Suspect dead, officer wounded in Arizona Wal-Mart brawl
| March 22, 2015 | Updated: March 22, 2015 5:20pm

COTTONWOOD, Ariz. (AP) An overnight family brawl in a Wal-Mart parking lot has left one person dead and two others wounded, including a police officer who was shot in the leg.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a Cottonwood police officer was shot in the leg just before midnight Sunday trying to break up the melee in the store parking lot.

Authorities say the incident began when police responded to reports that a female Wal-Mart employee was allegedly assaulted by multiple suspects.

According to DPS, the suspects were part of the same family of eight and immediately attacked responding officers outside. Seven officers suffered minor injuries including lacerations and bruising.

Target usually has few problems in my area. I do Walgreens drive through for scripts. I know the pharmacists and he always checks twice to make sure it's right.

Basically people who have no respect for themselves or for others. I'm proud to say I haven't shopped there in over a decade.

6. Snotty and thoughtless remark

There are people who are working hard to support their families, and it easy to shop at WalMart - you can get practically anything there. Poor people.

So I'm supposed to be better than them because I prefer Target and shop at Whole Foods, sometimes?

7. Sometimes people have no choice.

Maybe they're in a small town where Wal-Mart drove out all the competition and there's no place else within a reasonable distance to get the stuff they need - plus, Wal-Mart pays such shitty wages that the people who have to work there because there aren't any other jobs can only afford to shop there, even if there were better stores nearby. I wouldn't shop at Wal-Mart on a bet, but I live in a large metropolitan area and have the option of going to Costco.

...I've made to Wally World over the past decade. In the 90s I worked there for a couple years and that pretty well destroyed any desire I have to shop there.

27. So true

Many, many places cannot compete. I do avoid Wal-Mart and rarely shop there unless I have to. Not because I think less of the other shoppers or people working there (I do not) but because I am lucky to be in a community that supported a smaller grocery chain that I very much prefer.

living in the parking lot. Walmarts allows people to stay with RV's in the parking lots overnight. These people had been there for several days pan-handling, while living in a surburban. Now if they could explain the connection to the employee or relative.

15. Hey! I drive a Suburban and I sleep in it often between jobs

I prefer truck stops to WalMart because I don't think WalMart uses the cameras to protect the parking lot. In fact, WalMart has ZERO security in their parking lots in my opinion.

17. Yup, our Walmart straddles town lines & is usually the spot..

where dozens of RV's park during the week along with truckers. Usually its out close to the main highway where few customers would ever park w/o taking a taxi to the front door. I guess its a hot spot because one can walk to chain dining places or nearby Home Dept or Lowes.

Yes, some people don't have a choice. For those that do, they should not shop at Wal mart

8. Luckily, when I was very poor and Walmart had cheap food, I put feeding my family before any

 

snotty feelings about how wondrous I am.

Funnily enough, my grandson works in the deli of an upscale grocery store in an upscale neighborhood, and says he knows it is stupid to paint everybody with the same broad brush - and says the rudeness and entitled attitudes of the well-to-do people was quite a shock. Go figure.

28. No one is praising them. But wishing hunger on some poor people (easy to do from a keyboard) in

 

order to "get" Walmart in some way, must be very satisfying, I guess.

Oh, I would not have had to buy cheap food if my huge telecommunications company had not built a giant IT center in Mumbai and transferred almost all of the IT jobs there, and if my son's fine carpentry jobs had not dried up due to very cheap labor from another country. So - the place to start is less food for us, eh?

The whole fucking corporate infrastructure, with the bought and paid for complicity of our government, is responsible for the povertization of America. Right now, some here at DU are singing the praises of a politician who wants to off-shore MORE jobs, who wants to increase H1B visas, who has a hand in a "trade" agreement that will, IMO, make things even worse. Or are those things okay because they do not affect one directly.

32. Sing it, honey!

I don't think there's a building trade that can provide a living wage for a working class family, anymore. Not even 1/2 of a living wage. My generation was the first to attend college in my family, and many of my family members worked in the building trades. Only one is still in it; and he is rich since he built a construction company from the ground up. I wonder how many of his workers are here legally?

And the outsourcing. Ugh

Maybe you should walk in their shoes before judging them as "people who have no respect for themselves or for others."

Your post is one of the crudest and most hateful things I've ever read on this site. That's saying something.

Family of eight, gets into a fight with one of the sales staff.

They assault the cops who show up to break up the fight.

I expect to see an update where most (or all) of them were drinking too.

and we saw three cop cars speeding down the road with lights flashing!

It was around midnight, so they were definitely heading for the WalMart.

At the time we made some snide comments about donuts, that I regret making after reading this OP.

37. Police: Family in Walmart melee were street performers

Police: Family in Walmart melee were street performers
Jim Walsh, The Republic | azcentral.com 10:26 a.m. MST March 25, 2015

Before the Gaver family was arrested for its reported involvement in a fatal melee and officer-involved shooting at a Cottonwood Walmart, the family performed on the streets of Boise, Idaho, as a religious band, authorities said.

The band's name, Matthew 24 Now, apparently refers to the second coming of Christ. A Facebook page identifies the members as Peter Gaver and his sons, Jeremiah and Nathan. It chronicles the band's "busking," or performing in public for tips, and relates some of its experiences.

The trio were among seven Gavers arrested on suspicion of assault and/or resisting arrest Saturday night after a Cottonwood police officer was disarmed during a parking-lot brawl, triggering a series of shootings that ended in the death of 21-year-old Enoch Gaver and the wounding of an officer, according to police.

Police were called to the superstore after a female Walmart employee reported that she had been shoved out of the way when she attempted to use a restroom shortly before 11 p.m.
