Arrest Made in N.J. Walmart 'All Black People' Case
afroafroafroafro

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Police say they have made an arrest in the case of a racial comment being made over the public-address system at a Walmart store in southern New Jersey.

The Washington Township Police Department said on its Web site early Saturday that an arrest has been made in a "bias incident" at the retail store. The posting says the police and Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office will announce the arrest at a midday news conference.

Washington Township Police declined to comment early Saturday.

A male voice came over the Walmart public address system Sunday evening and calmly announced: "Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now." The announcement provoked an immediate apology from the store manager.

Officials for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said the announcement was "unacceptable."

Yeah for some reason the employees at WalMart get totally pissed when you mess with the intercom system.

On further reflection...
I'll bet they will try to hit him with racial incitement and a hate crime. Both could be very nasty felonies.

This whole thing would be a non story if he had asked that all white, or hispanics, or asian, or ... peoples leave the store. Blacks are always the ones to get their national panties ruffled when some stupid person slights their race. Is this really how most blacks identify themselves, by race? I don't think so! But this is what the media and their black agitators always seem to try to ferment. It was a stupid prank people!

He could have accomplished the same thing by announcing quart or litre take-out beer specials at the front entrance. Or...perhaps discounts on new wheels/rims...

all corrupt politicians please step forward so we may put the rope around your neck..

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms.

It would have caused some confusion if they where 'redneck enough' to be identified as different in a walmart, but everyone would have just joked about it. point taken poster!

I feel ya. In fact, I know exactly what you're saying. I'm sure it's comparable to some of the more remote places here in Maine like Aroostook County, Rumford, Oxford, etc... Definitely some *interesting* people.

My first thought when I saw the headline was that if this was anywhere near the northeast side then there were probably a lot of black people actually IN the store, though.

Just playing devil's advocate. I realized I couldn't stop racism a long time ago so I'm not really emotionally vested in this.

Yep, I think it's also a common misconception that there are only rednecks in the south.

Re: Arrest Made in N.J. Walmart 'All Black People' Case
Wonder how they nailed him? Security tapes? Eyewitnesses? Family/friends ratting him out? Individual remorse motivating him to step forward and recieve his (probably draconian)punishment?

I think the case could be made that the boy was a performance artist, pointing out in a very existential way the prejudices and injustices of society. If I were his lawyer, I'd be tempted to try that route.

Yeah it probably wasn't even a call for racially black people to leave, it probably was some gang of thieves moving on to their next location or something.

People always think so literally and that is sad.
