Walmart Crime Report January 2021

Walmart had at least fourteen shootings, in January 2021, with at least one fatality and seven more injuries. The fatality was an off-duty security guard who was there to shop, one of the injuries was also a police officer, and at least three of the non-fatal shootings were officer involved resulting in at least two injuries. One of the shootings involved a carjacking and chase; another involved a rollover with bullet holes in the vehicle. The first shooting of February took place in the first three hours of the month.

They also had at least sixteen more gun related crimes, including at least five or six armed robberies and another four or five false alarms, although some of these panics may have involved armed people.

In addition to the shooting death there were four more bodies found on the premises, two people killed in accidents, one person killed in a stabbing, and the relative of a former worker trying to draw attention to a death as a result of COVID-19; which comes to a total of eight deaths last month, since the COVID-19 death was from last August.

There were at least two Walmart employees attacked during theft of jewelry, including one of an 89-year-old employee. Why are they even making her work, let alone being threatened over something as petty and useless as jewelry? Walmart is part of the oligarchy system that forces working class people to work well beyond when they used to be able to retire, while the billionaires take all the profit without risk!

Walmart's own promotion for PS5 inspired people to open up boxes of cereal across the country to get it, even though there was little chance it would work, since the promotion was another scam anyway. Their own scams routinely incite more crime, which is almost certainly a significant reason why they have more crime than other stores. Several other employees were also attacked for other reasons, including two in two different states with a baseball bat.

There was a family brawl that had to be broken up and several customers were attacked, including one that was kidnapped. A Texas police indicated that his officers "clearly mishandled" an arrest after they were being sued, these admissions are rare with black defendants and this one was white. One of the El Paso mass shooting survivors that was expected to be called as a witness was deported for petty reasons even though she had no record and there was no reason to believe she was a threat to anyone. Despite improved rhetoric from the Biden administration there's little or no improvement. Many of these immigrants are victims of oppressive polices in their own countries, often with the approval of our politicians, yet the USA, "defender of the free world" isn't trying to enable them to participate in the decision making process, which real democracies do.

Problems with the pandemic are now routine at Walmart, and everywhere else, including several assaults related to arguments about masks, at least one possibly two that may have involved gun threats. They had another fake “COVID Response Team” spotted at one of their stores. One person was allegedly fired for complaining about lack of enforcement. Another Walmart store in Canada went to the other extreme sending local authorities to enforce rules often with shockingly high fines. Whether it's enforcement of pandemic rules or anything else, it's usually the rich that come up with high fines, even though they're much less likely to be enforced against other rich people, and poor people can't afford them. This is rarely taken into consideration, indicating these policies are more concerned with controlling the poor and keeping them poor.

There were close to, if not more than a dozen major accidents, police chases or other automobile related incidents, including the two people killed in accidents, including several other crashes with at least two hit and runs, a couple police chases, a stolen vehicle, someone slashing tires and a man with a medical incident that was stopped from crashing into Walmart by a police officer that used his cruiser to prevent it.

Walmart had at least eight fires, including four arsons at one store and three more arsons at other stores, one of which was next to gas pumps by someone that might have been suicidal, plus another major fire still under investigation.

There were at least seven major stabbings, including the one that was fatal, and two more knife threats or attempted stabbings last month. Nancy Grace expressed outrage when a criminal profiler expressed concern about the lack of supervision for the children involved in the fatal stabbing. The rest of us should be outraged by her. If she really was a "victims rights advocate," as she falsely claims, she would be interested in finding out the root causes of violence so it can be prevented. The most important right for victims should be not to be victims in the first place and if we can learn how to prevent crimes like this, then we can prevent many people from becoming victims in the first place. Nancy Grace is just an egotistical demagogue promoting herself by seeking vengeance after it's too late to prevent crimes. If we had better education about causes of crime decades ago many current atrocities could be prevented, but that wouldn't be good for the employment of demagogues like Nancy Grace, who's actually a disgrace.

Walmart also had at least one theft of a catalytic converter, following several others in recent months, several sexual assaults, a major "cash out" scam that cost them thousands of dollars, and many more assaults shoplifting's and other crimes.

Walmart has been caught with false claims of "made in the USA" again, which happens practically every year; if they ever had credibility they lost it decades ago. A former employee said they ignored warning signs about the opioid crisis. They filed a counter-suit to prevent a fair investigation; it remains to be seen if it will work.

