How is that anti-poor? Honest poor people wouldn't have perpetuated a fraud. These free-loading criminals saw it as yet another opportunity to get something for nothing.

Too bad we can't reallocate the money the state is taking away from those asshats to the honest EBT users who shopped that day and didn't steal.
This is not anti-poor. This is crime-doesn't-pay. And I hope the stores remember next time to stick to their $50 limits--they lost a lot of money on this.

Every single person who spent more EBT money than they had in their account should lose their entitlements FOREVER. Criminals don't deserve assistance from the taxpayers.

Barfmaker: Even though the accepted policy is to allow benefits recipients to purchase $50 worth of groceries in the event that cards malfunction, many stores did not limit purchases.


So the stores got their money but no punishment for them?


From what I have read, that limit is a suggestion (and a wise one) from the EBT agency, but not a hard rule. Bet that changes.

The rich steal and they get the taxpayers to give them billions of dollars.

Poor people steal and the middle class morons get pissed off because the poor people are trying to steal their cookie!!!!111


They probably should have thought about that BEFORE they committed fraud; shouldn't they? They didn't catch a break so much as commit massive, willful fraud. Hell; I bet the state could get every single one of them on RICO charges to go with the fraud!

Walmart made how many billion last year? A ton of it by farking over taxpayers to pay the tab from screwing over workers. Let them eat this like cake.

/at the same time don't exploit the system and feed this class-warfare BS

According to this, hourly employees had their hours cut to make up the losses Walmart incurred.

Link at the bottom goes to story that those Walmart stores are cutting back on expenses (workers) to offset those losses.

Gyrfalcon: As always, it's going to be the kids of the crooks who end up suffering, which is sad.

I don't feel sorry for the crooks, just the kids.


The kids can get at least two free meals a day at school and most communities have food banks where they can get basics and nonperishables.

Guess those parents should have thought about the impact of their behavior on their kids. What a concept....

I have a few friends on EBT who were pretty damned furious when they saw this.  Though it may have been because they want carts full of more groceries, too ;)

I still can't decide what I think on it.  Obviously stealing is bad, mmkay, but if they loaded up on, say, a basket full of fresh vegetables and fruits for their kids, I'm inclined to say, "Can we foot the bill on this one?"

Granted, from the pictures, which may have not even have been from the incident, that didn't appear to be the case.

Yeah, the type of people that abuse the system like that aren't putting anything in their cart with the word "fruit" spelled correctly.  Probably lots of "Froot" and "Fruutie" items though.

I think the Republicans think that they'll magically become bootstrappy and hard-working since they won't be depending on Government help keeping them down. . .that or they'll just plain die.   In any case, they see it as not their problem anymore.

That's what it comes down to, they genuinely don't care about the poor.  They don't care if they live or die, if they go hungry or not, they assume the poor are that way because they are lazy or immoral and if they were good people they'd have more money.

Those desperate starving people won't actually starve. Their kids will eat at school and the after school program or church or whatever, and they will continue to make it like they always have. Because I can guarantee you that the criminals who committed this crime have been fleecing the system a long time. This wasn't their only revenue stream. It is a sad situation for the honest people who get a bad rap due to assholes like this though. At least since the idiots who committed the crimes are easily ID'd, the honest folks shouldn't be impacted. These people need to take responsibility for their actions. What they did was wrong. It really is that simple. And if they commit crimes to make up for their lost benefits, well they have already proven they have are criminals so what is the surprise there?

You're right, of course.  The negative consequences of giving out such assistance to so many with no accountability have been ignored for decades.  it's time some light was shed on the issue.

I'm not really sure there is a good punishment. It's probably the only punishment allowed by the law, but it is mind bending that starving the kids seems to be agreeable to people.

ferretman: [imokaywiththis.jpg]

Me three (or 18th or whatever). I worked at a grocery store for 2.5 years, and EBT users were the most self-entitled brats you could possibly serve. Not every EBT user was, but of the worst customers (especially the repeat offenders) 95% were also EBT users. Basic things like telling them prepared meals weren't food-stampable would lead to a hissy fit where I would get threatened and by the time my boss showed up, they'd just key in the override and run away. Therefore, the fit was rewarded and an unlawful precedent was made. Funny thing was, I really liked working there, but EBT customers killed it for me.
