Walmart needs to hire more Security Officers for their parking lots. Certainly the good old "Shareholders" of WALMART can make an effort to protect their customers. Their parking lots are becoming a feeding ground for criminals.

They do need security especially when you take into consideration the lay out of that parking lot, that area is kind of remote.
