomb threat temporarily closes West Milwaukee Walmart 09/16/2013

WEST MILWAUKEE -- A bomb threat cleared the Walmart near 41st and Greenfield Ave., leaving employees and shoppers to watch as police work to clear the building. Law enforcement have searched the building, and haven't found any explosive devices. The Walmart has reopened for business.

"At 10:18 am this morning we had a bomb threat come in via the phone," Walmart store manager Joey Marx said. "At that point in time we did our procedures on evacuating the building as quickly as possible."

Witnesses tell CBS 58 they were shopping, and an announcement ordered everyone to leave the building. We're told this happened around 10:00 a.m.

Walmart shopper Aaron Redmond said, "[I was] in the line. Somebody told me its a blue code. I said I don't know nothing about no blue code. That was it. They said a bomb threat and that was it. That's all I know. Had my groceries, had my bag and my stuff to go to work with and that was it."

This isn't the first time this same Walmart location had a bomb threat. A bomb threat was called in on July 13, 2013. Complete article

A 43-year-old Murray man will spend a year in jail after admitting that while drunk he used his RV to hit a group of teenagers in a Washington City parking lot.

On Tuesday, a 5th District judge ordered May to spend one year in jail followed by 36 months of probation. May was also ordered to pay restitution to the victims.

In plea-agreement documents, May admitted that on May 23, 2012, he drove his motor home into a 16-year-old and hit the parked SUV the youths were standing beside. Witnesses told police that the RV’s awning pole fell on the boy, pinning him against the RV. Complete article

Walmart Chemical suspect in custody for mental health evaluation Nebraska 09/23/2013

McCOOK, Nebraska -- Criminal charges will be forwarded to the Red Willow County attorney's office, after an older McCook man threw chlorine bleach and ammonia on the floor at the service counter in the Walmart store in McCook Sunday afternoon, sickening 9-10 people, three seriously enough to be taken to Community Hospital.

McCook police officers were initially called about 2:30 p.m. to the store for a "public assist," to a disturbance in the area of the service counter. Ambulance personnel were requested, and because of the dangerous chemical mix and its fumes, the hazardous response team of the Red Willow Western Rural Fire Department responded to the scene.

McCook Police Chief Ike Brown said police officers subdued the man, who was reportedly shouting irrationally and throwing ammonia and chlorine bleach. The man was taken into custody, and later transported for a mental health evaluation. Brown declined to release the man's name. Complete article

Conroe, Texas officer indicted in teen's fatal shooting 09/27/2013

In a rare occurrence, a police officer in Montgomery County will face criminal charges in the August fatal shooting of a teenager suspected of shoplifting from a Conroe Walmart.

The family of the teen said Friday that the officer accused in the slaying should have been indicted Thursday on a murder charge, not manslaughter.

"This was murder. Manslaughter is not enough," said Juan Cuyun, the father of 19-year-old Russell Rios. "They tried to make it my son's fault."

Conroe police officer Jason Blackwelder, 29, is accused of shooting Rios in the back of the head on July 31 as the teen was fleeing Walmart security personnel.

Blackwelder, an off-duty Conroe police sergeant, saw Rios running away and followed workers who were chasing him into a wooded area, authorities said.

After the shooting, police released a statement that the two got into a "violent struggle" and the teen "began choking the sergeant."

Earlier this month, the family said an autopsy showed that Rios was shot in the back of the head, casting doubt on the officer's story. Complete article

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama - The City of Huntsville expects to spend between $40,000 and $50,000 on a second traffic study requested by people living near the proposed Mason Plaza Wal-Mart.

But Mayor Tommy Battle said Thursday night that the study likely won't be completed in time to have any bearing on whether the city issues Wal-Mart a building permit for the 150,000-square-foot Supercenter.

"If they come for a city permit, they are allowed to get a permit per our laws and regulations," Battle said during a City Council meeting. Complete article

Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent Gray’s decision to veto a law requiring Wal-Mart Stores to offer higher pay brought focus to the flip side of the living-wage debate: that Wal-Mart’s customers are often as economically disadvantaged as employees earning its low hourly wages.

WASHINGTON — Four bus rides to and from his northeast Washington apartment to the Walmart in Landover, Md. often consume half of Jimmy Pegues’ day. But since a heart attack last year pushed the used-car salesman into retirement and onto Social Security, biweekly trips for $4 generic prescriptions have become a lifeline.

“I come to Walmart — religiously,” said Pegues, 64, who saves $110 a month over pharmacies in the District of Columbia. “For me, at this point, and at this time in my life, the price is the most important thing.”

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray’s decision this month to veto a law requiring Wal-Mart Stores to offer higher pay pitted support for a “living wage” against a desire to spur investment and job growth in the city. But for thousands who cross the city line every day on their way to the Landover Walmart, the battle was about something more basic: low prices. Complete article

All I can say is that it couldn't happen to a more deserving company.
Yep there have been several similar stories indicating they're losing their momentum, which was inevitable. As usual they cane up with a denial, but they no longer have credibility and they can only hide it for so long. If anyone believes their denial they will be in for a surprise when it becomes so bad that the bad news hemorrhages, actually it already is outside of the commercial media.
