Jury Finds that Wal-Mart Sucks

Katoria Lee refused a carjacker's command to surrender her car-keys in 2001, so he shot her in the back. This, a Georgia state court jury decided, was the fault of Wal-Mart, who owned the parking lot where the shooting occurred. Eric Deown Riggins, 22, was caught within minutes, and is serving a 15-year sentence in state prison for the crime.

Lee's attorney, Lance Cooper, mentioned the 398 visits by police to the Riverdale Wal-Mart in the twenty months before the accident as evidence that there should have been "more" security that made Wal-Mart at fault for a third-party's malicious crime...

To the tune of $4.+ million dollars...

How would they feel about the Franklin Wal-Mart were there is a police sub-station in the store?
