Police: Arrest in NJ Walmart racial comment case - Yahoo! News
What crime was committed?
This won't go anywhere. It was a stupid joke that people over reacted to. Save this crap for real racial bias cases
Would be interesting if it were a black guy with the SEIU.
Well if the guy who did it was not employed there they ahve a pretty damn good case against him.
A case for what?
A customer is not allowed to just walk into the back room and pick up the overcom.
It would be called tresspass and then they could add slander and defamation of charactor in court.
Is racial harassment a crime?
You think Walmart would press charges? LOL what an moron. Walmart doesnt even press charges against first time shop lifters. They are held for the police where the police tell them if they are ever caught on the property again they will be charged with criminal trespass. How do I know this, being in the business I am in, I deal with the Store Managers on a daily bacis. I have seen LP bring the people in and the next thing you know they are being lead off the property if and when they are caught. The LP dept heads say they dont have time to go to court or worry about the legal end of it. Easier to ban them from the property and hope they comply.
Suspension or firing the person would make more sense. Probation (Job not criminal), with a public apology and community service also works.
The guy chose to do very poor and misguided joke, it WAS a stupid mistake, and it backfired on him, BUT, I would say this, some folks just gotta LIGHTEN UP. Want to see how black comedians make fun of white people and others? Try Youtube. I think some are very funny and do not see any racial harassment issues because of it.
We don't see any white people running to the FCC, ACLU, lawyers and law enforcement screaming 'racial harassment' then demanding a "White Entertainment Network" or a Miss White Universe Contest" or a "Miss White America Contest" or a "White Governors Conference". Seems if it's a white person, all hell breaks loose.
Lighten up Folks, we have more real problems than race, we're all member of the human race and identical under the skin for Chit sakes
