Kmart Complaint - False shoplifting accusations and attack from security
FORT OGLETHORPE, GEORGIA -- May of 2009 my daughter and 2 friends were in Kmart in Fort Oglethorpe, GA. They were just looking around, but the older friend of my daughter had some money, she was going to purchase some items, they had laid some scarves and wallets over the top of her purse, stupid I know, but apparently that is what her grandmother does and she did same. They were also carrying some larger items..My daughter said "hey why are we carrying all this, let's get a basket from up front. Well she thought the baskets were out in the front, (and they used to be) she stepped out to get one, and was bumped into by a large man, she said excuse me, he grabbed her and pushed her into the store, I saw this because I was sitting in the van waiting on them! I was like what the crap I could see this man and another pushing them 2 16 yr olds and a 17 yr old. All 3 weighing no more than 120, one under 100lbs!! They basically man handled them. the 17 yr old was arrested...later we received a letter demanding money from some attorney's in ATL. my daughter had to go thru counseling and was found to NOT be a person who had stealing on her mind...so she was on probation for 3 months...KMART should NOT man handle young ladies, in this day and age when men attack young girls!! The crap they accused them of trying to get was under $100. NOT worth possibly breaking one of their arms or even worse. I used to spend quite a bit of money in there every year, but NEVER again will I buy one thing from them, will never darken the doors of that nasty place. The guy who was the security guy thought it was so funny when I mentioned them shoving them! Makes me want to vomit every time I think of it..KMART SUCKS!! I hope they all go bankrupt!!
