Walmart Crime Report January 2019
Walmart had another fifteen shootings in January, again after breaking the record in December with at least twenty shootings probably more, since one of the suicides from that month didn't list the cause, which is almost always, if not always, gunfire at Walmart, and several additional shootings off the premises were related to Walmart, but not counted. At least three of these shootings resulted in deaths, including one that was not initially reported as a shootings, instead only saying it was a suicide, however, another article confirmed it was a shootings, the other two were murders.
There were two wrongful death lawsuits filed against Walmart, or the police for past shootings and Zephen Xaver, the Florida mass shooter was reported to previously work at Walmart, none of which are counted among the fifteen shootings this month, which is only the fifth time they've had that many and second time when it wasn't the Christmas shopping season with that many. Media reports on Walmart crime often appear to be less reliable, without reporting many details and often waiting days, or even weeks before reporting them at all.
There was also a surge of shootings at Malls across the country, which actually did get reported on cable news, for a little while, but they didn't mention that at the same time there was also a surge in Walmart shootings about as large, and this was quickly forgotten, unlike some of their obsession du jours, including Zephen Xaver, who they covered more than the retail shootings but let follow up reporting fall down the memory hole after no more than a week. One of the reports that got very little attention in most of the media was that the Mall where an innocent man was killed by police in Alabama banned a protest organizer, even though little or nothing was done to reform police training or report on the leading causes of violence so they can be prevented and police encounters can be greatly reduced.
One obvious point was made by a customer responding to a stabbing who said, “Desperate people do desperate things; it doesn’t matter where they are,” but instead of trying to defend the working class minimizing desperation by many people reducing this violence, they increase their union busting practices and corner cutting among other things that contribute to poverty and crime.
There are growing stories of homeless people stealing to get by or committing suicide because they can't afford health care, in some cases going out in a blaze of glory shooting others as well, yet the oligarchy continues to rig the economic system for the wealthy increasing desperation and violence, instead of reducing it.
Instead the establishment quietly tries to sweep their crime problems under the rug, although those following good alternative media outlets won't fall for that.
At least two of these shootings were officer involved, but they didn't hit any people, although one of the shots hit the car of someone that hit the officer before he fired at the fleeing vehicle. In addition to the three deaths in shootings there were another two that died as a result of crashes at Walmart, one of which was a result of a shoplifting but didn't happen on the promises. This is a total of five deaths which would have been high compared to the deaths about five years ago, but last year there were a minimum of six each month and an average of nine, with the highest having at least twelve dead in one month.
There were at least thirteen other gun related crimes at Walmart last month including at least three or four active shooter scares, even though there were no shots fired in these incidents, and a couple of them might not have even involved any guns, although people claimed they had guns. Most of these involved robberies, or shoplifting but there was at least one where a clumsy person dropped a gun causing a panic, one or two carjackings, and a man who broke in and got away with a stolen shotgun. This man was apparently homeless, like a lot of other people involved in mostly minor crimes, and a handful of major ones; however there's little or no attempt to reduce poverty or homelessness, instead trying to continue driving down wages, and ship jobs overseas, which is a major part of their high crime problems, although mainstream media refuses to report on this.
Walmart banned someone for allegedly stealing a loaf of bread, although media reports indicate this might not be conclusive, however he did videotape the Walmart worker who accused him of stealing, and knocked the cell phone out of his hand. The police filed charges against her, and to the best of my knowledge only notified him that Walmart had banned him. It appears as if they might have been more concerned about the video than the shoplifting, which might not have been real, saying, "it is their policy to not allow recording in their stores, but it's up to the manager to enforce it." There have been several similar incidents in the past like this including people being told they couldn't take video of brawls happening during the Christmas season and one where a shopper was videoing dead fish, establishing a pattern of behavior where they use their control of videos to hold others accountable but not them selves.
Their policy seems to be they can spy on you to hold you accountable, but you can't do the same to them!
Another incident involved a women that was arrested for resisting arrest although it isn't clear what the original charge was, and she was holding a baby while an off-duty police officer, who may not have been in uniform, was tackling her. It appears as if the women might have been acting in self-defense against another woman who was stalking her, and might not have known for sure that this was a real police officer, and there's a lawsuit pending on that as well.
In yet another incident there were a couple security guards arrested for impersonating SLED officers or "South Carolina Law Enforcement Division." According to their side of the story they initially notified employees that they spotted a shoplifter, and after being asked how they knew said they were trained by SLED, which appears to be true, but later after employees asked them to assist the arrest they claimed to be SLED officers, which was presumably false. This is part of an increasing problem with growing amounts of private security, some of which doesn't have the same training as official police, often leading to vigilantism, or the appearance of vigilantism; yet, there's little or no research into whether efforts to privatize the "justice" system are leading to increased problems and bureaucracy, instead of the opposite. In many cases the for-profit motive of this should raise obvious alarm bells, yet it doesn't to those pushing it, often with financial incentives that have nothing to do with "justice."
