    How can you make excuses for people stealing from a store, and you have no idea who these people are.

    If you look at the picture, I can tell you, most of them are dressed much nicer tan anything I have in my closet.

    I challenge you to find one person that did this that actually needed what they took.
    If you think I said they needed what they took, you have comprehension problems.

    If they didn't need it then why did they take it? Just to get back at society? You are making excuses for those people?

    I don't hate you or anyone else but I damn sure hate the pathetic weakness of your arguments and your view of your fellow man - shame on you.
    Be that as it may, but it simply means your available privilege is probably tons higher than it is for those folks. Hell, even comparing me, a homeless white old lady,...I have more available privilege than these folks because I'm white, and educated, and originally from a wealthy-ish family. I'm homeless in order to not be on the dole, as I take the time required to find truly where I want to be without crashing my funds entirely, so I'll still have a nut when I find that place, and get my biz set up. See, how I see think due to the nature of my privilege? But to suggest that folks that are raised three families deep in two bedroom homes and all that goes with that, should be expected to have my level of optimism and faith in themselves and their ability to succeed well enough to even have a home with only one family in it??? In my opinion it would take a lot hate to not see the difference and to not allow oneself to at understand, not promote, not encourage, but simply understand why they might cut loose in such a fashion given the situation.

    Perhaps though as I type this, the level of opportunity privilege you and I have does seem to put in places where we really don't have to see anything we don't want to... is that ignorance maybe instead of hatred. .. maybe.

    I read exactly what you wrote.

    You are making excuses because of some assumption on your part that these people have in some way been excluded from society or they have had obstacles put in their way that other, honest people have not. You have no way of knowing that.

    These people are thieves and nothing more. You can't make excuses for criminals. If this happened again, they would do it again. It is just who they are.

    Still you do not comprehend what I wrote. Closer though.

    Because "free".

    Some of them might have needed some of it, but I doubt all of them needed all they chose.

    American: one way or the other--and it really doesn't matter which way you look at this--Walmart had complete control over this.

This is no different than Black Friday and people running over one another to get to deals--it's the store's responsibility to manage the store and customer safety.

    Yep. I see it in rich people not wishing to pay their fair share of taxes and sending their money to off shore accounts. Dag gone rabid thieves.

    What is plain and simple is that Walmart and the people who made those purchases are equally culpable. Both parties knew that the cards had limits and that a glitch caused those limits to be lifted. Both parties conspired to defraud the government knowing the aforementioned facts. The only difference is that Walmart knew there were procedures to follow but chose to enable and encourage fraud instead. The best you can say for Walmart is that they were too lazy to call Xerox and didn't want to decline sales. Doesn't make them any less guilty.

    Nonsense.

    Please explain for everyone how WalMart accesses the available balance on these cards for each customer who enters their stores and presents the card for payment.

    Please tell us the reaction of liberals if WalMart had refused to accept EBT cards from poor Americans.

    As I said previously, the only people who had direct knowledge of their available balance and knew beyond any doubt that they were cheating and stealing were the people who chose to use the cards fraudulently, knowing well that they were cheating the system and stealing.

    Nobody, no company, forces the immoral and dishonest to be criminal - they choose that path themselves, regardless of how many bleeding heart apologists on the left wish to excuse their immorality and dishonesty.
