    “The brawl lasts nearly five minutes. Walmart security is not shown in the video.”

    So why are they called ‘security’?
    *_5_* minutes, and not one ‘security’ person showed up????
    Or do they have orders not to interfere in the squabbles of customers, just observe & report to police?

      First of all walmart has loss prevention not security. Why blame walmart and not the person video taping, who could of called police plus it says not shown in video doesnt mean they didnt show up after the clip.

      Amen mkegal,I was wondering the same thing. Maybe it was Barney Fife security and he forgot to put his bullet in his pocket.

      A) Walmart doesn’t have actual security
      B) If they were to intervene it would be a guaranteed lose of their jobs.

      I worked at Walmart for a year and the Loss Prevention people have a very strict set of rules and guidelines they have to follow to keep their jobs and prevent lawsuits.

      She is probably getting SSI, welfare, or workers comp for some BS reason and is scamming the system. I hope one of those agencies sees this.

    What kind of mother does that in front of her child and to top it off telling him to hit another grown woman.. He is 6 and what is wrong with all these people sitting here watching that and not getting the little boy away regardless of what was going on! Everyone has a responsibility as a role model and sitting and watching, let alone videoing it and standing by doing nothing is insane!

      I take offense to that! I am a WalMart shopper and would NEVER dream of behaving this way in OR outside of the store. And if I was ever in a WalMart with my child and we came across something like this, I would quickly get my child away from the scene and call 911. I’ve seen plenty of “white trash” in other stores that are competitors to WalMart. Don’t assume all WalMart shoppers are trash!

    why blot out the boy’s face? every mother in the community should know who he is so they can have their own kids stay away from that monster.

    I think that they should ban Walmarts from society.
    Walmart appears to be even more dangerous than guns are.

    WalMart doesnt have security, they have asset protection. Furthermore, no walmart employee is ever allowed to lay hands on a customer for any reason lest they risk lising their job.
