For several hours, EBT cards stopped showing their balances in parts of Louisiana. Walmart stores in Springhill and Mansfield, LA took pity on EBT users and announced that they would accept the cards on good faith, so welfare users “could get food to their families.”


What happened next is both Walmarts were jammed packed. Entire shelves were cleared as EBT card holders raced to the stores and filled up carts with anything they could grab.


Walmart began accepting the cards on good faith at 7:00 PM. However, at 9:00 PM the balances started showing again. Immediately a woman was caught trying to “buy” $700 worth of stuff with a balance of $.49.

When loudspeakers announced that EBT balances were showing again, dozens of patrons immediately abandoned their carts. It seems the majority of the the people remaining in line were knowingly trying to defraud Walmart. Both Walmarts were left cluttered with jam packed carts. The EBT card holders were simply trying to get more free stuff at Walmart’s expense.

Perishable items left in the carts were ruined.

So what happens to those EBT "debit" cards that went over their balances ?
I guess taxpayers will pick up the tab for that one.

Leeches are looters.

Does anyone expect recipient class dirtbags to be honest?

I bet they weren't grabbing "store brand" products.

Filthy animals.

Wal Mart is basically a social service. They allow rampant theft and that's how many people support themselves, through theft.
Wal Mart was stupid but also throw this on Obama's doorstep. They deliberately cut off the EBT cards through a manufactured bug to stoke public anger over the shut down which was until now just a PR nuisance. Nice thing, jerking around his own supporters like that.
They should keep tabs on every one of those purchases, every dime and subtract that from their next handouts.

Well since this was Walmart's doing then Walmart should be billed for the overage on those cards.

If I was in the upper mgt at Walmart I would fire all the people that were involved in making a decision to trust the public to do the right thing. Predicting the outcome was as easy as stealing candy off a baby with no arms. I would have a full investigation and even fire the people that agreed with that idiot decision.