The money they spend on security is paid for indirectly by consumers, but there's little or no regulation to ensure it's not misused, and they developed their oligarchy status as a result of political connections that enabled them to drive many more sincere small businesses out to dominate the market creating a corporate spy operation not accountable to the public with help from the government. A large reason for their high crime problems is their cuts to services that help people; but instead of restoring them to reverse the process, they increase surveillance activities often falsely making claims, some of which have led to lawsuits that cost and enormous amount of tax payer money, in addition to the large amount of tax money paid to increase court and prison costs, as a result of high Walmart crime problems.
Walmart also had at least two or three brawls this month, which happen year round although they're much more common during the holiday season, and another police officer and his wife accused of stealing from Walmart. They can often kill people with little accountability, but not stealing from Walmart. There were another to incidents where there was an evacuation for hazardous materials, or perceived hazardous materials, one from cleaning fluids, which did cause health problems and another for “white powder” which caused a panic whether there was anything to it or not.
In addition to the two crashes killing people, Walmart had at least a dozen more crashes, carjackings, stolen cars, etc. often involving police chases and at least one of the shootings was related to this. One of the stolen vehicles was a police cruiser, and another cruiser was rammed at least a couple times during the chase. Most of these crashes only injure or kill shoplifting suspects, including one that died this month, but the threat is always there that they'll kill innocent bystanders, yet they still ignore research that could reduce crime and chases, especially if it impacts profits. One of these stolen cars had a baby in the back seat, although the thief didn't realize this until it was too late and quickly abandoned it with the baby, who was recovered safely, afterwards.
Fires are becoming much more common at Walmart as well, mostly as a result of arson, with at least four vehicles catching fire, at least one as a result of arson and at least nine more fires, mostly in the stores, and as a result of arson. One of these was retaliation for an argument over a parking sport, although it's unclear how setting fire in the chip aisle is connected to that. Another was to distract people from his shoplifting attempt, by someone who initially got away, but they always have these things on tape, virtually guaranteeing they can't get away with it long, which happened again, but that doesn't seem to stop people from trying.
In addition to the man shot with a hatchet last month there were over half a dozen other knife or machete attacks or robberies, including at least a couple stabbings and another one threatening a police officer, which didn't result in injuries or more shots fired. There were numerous more robberies, assault, for calling mother a bad name or other reasons, an attempt to lure a child away from his parents, stalkings and thefts, often of large amounts, which was never a major threat before rapid increases of big-box stores, with easy exits and few employees to watch for this massive amount of theft.
Walmart virtually always has several recalls, often of dangerous products, including one of pork paddies that might have rubber in them, fruit that might carry listeria, and an expansion of an old recall over infant liquid ibuprofen which is more potent than it's supposed to be.
Walmart continues it's increasing reliance on technology, while saying they're not going to reduce jobs further, which doesn't appear more credible than many if any of their other claims, since they get caught lying one time after another, although mainstream media rarely covers obvious lies from their advertiser; and they have a revolving door with many other business, which should raise major doubts about the so-called free-enterprise system, where they're supposed to compete with other stores. Even when they don't involve hiring employees from alleged competitors or direct interlocking boards of directors, ties with other oligarch enable them to continue wiping out the few remaining small businesses.
They're even hiring a CEO for a "stealth company" which supposedly doesn't exist, at least not yet, what ever that means. As long as we're not allowed to understand how the economy works we're supposed to believe it's a free-enterprise system, or so they imply. One of the few remaining antitrust lawsuits was settled between Walmart and StarKist, which was confidential of course, but it appears as if StarKist paid Walmart, not consumers, for alleged price fixing, which they still don't admit to. The days where antitrust defends consumers appear to be over, which is what they were intended to do, instead they're used to enable those with political and legal clout to sue other corporations.
The United States government is trying to pressure India's government to stop restricting Walmart and Amazon practices, as well. What makes them so upset? That India's government is protecting their own consumers better than the United States apparently!
Trump's food stamp plans, and the government shut down apparently also drew attention to poverty wages that are forcing Walmart workers to collect food stamps, although mainstream media is minimizing coverage for that as well!
They have several more lawsuits about discrimination, and failure to follow California laws about disclosure on application process, which amounts to another example of how they're allowed to spy on you but you're not allowed to hold them accountable.
Al Norman made a point of notifying people that they abandon their right to sue or return some items if they use their customer delivery system, although this is often hidden in the fine print!
Walmart had another hawk invasion that shut down a store, which is fewer animals than usual that go to shop, or perhaps visit, Walmart, who was removed by animal control; I can't imagine why they don't allow equal rights for animals, they also restricting some companion pets as well.
Apparently a woman riding around in a Walmart shopping cart drinking wine out of a Pringles can turned in to a massive viral story, allegedly driven by social media, but an enormous amount of it was also boosted by media outlets that reported it around the country, although it's mild compared to massive numbers of shootings, crashes, arson stabbings and many other stories they decline to cover adequately. Thousands of people were so outraged they agreed to show up for a party driving around Walmart drinking out of Pringles cans; three of them actually showed up.
I can't imagine why this is more interesting than someone literally trying to shove his head up several people asses before finally getting arrested!
I suppose I could make stuff up like this but why would I? This is Walmart, there's no need to make up strange things!
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 January 2019. 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.
