Alleged Customer Sues Over 2010 Racist Walmart PA Prank
The Consumerist ^ | May 25, 2012 | Laura Northrup

Posted on 05/27/2012 12:01:35 PM PDT by kevcol

Loyal Consumerist readers and retail-watchers may remember the 2010 incident in which a 16-year-old took over the PA system of a New Jersey Walmart and announced, "Attention Walmart customers: all black people must leave the store." The prankster had done the same thing a few months before, and was charged with harassment and bias intimidation for each incident. Now, more than two years later, someone has filed a lawsuit against the store over the incident. He claims to have been in the store at the time of the prank, and that the incident led to "depression, anxiety, anger, loss of sleep and appetite, paranoia, and antisocial tendencies."

Yes, the man who filed the suit is black.

The lawsuit claims that by not securing the public address system, the Washington Township Walmart was negligent and reckless and showed deliberate indifference.

Because we love you almost as much as we love public records, here is a copy of the complaint in all of its PDF glory.

This reminds me of what happens when there's a fender-bender with a City Bus in Chicago, or an incident on the EL (elevated train).

This is the same type of scam, and a scam it is. THAT you can bet the rent on.

[You can use your imagination as to the color of the 'injured' that wind up seeking relief in court.]

Maybe we should file a class action suit against this guy claiming he wee-weed us all off so bad we all put our anxiety-traumatized fists through our computers, and need new ones.

They are suing the store instead of the person who did it, lol.

Why not sue the whole country too?

Same thing happened around 20 years ago in Brooklyn. A city bus crashed with about 6 people on it, but a store surveillance camera caught about 20 individuals running up to the bus trying to get in and claim they were on it.

Every second that Obama has been in office has led to “depression, anxiety, anger, loss of sleep and appetite, paranoia, and antisocial tendencies.”

Yep it was a nationwide scam for 'certain groups'. So now, that may be the only good thing with cities putting up their spy cameras every block. It'll put an end to these freeloaders looking for a Big Payday.

In the olden days those not named on any PD, or EMT Report could always say they didn't think they were hurt then and walked away. Or the Cops and Paramedics were too busy and missed them, etc, etc. So what was easier, a city cutting a check for $20K or $50K to make them go away or fighting them all in court and MAYBE losing Millions due to the 'jury pool'.

But now with surveillance cameras everywhere it's, 'game over'.

Perhaps both White and Black conservatives should file a class action suit against ALL race baiters.

Got a feeling if he's got all those problems, he should sue his momma for naming him Donnell. That's cruel !!!
