Stupid and I see a lawsuit in this one! You have to be 110% to be sure a person stole something before detaining them!

I don't understand why the police ave to arrest the store manager for what? I think that the stealer should be sent one way out from this earth. In milwukee here, there are too many crimes. I personally know some store owner has been kill by stealer. If the thief has their way like this, they would come and steal some more. I think we should not pay any more tax for the city of milwaukee. Police and thief are blood brotherhood now.

You people are missing the point, she didn't steal anything. He just thought she stole something. He attacked an innocent woman. Whether she did or didn't steal anything, all he had to do is grab her and take her back to the store and then call the cops, and they would take care of the situation. He based his assumption that she stole something on her race, not because he actually saw her take something. If a white person had walked in that store and then left the store without buying anything, nothing would have been done. A black person walks in and does the samething, that person is automatically a shoplifter. He deserves to be arrested for attacking her. I hope he gets fired. I won't want to shop at a store that employs a manager who will attack me, if he thinks I stole something.

I hope the store offers to pay for her medical expenses and then some. The manager should go to jail for awhile and never work as a store employee again.

According to the police report she was cited for shoplifting and admitted to the police she had shoplifted. Has anyone considered the fact that maybe he didnt have a knife and that this was an accident? I've gone into that store many times and seen that he treats all of his customers equally. His staff is very racially diverse, white, black, hispanic...and they have all said he is a great guy and would never do somehting like this. Maybe we should remember that a person is innocent until proven guilty

Where does it say that she got cited for shoplifting? I have read and seen the news reports and nothing was said that she actually shoplifted. And besides, there were a few eye witnesses that stated they saw him attack her with a knife. Nothing in store is worth cutting someone up for. If someone is suspected of shoplifting, the proper procedure is to detain suspect if possible, and call the police, not chase after them with a box cutter.

Here we go again blame it a the race. I really don't care if your white or minority bottom line is pay for your items. Yes, he should have called the police. But do ANY of you or have any of you worked for Family Dollar?? I know people who have. I don't think it's right that he took it upon himself to chase her but I do understand why. Family Dollar has a HIGH theft rate and at inventory if their losses are to high the managers are let go. The managers/employees can't control the customers actions but they need to have the support from corporate. This company is cheap when it comes to the salaries of their managers/employees. Family Dollar expects a lot from their staff with their hands tied behind their backs. In my eyes you can compare Family Dollar to a third world country business.. They will suck the life out of their management/employees at store level.. With todays economy people do need to work and protect their jobs.(but not with box cutters) Who knows maybe she's been there before and stole and got away with it, he was now watching her. Maybe ALL Family Dollars should put in security cameras that work. Their lost inventory would cover the cost of cameras.. We are always going to have theft out there because not everyone is honest but with a camera you have proof. Family Dollar really needs to look at the whole picture here not just this store this can happen anywhere. The right hand needs to know what the left one is doing.

People, the story never said she actually stole anything. She even showed him that she didn't steal anything and he still cut her with the box cutter. He should be prosecuted as a hate crime, because he would have done that to a white person. Why do you people turn the story around to suit your comments? Eye witnesses all say that she DID NOT steal anything from the store. She was still in the store when he started to chase her. To steal something, you must actually attempt to leave the store without paying for it. Just because she is black doesn't automatically make her a thief. My daughter use to work part time at a Family Dollar store, and she had no problems at the store she worked at.

Freddy, just because people don't live in Milwaukee don't mean a thing. You are stereotyping all the people that do live there by the color of their skin and where they live. Not all black people are thieves and killers and drug dealers. The same goes for the people who live in the rougher neighborhoods. There are good and honest people who, for economic reasons, live where they live. So don't be judging them based on their skin color or where they live. Because crime exists everywhere and at every economic level. Even rich white people commit crimes. Just ask Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen.

A person doesn't have to be from Milwaukee to krow what people are like. Not all black people are thieves and killers and drug dealers. The same goes for people that live in the rougher neighborhoods. There are honest and decent people of all color that live there because of economic reasons. Being poor has no racial boundaries.Crime has no racial or economical boundaries either. How many times have you seen company executives being caught embezzeling from their companies, because of greed. And what about Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen who have been arrested for domestic abuse. I am sick and tired of people like Freddy and that store manager who base their assumptions on person's skin color or where they think the people live. God teaches to love one another, not hate each other.
