Yesterday as we started off the show, I read a story that really got on my nerves.
Donnell Battie from New Jersey is suing Wal-Mart for one million dollars after someone hijacked the intercom system and said something that caused Donnell “emotional distress.”
TWO YEARS AGO on March 14, 2010, a 16-year-old, (who was not an employee) went on the intercom and said, “Attention Wal-Mart customers: All black people leave the store now.”
The manager quickly went on the intercom system and apologized for what happen and the cops were called to arrest the 16-year-old on harassment and bias intimidation charges.
Donnell says that the announcement has led to depression, anxiety, anger, loss of sleep and appetite, paranoia, anti-social tendencies and loss of enjoyment in activities and that he is suing Wal-Mart because they were negligent to let this happen in the first place.
I think this jerk of a lawyer is negligent for taking this case! I am embarrassed to be a citizen of a country that allows people to sue over things as ridiculous as this!
Is your skin that thin that you can’t understand that a jerk is just being a jerk?
I feel bad for Wal-Mart; yes they’ve made mistakes like any other company has but they seem to be the target for everything. They have apologized and said they would do everything in their power to make sure this doesn’t happen again and that is completely reasonable.
I would like to get on the intercom and say: Attention shoppers, anyone with thin skin please leave the store now!
