A man suspected of shoplifting two DVD players from a Lithonia, Ga., Walmart today died after an altercation with two store employees and a contract security guard, prompting a police investigation.
The man, whose identity has not been released, exited through the front door of the store at 1:30 a.m. today and was confronted in the parking lot, according to DeKalb County police.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found the employees on top of the middle-aged man, according to a police report obtained by ABC News affiliate WSB-TV. When an officer bent down to handcuff the suspect, he noticed there was no resistance.
At that point, the officer noticed the suspect was bleeding from the nose and mouth, according to the report. He was transported to DeKalb Medical-Hillandale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
I'm sure this was what Sam Walton had in mind when he started Walmart!!! Well, this and all the crap from China, India, Vietnam, etc., not to mention the welfare burden on the rest of society.
So, let me get this straight. Welfare Mart employees are the new death panels? They decide which shoplifter lives and which dies? OMG, George Orwell would get a headache over this latest death at a Welfare Mart.
