    Customers staged a disturbance, took unpaid for groceries and walked out of a Mississippi Walmart after they were unable to use their food stamp cards on Saturday.
    People in 17 states found themselves unable to buy groceries with their food stamp debit-style cards Saturday after a routine check by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure.
    The mini riot, happened at the Walmart in Philadelphia, Miss. Shortly thereafter, managers decided to temporarily close the store.
    “For the safety of our customers we did make a management decision to close the store.

    We’re looking into everything; looking at surveillance video and working with the local police,†said Kayla Whaling, a spokesperson for Walmart.

    That was one of my first thoughts too... the story doesn't make any sense. How did the word get out that the EBT cards were no limit and spread fast enough that these people were able to destroy a store in under two hours?

    Something doesn't add up here.

    Walmart's to blame also. They just accepted them because they were scared it might cause a riot if they didn't. Fucking animals.

    most cards didn't work at all, but some in La. and Ms. had the limits disabled...once the EBTers found that out they went on a shopping frenzy

    did you see all the parked carts full of food in that one WalMart...LMAO