They're facing at least five major lawsuits, including one for a tricycle that wasn't properly assembled, a suit for using the image of a veteran without permission, multiple slip and fall suits, a suit for failing to fulfill lifetime tire rotations using the pandemic as an excuse, without offering refunds, and a suit over an arrest that was refilled. Part of the money you give them is routinely used for their legal defense funds, but if you have reason to sue them you'll have to come up with your own legal expenses, without relying on funds from your opponent.

Walmart is increasing their efforts to control health care, which should concern everyone, since they put profits over the interests of the public on everything else they do. We should be just as concerned with their use of self-driving cars and other delivery items, some within the store. They're also involved in many political scandals including ending donations to lawmakers that supported rhetoric contributing to the insurrection; but they haven't stopped selling MyPillow yet, and they want credit for partial support of the minimum wage despite efforts to stop it for decades.

Another consumer found another needle in clothing, this time a sweatshirt, sold at Walmart.

A video from before the pandemic went viral again showing a TikTok mom answering the phone at Walmart and offering to help the customer, even though there are no employees around, do to their relentless corner cutting.

Another women was caught on video hitching a ride on the back of a Walmart truck until he stopped at a traffic light, which also went viral.

An armed man was caught pointing a gun at imaginary people in the Walmart parking lot, saying he was trying to "protect himself and his family," even though the video showed that he was alone, with no one stalking him, or even his family.

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 Walmart 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 Walmart and demonstrated that they have a large number of them, including on average more than one shooting per week somewhere in the country; now after counting them for several years that average is over two per week. In January of 2014 another study, "Rolling Back Prices and Raising Crime Rates?" provided additional statistical research indicating that Walmart 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 2021. 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.

Former Walmart Pharmacists Say Company Ignored Red Flags As Opioid Sales Boomed 01/03/2021

When Ashwani Sheoran showed up for early morning shifts at pharmacies in rural Michigan wearing his white Walmart smock, he often found customers waiting, desperate for bottles of pain pills.

"I see my patients, 15 to 20, already lined up to get prescriptions filled for morphine sulfate, oxycodone and other straight narcotics," he said.

This was in 2012 when the prescription opioid epidemic was exploding, killing tens of thousands of Americans every year.

Sheoran, now 41, told NPR he kept seeing what the Drug Enforcement Administration considers "red flags." Patients were driving long distances to buy their pills from Walmart. They couldn't explain why they needed such powerful opioid doses.

He started raising alarms, sending emails to his bosses in Michigan and to Walmart headquarters in Arkansas. He warned that their pharmacies were feeding a black market for opioids like Oxycontin.

What happened next made him angry. "They start putting more pressure on me to just be quiet and not to say anything more," Sheoran said.

"They told me, 'Do not reach out to the DEA, do not call the police. If you do so, your employment is going to be terminated immediately,' " Sheoran said, describing a warning he said was issued by his supervisor. Complete article

How Walmart plans to take over health care 01/04/2021

Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, wants to be your doctor, too.

As consumers face skyrocketing healthcare costs, Walmart, along with rivals CVS Health and Walgreens, is diving deeper into the healthcare business, opening in-store clinics in an attempt to grab a slice of the $3.6 trillion Americans spend annually on healthcare. Complete article

Suit refiled against Sahuarita in Ariz. Walmart arrest 01/04/2021

The attorney for a man who said his rights were violated during an arrest at Walmart in August 2019, has refiled a lawsuit against the Town of Sahuarita two weeks after it was dismissed by a judge.

U.S. District Judge John C. Hinderaker ruled Dec. 17 that Freedom Christopher Pfaendler’s suit against the town and five police officers failed to make a case on any of its assertions and granted the town’s motion to dismiss. But he left open the door to have the complaint refiled, and Pfaendler’s attorney, Richard Wintory, did so on Monday.

The refiled case expands on several points, and claims nothing described to 911 operators suggested Pfaendler “was acting in a suspicious manner or doing anything other than shopping.”

It also said, “One dispatcher suggested to the caller that Plaintiff likely could not hear anything if he was wearing a Bluetooth-equipped helmet.” Complete article

Morgan Wallen ‘leaks’ tracks from ‘Dangerous: The Double Album’ after Walmart early release 01/05/2021

After some fans posted on Twitter that they'd managed to get their hands on physical copies of Morgan's Dangerous: The Double Album at Walmart days ahead of its Friday release, the singer turned to Instagram to set the record straight.

"Hey y'all, it's been brought to my attention that some of my music, well my album, has leaked at some Walmarts around the country. I don't know how that's possible, but it has, also that some of y'all are posting and trying to spread the new music, which I'm super thankful for. I'm glad you're eager to do that," Morgan shares in a video.

