Re: Walmart Money Orders Can Put the Innocent in Jail
The spokesperson did claim that the decision to pursue charges was up to the law enforcement officials on the scene. But the copy of the criminal complaint obtained by 11 News, shows that the store manager is who pressed charges.
This is a bit silly on the part of the writer/editor. The two are exclusive of each other. The store manager can't order the police to take someone into custody. The manager can press charges all they'd like but the police still have to investigate the charges and decide if an arrest is warranted or not.
But anyway, Walmart will be settling this one for a large chunk of change... and they should.
