Mr. Driver, 30, was chased into the Wal-Mart parking lot, handcuffed and forced down to the hot pavement for allegedly shoplifting. He died in under 10 minutes once he was in the hands of the Wal-Mart employees.
“About 30 people were saying, ‘Let him up, it’s too hot,’ ” Portz said. He said another employee brought a rug for Driver to lie on, but one of those holding Driver said he was fine where he was. “After about five minutes, (Driver) said, ‘I’m dying, I can’t breathe, call an ambulance,’ ” Portz said.
… After Driver was handcuffed, Portz said one employee had his knee on the man’s neck and others were putting pressure on his back. “Finally the guy stopped moving” and the employees got off him, Portz said. “They wouldn’t call an ambulance.”
Walmart won’t discuss their security procedures.
Let them know how you feel about it. I don’t need to link them, do I?
