    Then why doesn't this happen everywhere?

    This is also very, very true.

    So you think its the retailers fault?

    The incidents of it happening are generally so isolated and rare that the only way they seem common is because when it happens, it hits the internet because it's good clickbait.

    I'm not saying it's common; I'm just offering an explanation for why it happens when it does.

    This is also a good point. Imagine if the internet had been around during civil rights?

    Kobie, officer involved shootings are rare as well-and yet thats not the narrative presented. Its interesting you can apply this logic here, but not there.

    Your silly debate tactics might work on the more simple minded, but not me. I'm not going to waste my time with your silliness.

    From a larger societal issue? They have a hand in creating the environment of instant gratification. They provide it. When they take it away, people react. Doesn't mean it's the retailer's fault over specific actions: it's not. But the larger societal issue? They are part of creating it.
