You've read the title right people... 'Jail cells in Wal-Marts'. I still have to dig a little deeper into this story but early indications show that's the case in Midland, TX.
Has things deteriorated so bad that retailors have to input a penal system into their establishment? I grew up near this city as a teenager and did my fair share of mischief but never encountered anything like this. Most department stores have in house security and they can detain you for shoplifting til police arrive but this is too much.
Conspiracy theories have loomed on the horizon the Jade Helm project taking place in Texas is in preparation for total anarchy coming soon and Wal-Mart creating jail cells is another step in this process. For years many have stated the department store chain is merely a front for their alleged existing underground bunkers. For the newcomer it basically states military/ militia are doing exercises to prepare for the day of reckoning. This rumor can fall under the smoking gun category but take it for what its worth.
I have friends in this city and will try and verify if these stories are true. In the meantime you may want to think twice before shoplifting in this West Texas city. View story...
