Remember when I blogged about
Safeway Riskyway having a pregnant woman and her husband arrested over $5 worth of sandwiches that they forgot to pay for, resulting in their 2-year old daughter "briefly" (i.e. for 18 hours) being placed in the care of predators kidnappers CPS?
Then I emailed them to express my disgust at their zero tolerance policies, asking them to disclose the reports by the Department of Weights and Measures, since I am sure every single
Safeway Riskyway store across the country overcharges patrons by much more than $5 every single day? Of course, they would not share those records with me. I need to to contact the DWM about that - surely, customers should have access to this information to allow them to chose the most honest store.
In the meantime,
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — A grocery store security guard was fired after he told the father of a 4-year-old girl that she would face criminal charges for eating from a dried fruit package, a TV station reported.
The child's mother, Alissa Jones, said the father wasn't looking when the girl grabbed the package, ate a few pieces of fruit then returned it to a shelf at a Safeway store in Everett, Wash., KOMO reported Wednesday.
In Washington, the guard took the 4-year-old and her dad to a room and said the girl would face charges and be banned from the chain, Jones said, adding the guard had the girl sign a paper acknowledging she wasn't allowed to enter any Safeway stores.
The guard was subsequently fired. He is probably seeking employment with the police department now, since losers like him usually become security guards or cops.
