So California has a law stating you cannot record anything that occurs on their premises.


of course they don't, and it seems like a clear contradiction on its face.

but video surveillance of private property doesn't quite have the same oomph in front of a judge as a retail establishment extracting biometric data from customers to be stored perhaps permanently would.

That would assume premeditation on your part, which would be a crime. I didn't read the article, but if this guy was killed intentionally as punishment for stealing, obviously that's not going to go unpunished.

Nah I won't shoot to kill, I'll just open fire with the intent to slow you down to the speed limit. If you happen to die, I don't really see the issue.

Take a photo of their face....install face recognition software and scan every face. Put initial shoplifters in database...get a hit? Ask them to leave immediately or face prosecution for the first offense.


sounds cheap.

And Walmart being the big loving corporation they are would not pass that expense to the consumer.

Right... so why the need for anywhere between 30-50 roof-mounted cameras scanning the outside of the building?

If he was stealing food, I might have a little more sympathy for this situation...

maybe he was going to sell it to get money for food

still, dvd players really aren't worth choking someone to death over

Not likely... there are places that offer cheap/free food... not to mention the government programs that help people in that kind of need...

Most likely, he had a drug habit or just really wanted a DVD player... Sure, none of us know for sure...

I'm not justifying his death, but sometimes when you play with fire you get burned...

I'm tired of having pity for criminals that are caught red-handed committing their crimes... Especially so in cases of material theft and violent crimes.

Black friday is a miserable event, my wife forced me to go once and I swore I would never ever do it again. All that chaos to get a deal, nope, not for me....

Actually, they wouldn't. Retail is cut throat competition. Raising their prices could cost them a lot more than simply paying out a lawsuit. Walmart does more than 400 billion a year in revenue. A few million is NOTHING to them.

Yeah, having worked at Walmart they teach you not to attempt to apprehend thieves. Even though the dude was attempting to steal a DVD player, his family is now likely to become millionaires.

Which is bullshit.

Go commit a crime and sue when the store dares to stop you.

I feel for the guy. However, if he did not enter that store with the intent to commit a crime, none if this would have happened.
