Dude! Handicapped parking is AT the front of the store not IN !
PIMP MY WALMART
San Jose, CA
According to the news, the dude got out and assaulted 4 people with a blunt object sending 1 to ICU. If this did happen in Redneckville, I am sure the driver would exit the store in a bodybag.
This happened near me in San Jose, CA. The guy drove around the parking lot hitting cars, he made several attempts to crash the car through the front of the store. Once he got inside he jumped out and started to attack people. He severely injured a clerk by hitting her over the head with a what looked like a metal pipe or club. He was able to attack more people before being tackled. Total nutcase, I’m guessing he’s a former disgruntled worker who went postal. I’m glad he didn’t have a gun.
A Walmart store erupted into chaos and at least four people were hurt Sunday when a man rammed an Oldsmobile Cutlass through the entrance, then attacked an employee and shoppers with a blunt object, police said.
At 11:15 a.m., the unidentified driver in the red, two-door Cutlass Salon struck two other automobiles in the Walmart Supercenter parking lot, at 777 Story Road, in East San Jose and then crashed through the pharmacy and market entrance and continued a few dozen feet until colliding into a beer display. After leaving his car, he picked up an object inside the store and assaulted people, seriously injuring at least one, said San Jose Police Officer Albert Morales.
One of the injured victims was a Walmart employee.
The assailant, described as a man in his 30s, was tackled and tied up by bystanders, according to one shopper who did not want her name used. Police said the driver was arrested and is being treated at a local hospital. As of Sunday afternoon, police had not identified him, Morales said, and would only say his injuries are not life-threatening.
The person suffering serious injuries and three others who sustained lesser, non-life-threatening injuries, were transported to a local hospital, Morales said.
Sharon Kaye of San Jose was still feeling shaken on Sunday afternoon after her car was sideswiped by the Cutlass. She said the driver first hit a car near the parking lot entrance, then struck her 2009 Honda CRV as she was waiting in it near the front of the store to turn into a parking aisle. The Cutlass then sped up and down other parking aisles, again approaching her car head-on.
“Oh, my goodness, he’s going to hurt someone,” Kaye said she thought to herself as she turned from confused to frightened. The speeding car drove over collision debris, passing her car on the right. It did another turn around the parking lot, then came from behind Kaye’s car, drove between cement pylons on the walkway and tried unsuccessfully to veer into the glass doors at the store entrance, she said. When the turn proved to be too acute, Kaye said, the driver backed up and came at the doors from a wider angle and plowed through them and the door frames.
“I stood there shocked,” she said. “It was very scary.” She told the first arriving police officer that he needed to call for backup.
According to police, once inside the store, the driver exited the car and began assaulting people. One shopper said the weapon appeared to be a metal bar.
Inside, Morales said, “people were running out of the store, people were crying, people were just confused about what was going on.”
Shopper Tianna Doan of San Jose said that a Walmart cashier was struck and suffered a head injury. She also said that shoppers were trying to take the driver out of the car and hold him down.
Paramedics treated the injured and placed them in ambulances. Police cordoned off the parking lot.
The store was evacuated and closed for several hours, Walmart spokesman Kory Lundberg said. “We’re obviously very concerned about the associate who was injured.”
Authorities hauled the car away around 2 p.m. and crews were working to repair the automatic doors where the car crashed through. At mid-afternoon, they were still interviewing some of the 70 people they had identified as witnesses, Morales said.
Police did not identify the victims, nor their conditions.
Kaye, an opera singer and voice teacher, said although her car lost its bumper, sustained other damage and had to be towed, she is grateful that she was not seriously injured. She had just attended Easter services and left church early to pick up ingredients to make scalloped potatoes for Easter dinner.
“I did not get the potatoes,” she said. Her son picked her up from the parking lot. Although she plans to get checked out by her doctor Monday, she said, overall, “I am very blessed.”

Driver’s training class will be in the Wal-mart parking lot today.
5 seconds of fame for obama lama’s half brother.
This picture on a humor site right now is tasteless in all honesty.
You know, I am so sick of hearing people doing things like this to innocent people that I don’t care if the guy is on drugs or mentally ill or both, I just want someone to take that lead pipe or whatever it was that he used on that poor salesclerk and pound what’s left of his brain into a mass of useless swollen tissue and dump what’s left of him into a bottomless pit. No money wasted on a trial or taking care of him in a prison or mental hospital. Expeditious!
that’s a nice car ! Such a shame it was owned by a d***
HEY ALANA!! ——– This isn’t your personal blog. Take your novelette elsewhere.
This was all over the cable news today. The rest of you touched on the aftermath so I’ll leave it at that.
NORTHERN GIRL — Sorry girl. We can’t do that in the states. He’ll get a trial and be released on low bail and then given probation. Do you mind if we deport him to Canada?
Prayers to the people that got hurt and I hope the send this ass to jail for along time. He could have killed someone.
Man! look at dem’ sweet rimz on the cherry red 74′ Oldsmobile!
What a waste of a 1970s Oldsmobile Cutlass, it wasn’t donked out but the owner it turns out was a total asshat, wonder if he had his picture taken and it ended up on this site ?

Ok people, we need to go back to the good old days, and deal with people like this the way we used to…If you attach people, the cop show up to cut your body down from the tree, end of problem…No trial, court, 10′s of 1000′s of dollars spent to defend your stupid tail and feed, cloth and keep you healthy so you can sit in a nice heated/ cooled cell with 3 hot and a cot…..We have Vets in this country that get a lot less and they served !!!!! So band togather and take them out !!!But remember you didn’t see or hear anything!!!
No, but we’ll trade you! Give us this guy and we’ll send Clifford Olson to you and your inmates can beat that POS to death. He’s been in prison too long, sucking up our tax dollars. As for your guy, he’ll probably just try to escape and we can gun him down …. LOL
That is the last straw..
We have to BAN assault Cars
where is Diane Feinstein ?
yes mr badabing, since a car drove thru a window of a store and someone could have been injured, we have to ban cars or does it need to be a ban on windows. i mean which one – we gotta pick. It has to be either the car or the window’s fault. There is no way in hell its the drivers fault. that will give dog catcher obama and his deputy biden something to spend time on.
NORTHERN GIRL: Hit me with the story. Never heard of him. We could turn him loose in an elementary school and he’ll get shot in no time down here.
Clifford Olson is a serial killer of children out in British Columbia who is doing a life sentence, never to be freed. Wasting taxpayer’s money!
Dat douchebag stole Willie the Pimp’s ride!
You get a tree and I’ll get a rope….and we’ll go down the the swinging tree!……….The world has gotten to PC….if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…and 10 people saw you do it…Then send in Elmer Fudd, it’s duck season!!!!

Sweet ass car!
Seems this guy has a penchant for smoking Meth and then LOOSING HIS F…ING MIND! He apparently did the same thing to a gas station driving a Lexus not too long ago. He has a long record of being a complete wacko to the extent that the authorities should have put him in a steel straight jacket years ago, he is not at all unknown to the police. I tried to put a link to the article I read about him in a previous attempt at a comment but it has not shown up. Just do a search and you can probably find the info on this guy. It’s worth it; some of it is pretty funny.
The local Walmart was changing the barriers outside the two entrances two days later. Much bigger and spaced closer together than the old ones. You can probably get a smart car between them so be on the look out for rogue smart car drivers!

He was probably sick of walmart only opening 3 registers at a time.
“But I couldn’t get a brake job! I just spent $3000 on my paint and $4000 on my stereo!
