What did Walmart say about shooter...
COMMENT: Many employees at the Walmart store in Virginia had complained about Andre Bing's misbehaviour. The survivor of the mass shooting had, way back when, complained to the management in writing about the shooter employee's unacceptable behaviour towards her and other employees, on September 10. Her mother too had come and complained to the manager about Bing's abusive behaviour and her concerns about her daughter's safety. But the manager told her that Bing "was liked by the management," while the shooter supervisor of the Chesapeake store should have been delivered to the rehab post-haste. The manager's reply! A usual conundrum employees in India are familiar with but was never thought to be the proclivities of reigning "animal spirits" in the "land of dreams." Seven precious lives lost to the devil's shots!

RICHMOND (Virginia), Dec 2: A survivor Donya Prioleau of the Walmart mass shooting in Virginia on November 22, in which seven people were killed and four injured, has sued the company for $ 50 m in a lawsuit. She has been an employee with Walmart for over a year.

The lawsuit said the victim had complained about the suspect employee's behaviour months before the mass shooting at the store in Chesapeake but the company continued to keep him on the rolls. The suspect had disturbing interactions with staff, the written complaint of September 10 had stated. The lawsuit claimed that he also had "violent propensities."

According to the lawsuit, the gunman had told store employees that he would retaliate and "people will remember my name" in case he was ever sacked.

The lawsuit said, Prioleau's mother had come to the store following the suspect's abuse of her daughter and told store manager Alysia Mixon about it, that she was concerned about her daughter's safety, but Mixon told her "there was nothing that could be done about Mr. Bing because he was liked by the management."

The victim now suffers, among other things, sleeplessness, flashbacks, severe anxiety and nightmares, according to the lawsuit.

Andre Bing, a supervisor at Walmart since 2010, opened fire on a staff break room on November 22, killing seven people and injuring several others. Prioleau was in the room. The suspect died on the scene from a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the police.

Colorado shootings

DENVER: Following the Colorado killings, the lawmakers have stressed the urgency to speed up legislation to ban assault weapon and bring in age restrictions on the purchase of firearms.

A shooter, wearing body armour, opened fire at an LGBT nightclub, Club Q, in Colorado Springs, killing five and injuring 25 on November 19.

A US Navy member, who was injured while disarming the shooter, said he simply ‘wanted to save the family’ he found.

After the shootings at Club Q and the Walmart three days later, President Joe Biden has called on Congress to pass the legislation introduced last year to ban assault weapons nationally.
