And if your car got stolen at the local bank, church, library or elementary school would it be their fault? Most retail establishments, public parking lots, and garages have disclaimers that they are not responsible for the cars or their contents. Why? Because they know that there are bad people out there. The scum of the earth who will take things from you anytime, anywhere. Now, if it was a WM employee who stole the car, took it apart, and resold it in the automotive section then that would be a different story
In this case, it really was their fault. Not only did the security guard sit there and watch, one of Wal-Mart's store employees did as well. After our car was stolen, we found out there have been several thefts from that parking lot. Oddly enough, the same thing has not happened at the Super Target down the street. Apparently, thieves choose the Wal-Mart parking lot because of the lack of policing.
The problem I have with Wal-Mart os the obvious lack of security in their parking lots. I had not idea how bad crime in Wal-Mart parking lots was until after my car was stolen.
