Yeah death penalty for minor crimes. What's the issue? If I see you speeding by 3 miles per hour, I'm going to pull out my gun and kill you. It's a perfectly reasonable solution.

yeah that sounds uncontroversial

also if wal mart was serious about pursuing that policy they could no longer operate in california thanks to their 1990 state law that prohibits merchants from recording "personally identifiable information". their state supreme court is very serious about enforcing it and they've repeatedly ruled against businesses that try to collect stuff like addresses and zip codes. i'd say snapping a photo of the face of every person who steps on wal mart property would go a bit beyond that.


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

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.

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.

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.
