    Mrs. Kidd Rights were Violated: If no, human, (Pat McCaster, Lieutenant O'Dell, and Officer C. Campbell) sees, what Walmart surveillance video footage sees, then no one rights have been violated. Three men (Pat McCaster, Lieutenant O'Dell and Officer C. Campbell) violated Mrs. Kidd Rights. They all saw what Walmart surveillance video saw. Not one of the men went against Walmart surveillance video even though Pat McCaster, Lieutenant O'Dell and Officer C. Campbell looked at the video, as soon as, they walked into the Access Protection Room. As you will see on the second video, my family privacy was violated, as well, which could have been avoid if Pat McCaster, Lieutenant O'Dell and Officer C. Campbell had told the truth, as to who they saw in Walmart surveillance video.

    Walmart Supercenter Store Inc. in Saraland, Alabama, employee, Pat McCaster, who works in the Access Protection Room and Saraland, Alabama Police Officers, Lieutenant O'Dell and Officer C. Campbell Falsely Accused, and Interrogated, Mrs. Kidd, a 64-year-old Mother and Grandmother, who never walked into the store, of Stealing a cell Phone.

    Check out the Videos...Second Video coming soon

    They were unnecessarily humiliated, embarrassed, which brought on anxiety, depression, fear, worry, frustration and insomnia, as people walked in and out of the store, stopping, watching and coming back inside of the store to get a better look at the accused victim, her daughter and her three grandchildren.
    During the recording of the first video in the outer section of the store, Mrs. Kidd was actually marked by a bystander. Mrs. Kidd said to her daughter and Officer C. Campbell, I am going to sue. The bystander repeated, as to what she had said to her daughter and Officer C. Campbell, I am going to sue.

    While this story is sketchy cause of missing data, i am ROFL at the people calling the op and mrs.irate saying they are trolls. A troll is someone who purposly belittles someone who starts a tread and continuously posts in a row or to incite a uproar of flaming. also called flamers and flaming trolls. using a reusable shopping bag is NOT GROUNDS for accusation unless you look suspicius while shopping and/or head right for the exit without paying

    So, if it was about them thinking you put something in your purse: we can assume, that they saw you put something in your purse.-THEN they checked your purse? and found NOTHING of theirs? in which case they would have to drop their complaint if that is what it was based on. They would have to produce EVIDENCE of finding one of their merchandise items in your purse still with tags, brand new, etc. . So do they have any evidence of this? Like, a surveillance video or other documentation from that moment?

    wow look the troll is calling the OP a troll, that beats all. NO, a troll is someone who gets onto someone else's post and trolls it, opposes it, belittles the original poster, puts them down, harshly criticises the original poster., etc. oh, that would be YOU doing it, you know who you are.

    Good Lord. really? you push the cart, manage the baby, and all the while are still holding your list? well, ten goody two shoes stars for you! DID IT EVER OCCUR TO ANYONE THAT SHE WAS DONE WITH HER LIST AND DIDN'T NEED TO LOOK AT IT ANY MORE FOR A WHILE? in which case she has it together better than some, and i will speak for myself, who often loses the shopping list in the cart somewhere and it disappears. please pull your head out of that dark place where the sun doesn't shine for one second, stop condemning humanity for being human BUT without any bad motives.. thanks.

    "why would someone put a shopping list in their purse while shopping"? really? can't believe someone asked that! I DO IT ALL THE TIME. why? because that's where it belongs if you don't want to lose it. They will fall out of the cart, and besides then you can't push or steer right (AND manage a baby! )if you try to push your cart holding your shopping list. GET REAL!

    IN MY AREA MOST LARGE STORES HAVE "GREEN ECO" TYPE reusable BAGS THAT ARE FOR USING INSTEAD OF A SHOPPING BAG. some people DO put stuff in them instead of a shopping cart. However this store staff no doubt has their own experience and agenda. So just let the judge decide after you have presented all your evidence tot he contrary that shows you had no intention of stealing. Such as, that you didn't even try to get past the checkout, didn't leave the store, etc. And your other store's observations of how you shop in their store.

    Turns out she saw put something in my purse which was my SHOPPING LIST but she didn't want to admit she was wrong so thankfully I wasn't rude to her from her the beginning an totally understand she has a job to do an if she would have just told Me what she stopped me for we could have resolved then but I wasn't going to get charged with something I didn't do without at least trying to prove my innocent an I didn't stop until I figured out why she did this which. every one, makes mistakes

    IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU SHOULD HAVE TRAINED THE BABY NOT TO MESS WITH YOUR ITEMS. (MAYBE EVEN PUT THE BABY IN THE WALL MART BAG? It's a little bit like a dog owner blaming the dog for pulling him along the street.

    I have never heard of a bag you use while shopping... I understand that you can use your own bag at cash out but if you put it in a bag BEFORE you cash out you are just looking for trouble.

