After Target Stocks Plunge Following Bathroom Policy, Company Turns Around & Sues Customer Who Saved Shopper from Stabbing
Target stocks plunged $2.5 Billion in just 10 days once word got out about the company’s pandering to less than half a percent of the population, which would open up bathrooms to those of the opposite gender. The stocks continue to fall and are at almost a $20 loss per share, but that isn’t stopping the retail company from suing one of their own customers who saved another shopper from a stabbing attack.
Breitbart reported on a 2013 event in which Michael Turner grabbed a baseball bat and used it to chase of an attacker and save the life of a young woman who was being attacked in a Target store. Instead of offering praise or award for Mr. Turner, the store has chosen instead to sue him for endangering other customers in the store with the bat. No, this is not satire.
Target, however, is less grateful for Mr. Turner’s heroics. And now the retailer is suing him for “endangering” the store’s customers.
According to the company’s filing, Target says Turner and several others chased the suspect toward the store’s entrance after the attack on the girl. The store insists Turner put other shoppers at risk with his actions.
The victim of the stabbing and her family are furious with the retail chain and say Target is just trying to shift the blame away from its own security failures.
“Suing Michael Turner is just Target’s way of trying to blame someone else for what happened under their own roof,” the Meadows family attorney said. “The family certainly doesn’t blame Mr. Turner and they are thankful he was there that day.”
Can you say “stupid”? Who is calling the shots at Target? Is Target CEO Brian Cornell aware of this incident? If so, does he not have enough sense to put an end to such a ridiculous and frivolous lawsuit? There is no way a jury will side with Target against Mr. Turner.
Mr. Turner should be held as selfless hero who put his own life at risk to save another. I’m wondering now if Mr. Turner or the young lady will ever step foot again in another Target store.
To be sure, Target’s competitors are probably having a field day over this as more and more business leaves the transgender supporting, criminal aiding retail company. I say, “Good riddance!”
