This is Wal-mart’s fault, and Wal-mart’s fault at these two locations

First the system went down in 17 states Secondly there are many safegards in place to prevent fraudulent use of these benefits in cases such as this, which Walmart blatantly disregarded and for which people stole and took advantage of the system failure.

If the system goes down, the merchant *can* extend up to 50.00 dollars to the customer who is presently at the register at the time the system goes down.

I do agree every person who stole has major culpability in this, but Walmart at these two locations is at fault for being told these rules again, when they called to check on the system and promptly ignoring them over and over and over again.