    Often I have remembered a forgotten item while checking out. Then I must go back in the store with a cart full of bags of paid purchases, (when I am too tired or too late or it is too hot to take everything out to melt in my car and return). That is what you were trying to make this look like, as if you had already paid for those items. I've raised 3 kids and I don't see how a 2-yr old, BELTED in the baby seat could even reach items in the basket (unless it was piled sky-high). Plus just how would putting stuff in bags stop your kid? Wouldn't the kid just take items out of the bag or even just grab a whole bag? I did have to keep my cart in the middle of the aisle, inconveniencing others because my kids would try to imitate me and help by taking random items off the shelves and adding them to my basket. I have seen other parents with the same problem. That is what kids do, they IMITATE what you do. I don't believe your lame story for a minute. Walmart and all retailers have to increase their prices by a lot to make me pay for what is stolen, and the costs of security to catch people like you.

    in my opinion you have been subjected to undue harassment, which you did not deserve, so get an attorney and tell them everything. you may have a case against the store and the persons in charge who initiated the harassment. they may have stepped over some lines and may have violated certain laws in making unsubstantiated threats of arrest, etc. etc They may owe you money out of some nasty people's paychecks for a while.
    hmmm it seems that a neutral attitude checkmarked will get a comment posted? the "agree" one doesn't post.

    they were wrong to harass you and falsely accuse you. get an atty and go after them for it. you should win your case if there even is one, it might just have been rent a cops not real cops. they might have stepped over a few lines, ask a consumer advocate attorney about it - tell them everything.

    No that's why I'm so upset an freaking out they told me that the bags were for when you check out but I have never been told that or had problem an been doing my shopping this way for like 6 to 8 months it's just so much easier then putting one item at a time at the register with the bag u just put it up their an they scan the stuff an put back in bag an it's so much easier to load up in car an unload when u get home even if u have 2 or 3 of them it's way better then 20 plastic bags but it's just not right in my opinion for me to have not known an was clearly not trying to hide the fact that that's what i doing an omg they even seen my baby on the camera where I put a travel pillow in the buggy an she through it out an then I was getting her some clothes an while trying to decide what outfits I wanted I had hung one on the side of buggy an she started taking her clothes off to put the one hanging on so it was so obvious an clear as to why in was using the shopping bags an that I was being honest with them but I did notice when I got in the office there was a chick I went to school with a we never had problems but she just never liked me for some reason an i am, almost positive she is the cause for all this

    In a court of law, you are innocent til proven guilty. The accuser bears the burden of proof. They have to prove that you stole or were in the process of stealing with the EVIDENCE that makes sense. It also has to be REASONABLE. Also they have to prove true and reasonable INTENT to steal or commit a crime.
    But you were not doing it with any intent to leave without paying. I think that will be a huge part of your case, t hat you had not left the store nor was your INTENT to go without paying. Because the judge will look at your intentions and you have to show him that you put it into the STORE'S OWN SHOPPING BAGS which they sell and provide for that very purpose, to carry your things to checkout in. NOT intending to steal. And that the security people had NO actual reason to think you were stealing. The witnesses could really help you if you can get their word in writing, with their name written and signed, or calling the witness to court via subpoena, or have them testify by phone, that they allow this in the other store and saw you use the bags at checkout.
    You did also NOT leave the store with the merchandise and that is a big point for the judge to hear. SOME store security are over the top and VERY unprofessional, like these. You might have a chance, might need a decent lawyer who already handled some cases successfully. The store "security" made a mistake about your INTENT. Intent to steal/ commit a crime is at least half of any charge of theft.
    No actual theft occurred, as you did not remove any merchandise from t he premises nor attempt to even leave the store at all. You didn't even try to pass thru the checkout with any unpaid merchandise nor was it your plan to do so at all. They were acting completely unreasonable, unprofessional and PARANOID, since that company sells those bags for shopping in their stores..
    Plenty of paranoid unethical and abusive jerks in uniforms believe me. PS it might not be a cop that said they would arrest you, it might have just been private security guard. They wear cop looking uniforms and badges too. If they hassled you for using a regular shopping bag with handles that is for the purpose of carrying the merchandise to checkout, well then they have overstepped their bounds and you should call a lawyer, and ask if they can be sued over this false charge and harassment. Filing a false complaint or charge, to or by the cops is in itself a violation of law in most places. Even falsely threatening to arrest someone who has not committed a crime, might get them into hot water. Talk to a consumer advocate attorney over the whole matter and see if the attorney can threaten to sue them, and make them pay his fee at least, if they drop the case.
    ps i am just a layperson, not a lawyer, i have some ideas that attorney sometimes listen to though, haha. "strategy" ---turn this bullsh*t on its head.

    Teach the child how to act... It is part of being a parent... Putting items in a WalMart bag while in the store makes it look like you are taking things without planning to pay for them.
    They did nothing wrong here and you are in the wrong.
