WAUWATOSA, Wis. -- A melee at a Kmart store in Wauwatosa Saturday morning was started by a computer glitch.
The store was running a promotion in which it would give away $10 to anyone applying for its credit card, but the computer glitch led to everyone's application being granted -- bestowing up to $4,000 in instant credit to anyone who applied even if they shouldn't have qualified.
Once word started to spread about the so-called "free money" Saturday, witnesses said things got pretty nuts inside the Wauwatosa store.
"They were having a big fight. Two ladies was jumping a lady over credit cards," witness Sylvester Wilson said.
Nearly a dozen Wauwatosa squad cars responded to the call just before 11 a.m. Saturday for what was called a large fight in progress.

What would a dog do with a credit card? Now let's say that K-Mart was accidently giving away cooked bacon, then you would see dog fights.
Are you kidding? Dogs are freeloaders. They never do any work that produces either a product or revenue, they sleep most of the day and all of the night, yet they get free meals and snacks, and free massages any time they demand them.
The only exceptions are true guard dogs and actual cattle/sheep herding dogs. They work for their perks. (Maybe some show dogs, too, if they earn money, rather than just ribbons.
(I am the owner of a Golden Retriever who fits the description in the first paragraph above. So there.)
I forgot the smiley winky face.
Re: Dogs are freeloaders.
Huh? They want to serve. I trained mine to get the newspaper every morning.
At least they weren’t dropping turkeys out of a helicopter.
Maybe they SHOULD be dropping turkeys from a helicopter. Frozen ones.
K-Marks got some good stuff when it be free.
I was kidding. See #24.

You forgot hunting dogs who put food on the table and do double duty as guard dogs all year!
Do cancel the card.
yes - Sears used Citigroup (I think) for their card administration, and with the diminishing returns on Sears cards, Citi took it and turned everyone’s into Master Cards.
I called the cancel-my-new-card number on the new card they sent, then cut up the card (Did you know you can get more than 50 pieces of plastic outta ONE card!!!) (But you have to be moticated! ;-P)
Oh yeah? Well MY dog not only fetches the newspaper, she tears it into tiny bits and pees on it as well! (Good doggie!)
Thanks for posting this one. I live in the area, but FR is the first place I go to catch up on the news. Since I didn't turn on the radio yet this a.m. I hadn't heard about this one. Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to Milwaukee and the surroundings.
(But everyone who owns a freeloader knows what I’m talkin’ ‘bout.)
P. S. I’m just kidding. Nobody should take any of this freeloader-dogs stuff seriously.
“Someone who shops there and who is perfectly willing to steal and cares not at all about ever having a good credit rating and who intends never to pay for the goods they’ve charged.”
Nice smear of Kmart and people who have Kmart charge cards. I guess Sears, JC Penny, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. are all havens for miscreants to obtain charge cards too.
I did not smear Kmart nor all people who have Kmart charge cards. You have posted nonsense.
( The difference between dogs and Dawgs is the latter work for a living..lol)
