    So some ******* was trying to sneak out without paying for something and responded violently when confronted. Hopefully he is punished to the full extent of the law.

    That you posted this "to see where the discussion goes" suggests that you believe there is more to it than what is detailed in the article. Watching the video, the assailant is a black man and the victim is an elderly Sikh, but the article doesn't mention any verbal exchange that would suggest race or religion was a relevant factor. So what's the take away?

    I don't think all occurrences of douchebaggery can be contributed mental illness.

    Not true. At least here locally they're posted at all entrances and double as recipe/returns checkers.

    WalMart still has greeters. Though HERE they tend to be younger, tougher, and meaner. The old people are put in the garden center.

    That's why you always carry a walking cane with a shotgun on bottom.

    I wonder if this guy punched the greeter because said guy was shoplifting, because the greeter was Sikh (probably mistaken for a Muslim), or because the guy's just a useless waste of space who needs to get his life in order. Probably all three.

    Just another jerk being a jerk. Glad he was caught and will be punished per the law.


    As others have pointed out, many of the headlines/stories in the OP link are quite disturbing for their range of human sadism. :(

    On a brighter note, when thinking of shoplifters, I always liked this story. ;)
