    But it is indeed possible that when you are talking about literally over a million shoplifters being apprehended every year at Walmarts, and given the dangers of any physical altercation, that there is just some small, expected number of deaths that are going to occur. Its the same as kids dying while practicing on high school sports teams, or people dying while walking the dog. If you have big enough numbers, fluky things will create finite numbers of bad events. Right now, this minute, there are likely more than one million people at a Walmart somewhere. Of course, over time, all sorts of both good and bad unusual things will happen to small numbers of those people, with little to nothing to do with the official policies of the company.
