    Despite several deaths, several lost lawsuits and being told how to change their policies to avoid further instances, they have not changed their policies in that way.

    Thus, no, I'm not going to cut them any slack on this.

    If the "stuff happens" theory were accurate, we'd see stories in the many thousands per year, because there are millions upon millions of retailers throughout the nation. Most of them do not have the "try to apprehend" policy that Walmart has, and thus we do not hear about thousands of dead customers a year nationwide. Walmart is culpable for knowingly continuing to have a policy that leads to customers being killed by their employees.