"But man I've been working on this album for three years. I'll be damned if I'm going to let Walmart do the leaking like that," Morgan adds, encouraging fans to keep up to date with him on social media and to purchase the album through Target instead, as he's given the retailer two additional bonus tracks.

Walmart changes military leave policy, agrees to pay up to $14 million for reservists’ claims 01/06/2021

Walmart and an Army reservist have reached an agreement to settle his claims regarding paid military leave that could ultimately pay up to $14 million to thousands of Guard and Reserve members. The proposed settlement, if approved by the court, could include more than 7,000 current and former Walmart employees who have taken military leave since October 2004, according to court documents. Walmart has also changed its policy as of Jan. 1, to increase the paid military leave benefit during shorter-term military duties.

The settlement could also potentially have an impact on other employers, said Kevin Hollinger, legislative director for the Reserve Officers Association.

The reservist, Nickolas Tsui, of Dracut, Massachusetts, alleges Walmart violated his rights under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, known as USERRA. Tsui, who is currently employed at a Sam’s Club store operated by Walmart in Hudson, New Hampshire, alleges that Walmart violated his USERRA rights by not providing fully paid leave when he took short-term military leave — leave that lasts 30 consecutive days or fewer.

Walmart defends suit v. DOJ, denies intrusion on prosecutors’ discretion 01/07/2021

(Reuters) - Can a prospective Justice Department target use a preemptive declaratory judgment suit to shape the parameters of the government’s case? Or must defendants wait to be sued in an enforcement action to contest DOJ’s interpretation of the law?

That’s one of the key questions in a fierce and highly consequential fight between Walmart and the U.S. government. The Justice Department, as you probably recall, filed an enforcement action against Walmart in federal court in Delaware last December, alleging that the company violated the Controlled Substances Act by failing to police opioids prescriptions.

The government’s complaint, which cites more than 230,000 overdose deaths that have occurred in the 10-year opioid epidemic, is seeking maximum penalties for thousands of prescriptions that DOJ contends Walmart should not have filled. Walmart has called the suit “misguided and misleading,” contending that its pharmacists have refused to fill thousands prescriptions from “questionable doctors” but are prohibited from interfering in doctor-patient relationships.

Batavia Ill. Walmart Loses Thousands In 'Cash Out' Scam: Report 01/08/2021

BATAVIA, IL — Batavia police are investigating a "cash out" scam that saw two men walk out of the local Walmart store on the day after Christmas with nearly $3,000 in electronics, the Kane County Chronicle reports.

The two suspects entered the store around 6 p.m. Dec. 26 and gathered electronic items before checking out separately at the electronics department register, the report states.

Both men told the cashier their credit cards require two-step verification and convinced them to type "cash" into the register for verification, according to the report.

That caused the register's cash drawer to open and a receipt to be printed, making it look like a normal transaction, but no money was ever paid by the two men running the scam, the Kane County Chronicle reports. Complete article

NILES - From fighting for his country to waging a war against corporate America, a Niles veteran says he has been re-traumatized by Amazon and Walmart after the companies sold his image for profit.

A few months ago, Army veteran Nicholas Giovannelli noticed something stunning. His image popped up on posters, being sold in a big box store and online.

"To come home and learn, a couple of months ago that Amazon, Walmart and other corporate defendants had misappropriated his image and were exploiting his image for their financial gain," said Giovannelli’s attorney Craig D. Tobin. "One of the photographs even has his name underneath it, which raises other security issues according to the United States Army."

Giovanelli is a Purple Heart recipient, medically retired from the Army after several tours of duty. He suffers from traumatic brain injury and PTSD. Complete article

South Carolina ‘Slip And Fall’ Turns Into Major Headache For Walmart 01/15/2021

So-called “slip and fall” cases represent the bread-and-butter of the “premises liability” tort – a personal injury genre which supports an entire industry of attorneys, insurance agents, physical therapists and related professionals.

The tort is among the most common civil actions in the United States, fueled by millions of “slip, trip or fall” injuries that take place all over the country each year.

Those of you hip to the term are no doubt recalling a particular scene from the 1995 comedy Friday starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker …

Anyway, of these incidents an estimated 800,000 require hospitalization, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And the annual cost in terms of medical treatment related to these falls was (at last count) north of $50 billion – of which anywhere from 50 to 75 percent gets subsidized by Medicaid.

And that’s before we get into attorneys’ fees and related costs … Complete article

Montoursville, Pa. – A Watsontown man is accused of sexually assaulting a child inside of a parked car at Walmart in Montoursville, the Lycoming County District Attorney's Office reported.

