    Who the hell knows anything from the simple fact that a few dudes died?
    They died in the name of cheap plastic crap made by de facto slaves on the other side of the world, living in squalor beyond your imagination.

    They died at the hands of Wal Mart employees performing their job duties.

    These are facts. Data are irrelevant.  Utterly.  Irrelevant.  Either you actively seek to obfuscate the issue or you're just an idiot.  I hope it's the latter.

      If the employee is responsible, all that means is that Walmart has a few bad employees. It does NOT tell you that Walmart has some policy that is more aggressive that appropriate. Any organization with 2.2 million employees is going to have some bad ones. That is all you can discern from such a tiny number of cases here.

      Let's face it, these days any diary with any bad info whatsoever about Walmart gets onto the rec list, and few people even question the substance of the rant. In this case, a company with 9,000 stores experiences a few shoplifter deaths. And people like you assume it must be some evil policy they have, without bothering to think through the math.
