This writing is in regard to the complaint about Wal-Mart on the handling of the search of the customer and Wal-Mart not having written policy and violating rights of the citizen. I would like to retract the statement as I have misquoted what the person was trying to say.
Due to space I was trying to convey as much information as possible. I did not pass on the correct information in doing so.
My apologies to Danny2015.

In West Plains, MO a seriously ill woman after doctor's appointment had her prescriptions filled at West Plains Wal-Mart Superstore. She was subjected to 1 hour unlawful detainment, bullied, falsely accused and the store was in violation of Constitution amendments 1st, 4th, and 14th.
The reason for this post is not by choice by my duty to inform unsuspecting citizens of West Plains, MO of the illegal search by Wal-Mart of a citizen. My first choice was the free press but the editor of local paper verbally refused to print and refused to provide written reason of why. He explained I did not understand business law. Reinforced by responding law officers forcing debilitated citizen to prove her innocence and comply with illegal receipt check and some of her personal property.
The citizen was not guilty of any wrong doing but her rights were clearly violated by Wal-Mart and the local police. The citizen was threated with a shoplifting charge with no probable cause. No one in the store could supply the customer with a written policy of the procedure used to search citizens.
As citizens we are to stand on written principles. We are responsible to respectfully question possible violations.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
Preferred solution: provide written policy of the searching of customers at front door. Apology from Wal-Mart.
Walmart Cons: Embarrassed.
