It must be racism! Walmart puts Tide Pods in locked cabinets

Walmart is being sued by a woman who claims racism because some Walmart stores have “beauty products” for black people, like hair dye, under lock and key.

See DCG’s post “Woman sues Walmart for “segregated” beauty products“.

The reason why stores keep certain items in locked cabinets is not because of racism, but because the items are most targeted by thieves. As an example, a CVS drug store in my neighborhood now keeps electric toothbrushes and replacement brushes in a locked cabinet.
Another reason is safety.

ABC12 WJRT reports, Jan. 31, 2018, that some Walmart stores, like those in Californian cities Modesto and Stockton, are locking up Tide Laundry Pods because more and more people have been stealing them.
Walmart spokesperson Charles Crowson gave this statement:

“No retailer is immune to the challenge of crime and Walmart is no exception. The decision about which items are subject to additional in-store security is made on data gathered at the store level and often at the discretion of the store manager.”

While Walmart would not say if the moronic Tide Pod “ForbiddenFruit” Challenge affected the decision to lock up the pods, some believe the viral trend may have had an impact.
The Tide Pod challenge is a new fad that dares people to bite into the soap pod on camera. According to the Poison Control Center, in the month of January, more than 130 teenagers have purposefully bitten into the pods compared with just 53 people last year. Dr. Mai Le with Dignity Health Medical Group in Stockton, warns that ingesting the detergent pods is very dangerous, and can lead to pulmonary edema and death.
Here’s a video on what happened to a boy who popped 3 Tide Pods into his mouth:

Poison Control says if you accidentally or intentionally ingest the pods, call their hotline number right away at 1-800-222-1222 or text POISON to 79797.

I can’t imagine how can there be and exist so many stupid people in this world they can’t see further than their noses. They are so plain and ordinary they don’t advance, they stay behind thus so easy to be manipulated and controlled, no common sense ? that’s the making of a DemoCrap.

I’ve had quite enough of protecting stupid people.
My suggestion is to remove all warning labels and allow nature to take its course.
Seems cruel but who the HELL eats a known detergent “Tide Pod”? I mean REALLY!?!

They probably give you these if you ask for a plastic straw in California.

There used to be a time when we didn’t HAVE Government agencies and Do-Gooders to protect us from our own stupidity. Back then,people evolved and developed Logic,and Common Sense,which naturally PROTECTED most of us from doing things like–THIS. As a byproduct of this,if one was overly stupid,he/she would soon do something stupid enough to remove him/herself from the “Gene Pool”,thus improving the average intelligence of Humanity. Thanks,largely,to the Liberals’ inherent “Nanny-ness” though,that no longer happens,leaving us with–THIS.

Hard to feel sorry for Walmart, they come in, get a typical 20 YEAR moratorium on their property tax, lower their prices so they drive all the local and other stores out of business, impoverish the community and then the dummies who forsook all the other shops to go to Wallyworld are so poor that they’re forced to steal noxious smelling Tide to clean their clothes. Those Tide detergents make me want to vomit, their toxic “fragrance” is more like eau de urinal cake. You can make your own less toxic detergents, Lehman’s sells the ingredients, or you can buy… Read more »

Excellent video. Maybe we should take the pods off the market. Or maybe start telling kids apples are forbidden instead.
Whatever the reason, we have reached a dangerous level here. Parents have to start talking to their children more and stress the dangers.

Maybe we should send a few buckets of the Pods to the DNC. They’re very attractive. Maybe they’d put them out in the candy dishes.

How is it that a “17” year old young man would participate in this kind of activity–even on a dare? Is he stupid? Is he mentally ill? Has he had not “fetching up” as my Father used to say? Looking back in history, we found that during WWII, there were young men in uniform fighting for this country, I should imagine that the same was true for WWI. If we look even farther back, say to the American Civil War, and the Revolutionary War, we had, what I can only call older children, who were out their with their lives… Read more »

I used to wonder why they had those decals on five-gallon pails the basically said “don’t stick your head in here when its full of water or you’ll drown”. Then I thought; “well, people don’t seem to have what we used to call common sense”.
Now I think its nature’s way of culling the herd. Anyone stupid enough to do something like this should not be allowed to breed.

Mike Adams, The Health Ranger, owns a company which has equipment that can analyze the components of almost any substance. They analyzed the Tide pods. Even though Tide only admits to 14 substances on their packaging, there are over 800 toxic chemicals in a Tide pod. These evil companies have purposely formulated poisonous products to make us sick and die. Make your own laundry detergent or purchase chemical free products.
