According to a new study, Walmart's vast expansion in the 1990s correlates directly with a decline in crime reduction. In other words, more Walmarts = more criming. It's not that simply gazing upon that fucking Rollback Smiley causes people to go out and STAB EVERYTHING—it's more that Walmart tends to open stores in underserved, lower-income communities. (And, maybe, that replacing all the stores with one store and trapping human beings in a life of bleak, poverty-wage toil in endless, hopeless exurbs isn't actually the healthiest thing for said communities? But IDK, I'm not a happy-ologist.)
