I spent 18 years working at the Wal-Mart Corporate Office in Bentonville, Arkansas. What I can tell you is that the company takes a lot of pride in it's Loss Provention program out in the stores. They are very keen on their "Code Adam" program. Whoa, but how embarrassing this must be! What if this could have been a child molester? Kidnapper? Rapist? Robber? Murderer?

Who was viewing all the many cameras that are strung up throughout the store? Someone should have gotten a little bit suspicious after this guy was in there for more than 3 hours, and that is putting it mildly. No, Wal-Mart isn't perfect, but after so many incidents throughout the last few years, including abductions, rape, and murder on store property, you would think that they would get a better grip on their security surveillence.

So they make light of it by announcing to the media that they are a retail organization, not a Hotel. I feel much better now. Come on Wal-Mart, take responsibility.
