|Walmart bans customers from store after a video emerged of them fighting.|
Beech Grove, Indiana is a community surrounded by the city of Indianapolis.
The Beech Grove Police and Marion County Sheriff are shaking their heads in disgust over the incident in which two women get into a huge fight at a Walmart. One of the women told her six year old son to attack the other woman.
Walmart will automatically ban the women and child from every store in the country.
Allegedly one of the women claimed that the other said a racial slur. Amber Stephenson said that the woman told an employee that she's a fucking NIGGER.
“This bitch was sitting there yelling at an employee at Walmart, and she was telling her that she was a NIGGER and that she was going to get out of the chair and whoop her ass,” the woman said.
Fox 59 reports that Stephenson called in a radio station to tell her side of the story. She also criticized the security staff and the person who filmed the fight. She said that more things could have been done instead of trying to make social media fame.
“I don’t blame Walmart employees for not intervening. But as far as security, if you go to any other Walmart fight video, security is right there trying to break it up, help them.”
By the time police arrived, Amber said the fight was already over. She also talked about the role her son played in the fight.
“My son takes martial arts classes. He’s been going to the gym for several years with his father. I mean, he’s been in the gym for a long time,” she said. “He got a little crazy. I don’t have to worry about him ever being bullied.”
She described the boy as a straight-A, honor roll student and teacher’s pet. She said his martial arts teachers have taught him not to back down.
“My son is raised perfectly right. My son is perfectly well taken care of.”
A Walmart spokesman also said company policy prohibits employees from intervening in a violent situation. The store does have security officers, but they were just coming on duty as the fight was happening.
“This type of behavior inside one of our stores is completely unacceptable and we are notifying the individuals involved that they are no longer welcome on Walmart property. Once we were aware of this situation, a member of our management immediately called the police and we are continuing to work with them on this matter.”
Beech Grove Mayor Dennis Buckley called the situation “embarrassing” and pointed the finger at Walmart.
What makes the police more annoyed is the fact that the bystander videotaped on the camera phone it instead of calling the police. And to make this clear, this isn't the first case of problems for the Beech Groove Walmart.
There have been over 500 calls this year alone. The city is planning on issuing nuisance fines towards the mega store.
Brian Marye is the guy who filmed the video. He didn't care if the women were injured. He didn't care about the child's safety. He didn't care about dialing 911. All he wanted was viral sensationalism.
