Customers staged a disturbance, took unpaid for groceries and walked out of a Mississippi Walmart after they were unable to use their food stamp cards on Saturday.
People in 17 states found themselves unable to buy groceries with their food stamp debit-style cards Saturday after a routine check by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure.
The mini riot, happened at the Walmart in Philadelphia, Miss. Shortly thereafter, managers decided to temporarily close the store.
For the safety of our customers we did make a management decision to close the store.
Were looking into everything; looking at surveillance video and working with the local police, said Kayla Whaling, a spokesperson for Walmart.
Whaling said the disturbance happened around 10:00 p.m. and the store reopened around 11:30 p.m. She also said she was not aware of any injuries.
Whaling said Walmart has not yet calculated the financial impact of the incident.
The Philadelphia Police Department was not immediately available to comment on the case.

You talking about welfare, food stamps etc I absolutely agree. But don't try lumping Social Security into those free ride entitlement programs. I have worked since I was 12 years old and paid Social Security taxes on every damn penny I ever made. Those funds were supposed to be held in trust for all of us, until we reached retirement. There should have been enough money plus earned interest in the Social Security fund to more than pay for seniors when they start drawing social security. The damn crooked government took the money and spent in on all their little pet projects for years and now the fund is going broke. I may not get a check until who knows when, but don't anyone dare call me a parasite, I've worked for every damn thing I've ever had.

Social security is a Ponzi scheme. 99% of the folks drawing social security get every penny they and their employer paid in back within 5 years. My folks dad paid very little on a low wage mom paid nothing. They lived into their 90,s. They drew over $300,000 from the fund. they where Parasite oxygen thieves for 30 years. Get out you work record and look at how much you actually paid in. And figure how much you have drawn. I would bet you have already recouped your investment and extra besides. You know if your a making producer or a Taking Parasite. I don't hafta tell you.
