The (in)Security at Wal-Mart sign now

I think that it's about time that we take back a little bit of the freedom that we've lost at the hands of the corporate beast known as Wal-Mart.

Is it me, or are others out there as sick and tired as I am of being treated as if we're criminals? For years now Wal-Mart has slowly and covertly slipped an invisible pair of handcuffs on all of their customers, labeling us as potential thieves. They have done this by doing something that I personally find irritating, irrational, paranoiac, and redundant. And that one thing is checking our bags against our receipts and making us walk through a detector (as if we're a threat to national security) that catches more mistakes by the cashiers than it does shoplifters.

Now tell me, has anyone else noticed the overabundance of cameras throughout the stores? Just exactly what the hell are these things for if not to catch shoplifters? Also, what are the security personnel doing if they're NOT looking for potential shoplifters, and where the hell are the "plain clothed" security personnel that most large retail stores hire? IF they're there and doing their job, WHY are we still subjected to the Wal-Mart equivalent of a "pat down."

It serves no purpose except to slow us down when all we want to do is go in, shop a little, get what we want, and leave (as quickly as possible). Not at Wal-Mart! We have to stand in a long line (especially around the holidays) while each and every person's receipt is compared to what's in their bag. And God help you if you're in a hurry and that damned detector goes off, because then you are going to wait extra long while they go through the persons bags to find what set it off, write it down, correct the problem, and then have the person go through the detector again (like a criminals through a metal detector), and THEN they can leave.

That detector is so annoying too. I can recite it in my sleep,... *DING* "We're sorry. You have activated Wal-Mart's inventory control system. Please step back, and associate will help you"

"Inventory control" my ass! It may as well say, "Stop! You are in violation of Wal-Mart security. We suspect you of shoplifting. Step back, empty your pockets and bags, and await search protocol."

I am so damned tired of this!

So to everyone out there who's just as tired as I am of this fiasco, post your grievances on this petition and tell Wal-Mart that you're not shopping there anymore until you're treated like an actual customer and not a potential thief, shoplifter or criminal.

Boycott Wal-Mart until we get our rights as CUSTOMERS back.

To Wal-Mart,

Tell the camera operators to wake the hell up and watch the screen. Tell the floor security personnel to get off their asses and actually patrol the store. And take down those damned detectors that make you feel three inches tall when it goes off on you and everyone looks at you as if you just robbed a bank.
