These people who stole from the system deserve to be punished. It's a damned shame that children have to suffer. Maybe the state needs to take
the children away from parents that would steal without thought to the consequences of their actions.
You're a tough customer there Mr. Bunny. I have to agree with you here though. Perhaps, maybe, these people didn't know precisely what their balance
was. I'll grant them that...but they absolutely knew if they had hundreds or more in there vs. having a ballpark figure to have gone to Walmart that
day with to shop. These people aren't walking up with a cart full of things to play "Lets find out our balance today!" when they get to paying for it.
That's silly to suggest ..and the only way I can see they get the benefit of any doubt. So...I guess they lose that benefit too.
At the same time..Walmart KNEW this was wrong. They KNEW this was running off the books and outside the accountability or checks that existed and
still, they let it happen. So, I don't say the people should have anything different happen to them. They earned their whack over the head for being
thieves.....but so did Walmart. They ought to be fined the cost of the shopping spree x's some number for good measure and a lesson.
After all, how would Walmart feel about this if someone robbed them, went on down the street to Target and proceeded to go on a shopping spree. Then,
at the register, they pull out bank bags stuffed with Walmart receipts and Walmart money, obvious to all......to be told their money is WELCOME at
Target, and having robbed it makes no difference?
I'm thinking Walmart wouldn't see it as so funny then.
