Walmart Crime Report October 2018
There were at least seven shootings at Walmart this month, with two of them killing someone and several more wounded, and at least two more near by; there was also a high profile shooting killing two at Kroger's killing two more. There were at least ten additional gun related crimes, including several robberies, carjackings, and arguments. One of these incidents was a disgruntled customer outraged by the service that threatened to shoot employees. (Initially there were only six shootings listed in this report, however, a follow up article indicated that one of the dead bodies found in the parking lot was a result of a shooting during a carjacking gone wrong that wasn't reported by the media immediately after it happened.)
One of these incidents wasn't initially reported in easy to find stories, but drew additional attention when he was released from jail and threatened to commit suicide at a car accident and had a stand off with police for hours holding up traffic on the highway. There have been several other major stories that weren't initially reported, but drew additional attention later when they were arrested or follow up incidents happened. The most recent shooting last month, which happened in Canada, on the last day of the month didn't turn up in the usual searches but someone tweeted it to me from Twitter, otherwise it wouldn't have made it into this count. I don't know for certain but they might be getting more common.
We rely on the media to provide us with news about violence and crime so we can establish policies to minimize them; however they're funded by advertising, and Walmart has more crime problems than any other store and they provide more advertising to the media as well. There are some subtle, and often not so subtle signs to indicate that this funding may be creating a bias.
There were another three killers that were arrested at Walmart's around the country, two without incident, and another one that was tracked the suspects, who had shot a victim and threw him out of a moving care before fleeing, through their cell phones, and found them sleeping at Walmart at two thirty in the morning. they called in a SWAT team and used flash bang grenades to wake the suspects, although it's hard to imagine why they felt that necessary, since they obviously had them surrounded.
In addition to the death as a result of a shooting there were four more bodies found in Walmart parking lots, or one on the roof of someone working there that may have had an accident or medical incident, but cause of death wasn't reported. There was also a lawsuit about another death that didn't previously attract much attention, since he died days after an accident months ago and another report of someone dying from contaminated beef; but this beef which was recalled was also sold at other stores as well and reports don't indicate where it came from. There was another story about several retailers including Walmart "Phasing Out Paint Strippers linked to dozens of deaths," this was done "In the absence of government action;" if we still had a government interested in looking out for the best interest of the public, when they found out that chemicals were killing people instead of "Phasing" them out they would demand an immediate recall and take them off the shelf immediately. However now that the government seems to be a fully own subsidiary of the corporations that finance political campaigns they let those corporations call the shots despite the flimsy illusion of democracy we have left.
Walmart crime has been getting worse for decades, and there've been several studies, despite limited funding from large institutions to show that it's worse than other stores; however, instead of recognizing this years, if not decades ago, they've continued to expand without addressing these problems or recognizing the causes of them. Now after several attempts previously reported to privatize the justice system, including their "restorative Justice" system, which was a disaster and has been scaled back, they're turning their parking lots into growing surveillance areas with camera towers expanding at some the stores with the highest crime problems. Some of these cameras can supposedly, "read 'a UPC code sitting on a shelf'."
However instead of recognizing that some of the major contributing causes of these crime problems are cuts in services limiting the amount of employees, including at self-check out lanes, they're increasing some of the cuts and adding more automation, with new plans to allow people to scan and buy large items within the store during the holiday season, for starters, even though past efforts like this have lead to increased crime problem. Ironically, while they cut back on services that might help consumers, they seem to be increasing on what they call "security" to catch people stealing as a result of lack of help at the registers, which is a massive entrapment operation, paid for with tax payer dollars, since the court and prison system is paid for by tax payers, not Walmart.
In fact, they routinely negotiate lower tax plans when they move into town often giving them a competitive advantage over other business with less crime problems putting them out of business, and increasingly even suing local governments to get even more tax breaks!
The media and the police often ask the public for their help solving these crimes, sometimes even when it's as petty as stealing "salt and pepper shakers as well as other, unknown items" or thefts less than $100, clearly implying that the government often spends more prosecuting people for some of these petty thefts than the value of the merchandise stolen from Walmart. On one occasion a few years back a loss prevention officer chased and beat a man for stealing a fifty-nine cent doughnut. Occasionally in addition to spending large amounts of tax payer money for petty theft they also spend even more for lawsuits defending against excessive force.
It's not unreasonable to speculate about corporations trying to take full control of the government that pretends to regulate them!
One of the problems with this method of addressing crime may be to be more concerned about whether or not there appears to be more crimes based on reports, instead of whether or not there actually is more crime; on numerous occasions there have been employees told not to call police about certain incidents. This month there was another where a customer attempted to call 911 on a store phone when they saw an unconscious employee and a co-worker took the phone away saying they were aware of the problem, her husband responded by using his cell phone to make the call, but if store policies prevented a quick call it might endanger lives, as they're more concerned about appearances than safety!
They continue to have problems with shoplifter putting razor-blades in shopping carts, to cut packages, and leaving them there so customers get cut but it's only reported on a low profile manner so they don't catch it as quickly and there are more people getting cut. And another disgruntled employee was involved in an incident, yet there's no requirement to disclose their union busting activities or find out if they're inciting some of these incidents by pushing them too far, although there are plenty of other reports of constant lawsuits by workers who don't resort to extremes, although they don't have the same legal resources or political connections as Walmart. And another of the police officer caught switching price tags has turned himself in again. They even entrap the police who can often get away with excessive force even killing people but not shoplifting at Walmart.
Walmart had over a dozen crashes, chases, at least three carjackings, including one at gunpoint and another where the victim was hit in the head with a bag of rocks, and a couple hit and runs. At least a couple of these crashes were major wrecks leading to serious injuries, and two cars flipped, with one incident sending shoplifted beer jewelry and steaks all over the road after a crash.
