Love it. Hate the greeters, pretending to spread human cheer when they're really doing it for the money.

Wouldn't you like to have a say on the punishment for this guy? How about 2 years in jail to think about it. Hell, a young man just died from a punch, so lets give this guy 5 years to sit and think it over. 5 years!

Most of the stores we shop in now have little to no help. When you do ask someone for help, most of the time they have no idea where items are in the store that they work at.
It is refreshing to have someone greet you and give you guidance as to where items may be located. For someone to abuse this person regardless of age, deserves to spend some time in prison to see what it is like to get your face punched in or even more.

Wal-Mart greeters are there to greet people coming into the store and they also serve as first line security in that they are visually checking the people who come in the store out. Every greeter I have ever encountered has always been pleasant and made the experience better by putting a smile on my face.

Lets hope this bully gets the stiffest sentence possible...Trust me, I have other choicer names for this person that hit the elderly man,but I cant use them here.And the the guy who posted earlier that said good that the man got hit,because he hates greeters has a real big problem too.
The poor elderly getleman is trying to spread good cheer in what is suppose to be a joyous season and he gets punched and facial bones broken.god,what have we become?

Some greeters need this job to help with their small income from social security and pay for their health care. Let the guy who got punched hit the other guy back and see how he likes it.Wal-mart should pay for all his bills because he was only doing his job. At least this man has a job.

Now would be an excellent time for the gentle readers of this forum to go to PeopleOfWalmart dot com, where you will find pictures of the worst scum and villainy shopping at WalMart all through the US.

Only the truly vile shop at WM...

My Walmart has the nicest little ole lady at the exit on Saturday mornings... Her special customers get her warm smiling face, a blessing and a hug on the way out! It's nice to know that some people still care about each other!

And as far as I am concerned... they don't pay her enough for the joy she brings to others!

Mr Junior you got to be out of your mind, if the 72 year old victim, would hit back if offered, for one he would not sucumb to the fool that hit him, and for two if the old man hit back, he would break his hand, don't you know old peoples hands, can easily break off.

Most undoubtedly the poor excuse for a human being that hit this elderly man was angry over something and just took it out on the first thing that he saw and unfortunately it was this elderly man.

This conduct should grant this dirt-bag criminal at least five yrs. in the state pen for attempted murder. I am so glad that the scum was apprehended immediately. Ba-ba, do your thing!!!

I was thinking the same thing.

I've worked in retail and in other areas of customer service, but never had to deal with anybody trashy enough to sucker punch an elderly man or greedy and cheap enough to trample a temp to death for some piece of Chinese-made crap then bitch when the store gets closed for a few hours.

When you undercut all your competition, you attract the cheapest schmucks out there. Often these cheap schmucks are also heartless and classless.
