A Walmart in South Carolina Stays Open After a Worker Was Murdered [POLL]
Earlier in the week a Walmart in Oklahoma was in the news about a woman cooking meth in the aisles for over SIX HOURS before someone spotted her. Granted the woman shouldn’t have been cooking meth inside the store to begin with, but how was she able to stand there for that long with no one wondering what she was doing. Now a Walmart in South Carolina is catching some heat after not closing the store after a worker was murdered in the store.
Its seems to be impossible to get Walmart to close. Holidays, Black Friday, Murders, none of that will get the store to turn off their lights.
On Saturday, 38-year-old Lila Blandin of Simpsonville, South Carolina was working at a bank inside a Walmart in Greenville, South Carolina. Her husband, 46-year-old Avery Blandin, showed up . . . and they started arguing. There’s no word on what they were arguing about, but it was serious . . . because he ended up stabbing her to death.
I would think during any event like this any place, no matter who you are would shut down. WRONG. Walmart and the police taped off the crime scene and people continued shopping while the bank was covered in blood. A Walmart spokeswoman sort of danced around the question of why they stayed open.
“We did, as requested, close our grocery checkout area to allow the police to do their work and provide some level of privacy, given the circumstances.”
What about respect for the woman who was just murdered by her husband? The well being of the other shoppers coming into the store as they were removing the body from the store? By the way, the husband was caught as he was trying to getaway and he is being charged with murder. Am I over-reacting? Take the poll below or comment below and share your opinion!
