    As a very frequent shopper of this particular store, it doesn't surprise me. It was a store they converted to a Super Wal-Mart about 5 years back and they never really got all the security glitches under control.
    Turning out to be a great week to be from Jersey :(

    I hate to say this, but I don't see a crime involved, just an asshole.

    Oh, I think it's a crime. And as a proud South Jersey resident, I'm glad they made an arrest.

    So it's a crime for one idiot to pick up an intercom and say, "all black people leave story" (Note that he didn't use the N-word), but it's not a crime for a rapper to sell a million copies of a song that encourages people to kill white policemen.

    I guess this has to be some sort of crime for the unauthorized use of Wal-Mart's intercom system, right?

    Those of us in North Jersey long ago ceded that part of the state to Delaware.

    I hope you know I'm laughing my ass off at the Bob Beamon-like leap you're trying and failing to make to turn your point into something relevant to what happened in that store.

    Oh and thank God you noted that he didn't use the N-word because that makes it all right. ::)

    And for the record, I'm not sure I'd consider it a crime either, but why even give the impression you're coming to the guy's defense, Hondo?

    A civil suit I could see. But criminal action? That's a far stretch.

    Maybe trespassing, for unauthorized use of the phone. But even that is a big stretch.

    If charges are filed, any halfway decent lawyer will get them dismissed.

    The guy is an asshole and I would applaud if he got his ass kicked on the spot but I don't see criminal action here.

    Unless being an asshole is a crime in New Jersey.

    More like a residency requirement. (Hi spnited!)
