but other products were easily available. she was escorted to the cash register and that other shoppers were looking at them. gloria allred filed the suit and if walmart is concerned about security it should be locking up all of its products. >> what appears to be racial profiling of african-american customers must end. we think that it perpetuates a racial stereotype that african-american customers should be suspected of being thieves and criminals. >> allred went on to say that she and gundy are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages and an injunction against walmart. walmart has yet to comment on the lawsuit. if you remember the main spillway fractured a year ago under the pressure of record rainfall, but the disaster forced nearly 200,000 people downstream to evacuate. the california department of water resources announced today