There were almost a dozen if not over a dozen knife related incidents including robberies, stabbings, and someone attacked with a hatchet. They had at least two arsons this month and an old one went to court and resulted in a not guilty by reason of insanity. Perhaps it shouldn't be surprising, Walmart drives lots of people crazy. They also had someone leaving hazardous material at Walmart.
There were plenty of additional assaults including on police officers, loss prevention officers, other workers, customers, including an 82 year old man that was punched in the face. They had school board members form at least two southern states get caught shoplifting, and the local judge for one of them forced her to carry a sign in front of the courthouse saying she stole, so everyone would know about it. Some of these Southern tactics, including corporal punishment or other punishments designed to humiliate, have been proven to be a failure but that doesn't stop them from doing them over and over again.
In addition to the paint thinners that are being "phased out" because they caused deaths instead of recalled, there are additional recalls for a quarter million hatchets that are a safety hazard and three or four more recalls of food for legionnaires', salmonella, or other food poisonings. At least one of these has supposedly led to a death. Many of these were far less common with a diverse food supply but massive oligarchs are taking over pretty much all industries.
There have been several racists or bigoted incidents, including calling police on a black person for caring for white children, yelling at people for speaking the wrong language, perhaps even when they're talking to other people who understand the language, and demanding that a mother "gag" her baby, often on camera; and additional incidents where people were fired for alleged bigoted reasons.
Walmart is also taking increasing amounts of control over the health care system in a variety of ways, by merging with insurance or other health care companies. One of their justification is that "none of us wants to be Sears," but the rest of us have to think carefully about whether we want a company like Walmart to have increasing control of health care considering how incompetent they do everything else. This is especially true after stories that they may be blacklisting doctors, and optometrist organizations have also expressed their concerns recently.
Healthcare isn't the only thing Walmart is merging with, they're also buying up half a dozen or more other companies, at any given time creating an even bigger oligarchy controlling a growing amount of the economic system; and they often use their smaller subcontractors as scapegoats to take the blame even though they often respond to pressure from Walmart management. It's time to stop pretending that we still have a free market competitive system, which means if we want any accountability for government or corporations we need a different economic system.
Walmart continues to have more than their share of odd activities at their stores including an old man offering to buy a child form a customer, and later acting as if he doesn't know what's wrong with it, smashing pumpkins seems funny when Gallagher does it but they don't like it at Walmart, a shoplifting suspect telling the police to ‘Suck A Pink Cow Udder’ which she happened to be wearing, and of course deer have to shop somewhere too.
However, one job I don't want to be given is to find out who took a shit on the employees uniforms, nor do I want to be the police officer called in to investigate that one!
Hey I know exactly what you're thinking!
And I won't dignify it with a response!
However, it wasn't the naked shopper that did this, he wasn't even in the same state, and I'm not even sure why they care about that.
Strange things happen at Walmart!
In 2006 Wake Up Walmart did a study, "Is Walmart Safe?" based on incidents in 2004, (PDF) about crime at Wal-Mart which showed that it increased when Walmarts opened up and that crime was higher at Walmart than at other retailers. Since then Walmart Shootings began compiling 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. In January of 2014 another study, "Rolling Back Prices and Raising Crime Rates?" provided additional statistical research indicating that Wal-Mart might be contributing to higher crime rates or at least a slowing of the decline in crime. The study found that. “on average, communities with Walmarts had 17 more property crimes and two more violent crimes per 10,000 people than those communities without Walmarts.” I reviewed this more in Walmart’s crime problem, Rolling Back Safety more than prices? where I explained that although this study is helpful they could have done better with additional data that is available and I reviewed some of that. I also added my own review about why I think that Walmart policies have been contributing to higher crime in a previous blog, Walmart high crime rate continues un-investigaterd and have provided additional information under the author tag Walmart Crime Watch.
Stacy Mitchell has also compiled a list of other studies about Walmart and how they impact society, Key Studies on Big-Box Retail & Independent Business. To the best of my knowledge Walmart 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. One of the responses they’ve come up with is what they call "Restorative Justice" which gives first time shoplifters a chance to avoid being arrested or any criminal record if they take an on line course which costs $400 up front or $500 in payments, plus perhaps, reparations. This has been part of the privatization process and often denies suspects of the due process or access to a lawyer, perhaps even intimidating and extorting from some people that might not even be guilty. Walmart seems to be trying to find a way to turn crime into a profit making situation instead of looking for the most effective ways to reduce it. Making Change at Walmart is asking If you or someone you know has gone through @Walmart's "Restorative Justice" program for first-time suspected shoplifters, send us a DM. 03/30/2017 to ensure that it isn’t doing more harm than good. I did my own review of this program as well at Walmart’s “Restorative Justice” Endangers Public Without Reducing Crime. The following are a list of incidents that occurred in October 2018. According to the "Is Walmart Safe?" the average store in their sampling had 250 incidents per year, indicating that these are only a fraction of the crime reports at Walmart, and presumably, the ones most likely to make the news on the internet nationwide. This isn't statistically representative, as the 2006 or the "Rolling Back Prices and Raising Crime Rates?" study or some of the studies cited by Stacy Mitchell; but it does provide some additional information that may help recognize how many problems there are at Walmart.

"I have no idea what it's going to cost, I have no idea the depth and detail, I suspect it's going to be complicated. But if this helps us deliver consumers safe food, then let's do it," he said.

The lowered profit goal for the current year reflects the acquisition of Indian e-commerce company Flipkart, which Walmart paid $16 billion to buy earlier this year.