Fake “COVID Response Team” spotted at Mobile Alabama Walmart 01/17/2021

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — A couple caused a stir in a Mobile area Walmart in an apparent COVID prank. A WKRG News 5 viewer sent us images of what appears to be a man and a woman dressed in disposable coveralls with the words “COVID Response Team” scribbled in magic marker on the back.

The images were snapped at the beltline Walmart this weekend. The viewer said the pair went through the store claiming COVID was in the building and they were part of the rapid response team, causing a commotion and scaring some of the shoppers. Security got to the pair and escorted them outside.

How Many People Work at Walmart in Each State, and What They Are Paid 01/17/2021

Walmart, the largest employer in the United States, employing about 1.5 million Americans, has been at the center of controversies over its low wages for years. In 2020, the average wage of an hourly worker in a Walmart store in the U.S. was $14.76, which comes to between $25,000 and $30,000 annually for a full-time employee.

24/7 Wall St. reviewed store facts from Walmart’s corporate site to identify how many people in each state work at Walmart as sales associates and how much they are paid.

The average wage of a Walmart field worker, which takes into account both full- and part-time workers, does not differ much from state to state. It varies from $13.42 an hour in Idaho to $16.02 an hour in New Hampshire. Compared to the state minimum wage and cost of living, however, employees in some states fare much better than others.

The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour, and 19 states have not altered it. Fifteen states have set a minimum wage over $10.00 an hour.

The cost of living is higher than the national average in nine of the 15 states with the highest paying Walmart jobs. A dollar goes the furthest in America’s southern and midwestern states — here is the value of a dollar in every state. Complete article

Viral TikTok shows mom answering phone at Walmart when employees are nowhere to be found 01/18/2021

When the phone at Walmart began ringing and no employees were around to answer it, a TikTok-famous mom took matters into her own hands.

TikToker @victoria.villano’s account is largely dedicated to showing off her cool mom, who, in typical Italian mother fashion, is passionate about her cooking and quick to help others when they’re in a jam.

That desire to help others is on display in Villano’s latest TikTok, which takes place in a Walmart that appears short-staffed. Villano originally filmed the video two years ago, as evidenced by the fact that nobody is wearing masks, but the clip has enjoyed a viral resurgence, earning over 5 million views since Villano uploaded it yesterday.

The video shows Villano’s mother reaching over an unattended employee desk to pick up a phone that is ringing.

“I just answered the phone because there’s like nobody here,” Villano tells the customer on the line. “No, I don’t work here, but the phone’s ringing and ringing, and I know how it feels to be on that other end and nobody answers.”

“I’m just a customer looking for somebody to help me, actually,” Villano continues. “If you need help, I’m looking for a bell to ring over here.” Complete article

PASADENA, Md. (WJZ) — The fast-thinking of some officers from the Anne Arundel County Police Department is being credited with helping prevent a potentially serious incident.

Walmart CEO Says Wage Hike Should Consider Regional Economics 01/19/2021

Walmart Inc. Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon said the U.S. needs to confront its health and economic crises -- but added he doesn’t support a universal $15 minimum wage.

President-elect Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan would raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour from the current level of $7.25, which is “too low,” McMillon said during a media briefing with Business Roundtable CEO Josh Bolten. But instead of setting a uniform nationwide level, McMillon called for a higher wage that takes into account “geographic differences” and “small business.” Congress should find the “right pace” for wage increases, said McMillon, who is serving as chairman of Business Roundtable.

By submitting my information, I agree to the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service and to receive offers and promotions from Bloomberg.

As the world’s largest retailer and an employer of 1.5 million workers in the U.S. alone, Walmart’s CEO is closely watched in the retail world and beyond when it comes to labor practices and corporate decision-making. The company has increased its minimum wage in recent years amid criticism from labor activists, but it remains short of the $15 threshold and still lags that of competitors such as Target Corp. and Inc.

Walmart CEO blames 'fiction' of fraudulent election for dividing Americans 01/19/2021

New York (CNN Business)Walmart CEO Doug McMillon lamented Tuesday that the baseless claims of a stolen election pushed by President Donald Trump and his allies have further inflamed America at a time of peril.

"We all find ourselves in the midst of concurrent health, economic and racial equity crises as well as facing the reality of an electorate divided in large part to the fiction of a fraudulent election," McMillon said Tuesday during an event hosted by the Business Roundtable.

The insurrection at the US Capitol by Trump supporters January 6 caused major companies including Walmart to rethink their political activity. Walmart (WMT) suspended contributions to the 147 Republicans who tried, unsuccessfully, to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's victory. Other major companies such as Facebook (FB) and Coca-Cola halted political contributions altogether. Complete article

Walmart’s ‘Made in the USA’ claims under fire again 01/20/2021

Walmart is once again playing fast and loose with the rules when it comes to labeling goods “Made in the USA,” according to an industry watchdog.

