Re: Am I Really Banned From Wal-Mart?
"Face recognition camera"? No, they do not utilize this technology at Wal-Mart ... why would they? Besides, that's a software package and a database, not just a camera. And did Wal-Mart staff take a digital photo of you when you were popped? They certainly don't have access to police photos, and I doubt they would spend the small fortune required to scan every customer to see if they had ever been in THAT particular store and caught shoplifting. I suppose there is a SLIM chance they might be running an experiment, but there is no such program in place that I am aware of in California and I speak to regional loss prevention folks here frequently. Yeah, Wal-Mart gets plundered to the tune of millions of dollars quarterly in just my part of the state ... so I have ample conversations as many of these pillagers run regional operations.
