Little Girl Molested By Wal-Mart Sex Offender, Gets $25 Gift Certificate

In the grand scheme of things, there are probably a few gripes with Wal-Mart more legitimate than their moral objection (or, as it all turned out, lack thereof) to purple ribbon. Like when your ten year old daughter is approached by a helpful Wal-Mart greeter with a bright yellow happy face button on his lapel who then proceeds to vigorously masturbate in front of her, right in the middle of the electronics aisle.

Or so Maria Hollins is claiming. And, of course, suing! The incident occurred in a North Carolina Wal-Mart about six years ago when thrice-convicted sex offender and then Wal-Mart employee Bobby Devon Randall approached Hollins’ daughter and began groping himself in front of her. When a customer came by the aisle, he fled, but then returned to do it again.

What makes this story really priceless is this masterstroke of customer service from the store manager: “After her daughter told her what happened, Hollins returned to the superstore the next day to speak to a manager and was offered a $25 gift certificate as a token of concern, according to the complaint filed in Richland County.”

Despite video tape evidence, Wal-Mart seems to think they have a good case, as they’re not settling. Perhaps they think they can hold out and get Hollins to accept two $25 gift certificates in exchange for the desecration of her daughter’s innocence!

    Very strange… A store employee plays with his junk in front of a 10 year-old girl, and the girl’s mother waits until the next day to do something about it–and what she does is go to the store manager, rather than the police? I hope the reason for that is the kid didn’t tell mommy until the next day. But still, she goes to the manager first?

    If someone did that to my daughter, the first thing I’d do is wonder when the hell I became a father, then I’d immediately call the police.

    The most compelling thing to me, though, is that photo you have there. Is that copyrighted? I want to use it on a JDate.com profile…

    Wow, judging by the pic, Billy Corgan has really let himself go.

    That picture is…amazing. Halloween costume idea, perhaps.

    I guess this answers the question I keep asking myself each morning, the elusive mystery which has tortured me for years:

    What has Kevin Costner been up to, lately?

    That picture is amazing. It looks like an alocoholic version of the guy who played the father in the Beethoven movies.

    Or like Will Farrell if he’d been inflated to the size of a blimp and then quickly deflated, leaving only loose skin and a walmart bag to cover him!

    I think this kind of thing is common at Wal-Hell stores. I know at my local store, let’s see, a customer got banned for flashing 2 employees, a drunk guy got arrested for throwing a fit that they wouldn’t cash his out-of-state check, someone pulled up a truck at 11pm (at a 24-hr store) and tried to steal the vending machines…and this is all within the last year.
