The old saying: "Read it and Weep," truly applies to this funny, yet so sad story. Enjoy this story, but have a handkerchief nearby as you realize what a _ _ _ _ _ _ up country we have created for ourselves. (fill in the blanks yourselves)


    Source: Wal-Mart bans man for life for matching ads- MSN Money

    Copy:




    If Walmart makes savings to its customers available through such advertising and PR campaigns and then calls the police merely because customers get good at playing their marketing game, then that's Walmart's problem not the customers who play the game well. Poor ole Cantrell, can no longer do what he likes to do: Beat the stores at their own game.

    Here's what I propose since this is after all a politically driven forum: Americans should place a LIFETIME ban on Walmart and its immoral business practices. That way, Walmart can no longer practices its hobby of selling crappy products to American Customers! And, did you notice the embedded link from MSN to Investor Place, showing Walmart being sued for selling crappy gas cans?

    The hit parade of insanity, greed, slave labor and customer-hate never seems to end with Walmart.
    WalMart does not have a history of this sort of behavior, quite the opposite in fact, but we do know that there is a war on WalMart by the Unions and this story, during the Christmas shopping season, is probably being promoted by them and their sympathizers. The final sentence of "The hit parade of insanity, greed, slave labor and customer-hate never seems to end with Walmart".

    We know this is rubbish so I'm guessing that the rest of the story is as well.

Without a detailed statement or a video all we've got a is big bathtub filled with screw-all.

    I believe a company with as much iffy PR as Walmart would move to clear its name as quickly as humanly possible, yet they haven't released the footage to the press. There could be extenuating reasons for why they haven't, but my skepticism is at roughly 9 right now.
    The sheriff's dept was quoted in the link.

    Yeah, I don't trust a word of it.

Seems to me he ought to have a law suit against Walmart for banning him under false pretenses as well as false reports to the police, depending on whose story you choose to believe. I for one don't trust Walmart and am more likely to believe the man. I wonder if there were any witnesses.

    The video just says "An error occurred" so I can't watch. I'll try later, but it looks like the video may have been pulled. Please tell me what it shows, iyo. Did the man act out in such a way as to need the police called?

    Well, no, actually that is pretty far from the only possible reason. It is in fact one of possibly thousands of possible reasons.

    Police Say "Banned From Walmart For Life" Story is All Wrong - Coupons in the News

    This is, without a doubt, the least ambiguous condemnation by the police on the story. I'm outta here.

    From your link:
    That said, one could argue that every Walmart shopper has the right to expect that their stores will not completely make up their own rules about ad matching. Not to excuse any alleged bad behavior, but the unanswered question is, why was Cantrell told that “only eggs and milk were on ad match, due to all the Black Friday ads”? There are no such exceptions listed on Walmart’s corporate ad match policy, and no indication that individual stores are given such wide latitude to pick and choose how they implement the chainwide “ad match guarantee”.

    Cantrell may not have been banned for ad matching, strictly speaking. But the seemingly arbitrary ad match policy of this particular Walmart is what prompted the alleged argument that ultimately led to the “ban for life.” So ad matching is still a crucial part of the story here
    So apparently even the police approved reporting shows that it all started with Walmart not honoring it admatching commitment.

    Well, some of those Wal Mart customers are pretty scary looking, especially the big fat women in short shorts. I don't blame the manager.

    Lots of people ad match at Wal Mart, so I doubt that's the reason for the ban.

    It's amazing to me how liberals want to ruin a good thing helping poor people in the community by providing goods at really low prices. It's almost like they don't really care about poor people and have no real experience with them.

    Please give me any report that shows it started with anything else.
