Coincidentally, an Aug. 20, 2015 MRCTV report of a Wisconsin official declaring that stealing from Walmart is not a crime is currently enjoying renewed popularity on Facebook.
Speaking at a “Best Policing Practices” panel, University of Wisconsin-Madison community relations director Everett D. Mitchell, who is also both an attorney and pastor, explained that “big boxes” like Walmart can afford the theft:
"I just don’t think they should be prosecuting cases for people who steal from Walmart. I don’t think that. I don’t think that Target, and all them other places – the big boxes that have insurance – they should be using the people that steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police behavior."
