    TX statute of limitations on false imprisonment - 2 years. Better than waiting two years and one day!

    You have picked another place off of my, places I never go, to. What do you expect when you go to places like Walmart or Mc Donalds lol

    She has probably already cashed a five figure check, presented to her by a walmart representative in a suit and dark glasses.

    If not, she will be shortly.
    I would have had this one filed with the prosecuting attorney the next day.

    Either that or they gave her a free TV. Believe it or not, I actually know someone that "slipped" at Walmart and was given a free TV as compensation.

    We all know that Walmart doesn't pay very much money so they do not have the sharpest tacks in the box working there, a while back I had something happen to me also in Walmart and what I learned was to never hand over your receipt (you can show it to them) but do not hand it to them if you do you cannot leave the store with your item you purchased , and also in most states it is illegal for a store to detain somebody, they can ask you to stay but they cannot detain you (only law-enforcement can do that), if some idiot in a store said they were detaining me that I could not leave the first thing I would do is call 911 tell them I am being held against my will I am kidnapped and that I will be pressing charges, and as far as that woman goes her money was stolen and they also destroyed US currency I would be suing for theft and also for being held against my will and kidnapped,

    That's why I don't like going to Walmart. Every darn time I go in there they tear up my 100 dollar bills. I hate when they do that!!

    For the record, I've shopped at Walmart hundreds of times and the very worst of my experiences have been a slow cashier and a shortage of 230gr 45 ACP.
    Easily remedied now that ammo is back in stock and I know which cashiers to avoid.

    Should we demand that the person who tore up the bills be prosecuted?

    Walmart might as well get out the checkbook, and put a number down with a lot of zeros behind it....... but they will try their best to get out of it, and beat her down with the attorneys they have ..... which will only increase the amount of the eventual settlement.

    I would have pushed the officers to arrest them for attempted theft and kidnapping charges. If they did a citizen's arrest, is the only way they could try to defend themselves.... but, our laws state ... "observe them committing a felony" .... you have to know what they did was truly a felony and truly a crime.

    Heck no! That would mean us Fatcats who light our cigars with $100 bills could be prosecuted, too!

    I would go there if they would provide the $100 bills to tear up, I don't seem to have any of my own.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    Sometimes it takes time for the lawyers to get their ducks lined up, and there is nothing wrong with waiting till the filing
    deadline. Doing so may even make things more difficult for the defendants. Memories fade, evidence gets disposed of as a routine with the thought that the items are unimportant. Since you win civil suits by preponderance of the evidence,
    waiting to file can be a winning strategy.
