Let it be known: Louisiana officials are trying to decide what to do about a massive shopping spree by families on food stamps when a power outage lifted the caps on their spending cards.
Police were called to Walmart locations in Mansfield, La., and Springhill, La., on Saturday as shoppers cleaned out store shelves.
Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd said some customers were pushing more food than any household could store in a refrigerator and freezer.
"I saw people drag out eight to "Ten Grocery Carts," he said
The Point to watch: A power outage lifted the caps on their Spending Cards - They sure know how to Beat The System - For they have nothing to lose!! I am surprised that they did not buy up the stores!!!
Finally, who is to bear the loss, Walmart or the Taxpayers??
