Public Shaming Scorches Wal-Mart!!

Wal-Mart has decided to let Deborah Shank keep the money from her settlement.

"We have decided to modify our plan to allow us more discretion for individual cases, and are in the final stages of working out the details. Wal-Mart will not seek any reimbursement for the money already spent on Ms. Shank's care, and we will work with the family to ensure the remaining amounts in the trust can be used for her ongoing care."

Yeah. They were willing to take $400,000 from a brain-damaged disabled woman until people like Keith Olbermann, Anderson Cooper, newspaper editorialists and everyone else around the Internet began hammering on them for being a bunch of soulless and greedy weasels.

Wal-Mart finally did the right thing, but this is not an example of Wal-Mart finding its moral center or operating out of the goodness of its heart. This is an example of Wal-Mart obeying the Dirksen Rule: "When I feel the heat, I see the light." They were getting beaten daily and they wanted to stop the bleeding.

UPDATE: Keith Olbermann pointed out that Shank still had to pay tens of thousands of dollars to her lawyers to try to stop Wal-Mart from taking all of her money. He's right, it'd be really nice for Wal-Mart to make her whole from the costs of fighting off those greedy fucktards.

But I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

Wal-Mart. Always Douchebags.
