    I would avoid that Walmart, and that kid, like the plague.

    That kid should be in jail till he's atleast 30. How is he out walking around right now? FAIL justice system.

    If he was really into all that satanic garbage, his attorney probably played the mental illness card and had his sentence reduced dramatically.
    Call me heartless if you want, but I'd prefer his feet dangling the first time around...no chance for getting out at 21, no chance getting out at 30, no chance getting out EVER if you never go in...

    To be perfectly honest, I'd call WW and tell them of his past. Maybe they didn't do an adequate background check and don't know the story. Guys like that don't deserve second chances, and you (nor anyone else) deserve to be around them.

    As was mentioned earlier, if the crime was committed before he was 18, it is possible that his record was expunged.

    If that is the case, there should AT LEAST be an exception to this rule (or 'benefit') when the crime is particulary violent.

    I would definitely send an anonymous letter to WW and the local LEOs. I bet WW would not want him in that capacity and the LEOs would like to know. Is this the same jurisdiction he grew up? Maybe he escaped! Also let the girl know if she's still nearby. If he was sentenced as an adult, maybe he's on parole, walking a thin rope. Any crimes and back in the pokey. If a juvenile conviction, can he possess weapons? Scary. BTW did he still look goth? That must be interesting in a WW uniform. Maybe a pic over at www.peopleofwalmart.com would be in order...

    Actually, I think even if he was convicted of a felony they can't discriminate if he has "done his time".

    Personally I'd just do like you said and be aware of him when shopping there.

    I wouldn't call WW and say anything. You don't know anything about him now and though his act of violence was horrendous, he might be a completely different person today. Probably not but still, you don't know.
