Quote: 'The coroner said Blandin was an employee of Woodforest Bank inside the Walmart store, and was working at the time of the incident". This might sound crazy but does anyone think that because Lillia Blandin was an employee of Woodforest Bank working inside the Walmart store, working in an contracted office space leased on a monthly basis by Walmart to Woodforest Bank, a banking business not associated with Walmart except for the lease, maybe part of the manager's decision making...

The only reason I can think of for not closing the store where an incident that resulted in a murder took place is plain 'ol simple GREED!!! Why else would you think it's okay for people you want to make a good impression on - shoppers spending their money with you - to see another human being's BLOOD all over a section of your place of business?? And that's a damn freakin' shame!! I hope that store is sued (or boycotted) out of existence!!!!

sunnubian, you're correct but knowing how managers think, this person was straight panicking and thought about how in the world do I remove all the shoppers/employees and close this place?...even for a few hours? Hundreds of shoppers and employees everywhere...coming in and going out..Walmart employees...vendors making deliveries....electronics, bathrooms, McDonalds, nail shop, eyeglass shop, home & gardens, full parking lot, grocery store, at the cashier checkout etc...And I know that...

I was in my local Wal-Mart store once when all of the electricity went out ... and, apparently, the generators didn't kick in. They cleared the store and put us out until the problem was corrected. I later found out that the MAIN reason for that was because the store's cameras and security devices were off-line and they felt they could not adequately guard against massive THEFT during that time. It was closed for about 30 minutes. And then ... it was back to 'shopping as usual'!! However ...

Quote by ER: "In both instances, we were asked to "wait patiently" as it would only be a "few minutes" (more like 20+!!) before they could resume business!!" Bottom Line: Walmart, the #1, 24 hour, 365 all anything, everything you need, one stop shopping original big box store...AIN"T gonna close for no reason whatsoever!...Not even for death! Did you know that Walmart sells caskets and urns online? http://www.usatoday.com/money/...caskets-online_N.htm

This is clear testimony of where we are headed as a country. I remember a scene in one of those Jesus xmas stories where a murder occurred in the market place and like Walmart folks still wanted to continue selling merchandise inspite of the heinous crime. The joy and true meaning is simply PLUCKED out of the holiday season which is similar to the harvest time of year celebrated for bringing forth food abundance. But! I see it all the time. Brothas rather ride in those high profile vehicles...

(This is what materialism has brought America to . . . we are now so lost in our worship of the almighty dollar and materialism that we don't even stop shopping when a human being has been murdered in the store while we are shopping, and the store does not even attempt to clear out shoppers and close down while blood is all over the floor and walls and the police are there securing the crime scene over a dead body. Damn.) Coroner Identifies Woman Stabbed To Death At Walmart Deputies Have Man...
