It is estimated that there will be hundreds of thousands of crimes committed in Walmart stores this year.
200 hundred crimes so far in 2016 have been violent, including attempted kidnappings, stabbings, and murder.
A possible reason for this...hardcore cost cutting by the retailer.
"The company has one worker for every 524 square feet of retail space, a 19 percent increase in space per employee from a decade ago.
In terms of profit, all this has worked: Sales per employee in the U.S. have grown 23 percent in the past decade, to $236,804. For criminals, however, the cutbacks were like sending out a message that no one at Walmart cared, no one was watching, and no one was likely to catch you."
