Boycott TitleWalmart bans customer who protects child from abuse
Boycott DescriptionMy son recently witnessed a child being abused in Walmart, Wilkes Barre PA. He approached the child abuser and warned that he would contact police. She of course became irate. He contacted police and while waiting for police to arrive, he remained in the same area as the abuser to ensure that he could point her out when police arrived. The abuser realized that he was monitoring her actions, and went to customer service to report my son and was escorted out by three undercover personnel. My son attempted to speak to the undercover to explain what had happened, only to be told that he needed to leave. He did not leave because he wanted to make sure that, again, he could point this woman out to police. The undercover personnel did everything they could in an attempt to intimidate and bully. They threatened a charge of harassment. When the police arrived, they spoke to my son and mostly to the undercover security and ultimately, my son was then presented with a document that he was told he HAD to sign. The document stated that if he is found on the property in the next three years, he would be charged with trespassing. In summary, because Walmart's undercover security staff acted inappropriately, and disregarded my son's attempt to obtain assistance for this small child, he is now banned from entering Walmart. Walmart staff treated my son as a criminal, and offered "protection" to a child abuser. Please join the boycott. Do not frequent a store that accepts such behavior from their employees.
Boycott DemandsTake incidents of child abuse in stores seriously. Educate staff (particularly undercover security) about how to properly handle reports of child abuse. Educate staff (particularly undercover staff) to take statements from all involved in such an incident. Hire mature, responsible staff who are able to handle such incidents.
