Things are pretty messed up in this country. This woman deliberately laced human food in a retail store with rat poison and admits to it, so she gets arrested and then released on the same day "on her own recognizance". By what standards does any court determine that this woman is not an immediate danger to society? Nice touch that they prohibited her from going into any K-Mart or grocery store. I'm sure she wouldn't dream of doing something she knows she isn't supposed to do.

A company spokeswoman told the newspaper that Wyndham no longer works at the store.

Given the court's absurd response to this crime, I guess the company found it necessary to state the obvious.

It's funny that you attributed that "statement of the obvious" to the company... whereas I would have attributed it to the reporter who would have asked the obvious question, "Mr. Company Spokesman, is the poisoner still an employee of your store?"... and then felt compelled to report that obvious.

Sadly, both are a statement on how things are not as obvious as they should be in today's messed up society, that the question had to be asked at all, and that it needed to be reported on. To rational people, IT'S OBVIOUS.

PS: Humans are messed up. A dog would never intentionally poison anyone. :-)
