WELL, it looks that way. According to multiple sources. Rumors online in the 2010's, claimed that a Walmart managers conference in 2012, directed store managers to let shoplifters go.
Especially in cases of petty thefts. As the story went, Walmart already had an insurance policy that covered shoplifting.
That's what I'm thinking tonight after another horrible shooting at an elementary school. The dust has not settled yet, and as of press time we know that 19 children were murdered this afternoon. School only has two days left.
It has been chaos down at Robb Elementary, so the numbers could rise overnight.