The world’s biggest retailer — which five years ago managed to dodge a federal inquiry over its labeling practices by promising to change them — is now claiming on its website that goods that it sells like vacuum cleaners, towels and plastic storage bins are made in America when they aren’t, according to Truth In Advertising.

In a Tuesday complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission, the nonprofit consumer advocacy group noted that Walmart claimed in a Facebook ad last fallthat nearly two-thirds of the millions of products it sells are made in America. Meanwhile, however, only 2,000 items are listed under its site’s “Made in USA” filter, according to the group, also known as

“The truth is consumers can’t be certain any of these products meet the FTC’s definition of ‘made’ in the USA … because of how Walmart is attempting to redefine the legal standard,” said. Complete article

Walmart CEO and others support federal minimum wage hike 01/20/2021

President Biden has begun his job running the country and among his top initiatives; raising the minimum wage to “at least $15” per hour.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon and current chairman of the Business Roundtable says his company, and the business lobby, support an increase in the federal minimum wage. While McMillon says that $7.25 an hour is too low, he stopped short of commenting on the $15 level Tuesday, one day ahead of the inauguration during a briefing with reporters.

The retailer is the largest U.S. employer with about 1.5 million associates and the BRT, a consortium of corporate leaders, employs over 15 million and generates more than $7 trillion in annual revenues.

McMillon, who says bipartisan support and taking into account geographical differences is important when considering an increase in the minimum wage. Larry Kudlow, former President Trump’s top economic advisor, did not support a federal minimum wage, noting that it should be handled at the state level. Complete article

Greed in the Suites, From Walgreens to Walmart 01/26/2021 by Sam Pizzigati

Walgreens has no buzz. Most every week millions of us walk into a local outlet of this drab drugstore giant and give the enterprise all around us not a second thought. Maybe we should.

Walgreens illustrates — personifies — the long-term economic trends that the Trump years so cavalierly doubled down upon. The core reality at the heart of these trends: Top corporate executives are busily pocketing immense paychecks at the direct expense of their workers.

At Walgreens, workers start an $10 an hour. No chain store empire employing essential workers pays less. Could Walgreens afford to pay more? Just no way, the company’s flacks would like us to believe. Walgreens was cost-cutting, the excuses go, even before the pandemic hit, announcing plans in 2019 to shut down 200 of its 9,000 local U.S. outlets. Complete article

The lawsuit alleges Walmart “promises to provide tire balancing and rotation services every 7,500 miles for the life of qualified tires from the original purchase date.”

The plaintiff says he obtained tire rotation and balancing services in 2019 but was denied the services in 2020 due to safety protocols Walmart created due to the COVID-19 virus. Complete article

Ontario Authorities Patrol Costco, Walmart to Enforce Masking, Distancing 01/26/2021

Ontario issued dozens of fines to large retailers and their customers — $1,000 and $750 (CAD), respectively — over recent weeks as part of its “big-box store blitz” to enforce compliance with mask-wearing and social distancing decrees, ostensibly issued as public health protection measures.

The province deployed about 50 “inspectors” from its Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development — in addition to local bylaw and police officers — to retailers such as Costco, Loblaws, and Walmart. Dozens of fines have been issued in recent weeks to both patrons and businesses for violations of what Ontario deems “COVID-19 health and safety requirements.”

CTV News reported on escalation of punishment — including fines and imprisonment — for “more serious” violations of the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act:
The government said if a violation is more serious, a person can be charged with failing to comply with an order. If convicted, the court can impose fines as high as $100,000 for individuals, and directors and officers of a corporation can be fined up to $500,000. Both could also receive terms of imprisonment of up to one year.

Watson La. Walmart not enforcing mask mandate, Subway employee says 01/26/2021

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A third-party employee is claiming Walmart in Watson is refusing to enforce Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ mask mandate and is allowing customers to enter the store without asking them to put on a mask.

The Subway manager inside the Watson Walmart said she has seen customers and Walmart employees ignoring the governor’s mask requirement. The manager who asked WAFB not to name her out of fear of backlash, said when those customers come to her Subway, they often become confrontational when told to put on their mask.

“Some people will be like, oh, whatever and cuss us out, use very vulgar names and leave and to be honest, that’s kind of on the nice side,” she said.

In surveillance video shared with WAFB by the franchise owner, you can see a customer inside the restaurant become irate with employees after being told he had to wear a mask. The customer slammed his drink on the ground and walked out. Complete article
