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.
    Forget about the ad matching - how about the fact the guy was cuffed and charged with crimes because an employee felt "threatened."

    I don't give a **** how "threatened" that punk employee felt - that's not just cause to charge an individual with a crime...

    I blame progressives for this soft reality we live in where people are arrested and charged with a crime because they happen to feel threatened..

    I flippn' hate this country!

    No it isn't, being the point is that you are not allowed to just threaten people for random things that may displease you. The fact that this needs to be explained to an adult is rather scary to think about

    The employee said he "felt threatened" not that he was threatened......

    Besides, threatening someone is protected under the First Amendment. Its only a crime when the person that is making those threats makes good on their threat.

    This is 'he said, she said' nonsense....

    If I was the ad matcher I would sue Walmart AND that dumbass employee personally for slander and Walmart for libel and false advertising.

    "When I left, he turned around and called the Pinal County Sheriff's Office and said he felt intimidated and threatened," Cantrell told WXYZ. "I was upset, but never once did I say anything to the gentleman."
    Why can't you read?

    Walmart's are privately owned companies.

    As far as I am concerned, they should be able to ban anyone for any reason from their stores.

    Just as we should be able to do that in our homes.

    I completely understand where you're coming from and agree, however this guy did nothing wrong except exploit a Walmart policy and they can't ban him for that...

    This guy has a valid lawsuit against the employee for slander, Walmart for libel and false advertising....

    I hope this guy sues...

    BTW, I usually defend businesses, however in this case Walmart and their idiot employee is absolutely WRONG! That's not an opinion either that is a legal fact.

    Does anyone realize that any store can ban anyone from it's premises for any reason at any time?

    Ever saw one of these signs?
