Another day, another story about Target going off the deep end and doing something absolutely insane.
The incident happened in 2013 when Allison Meadows was in an East Liberty, Pennsylvania, store when Leon Walls stormed into the building and stabbed her.
The attack on the girl happened after Walls stabbed a man outside the Target, then ran into the store chased by a man named Michael Turner and several others. When Walls grabbed the girl and threatened to harm her, Turner leaped into action.
As expected, Meadows, who was 16 at the time of the attack, was grateful for Turner’s actions.
“I thank him every time I see him,” she told WTVC.
But she was less impressed with Target and sued to company, claiming the company’s lack of security put all shoppers in danger.
Target’s response? Sue Turner for endangering shoppers.
The store is claiming Turner put shoppers at risk when he chased Walls into the store.
It really doesn’t get much crazier than this.
Watch the store’s footage of the incident below:
The Meadows family was understandably angry about the store’s decision to sue Turner and said Target is trying to shift blame away from its inability to keep shoppers safe.
“Suing Michael Turner is just Target’s way of trying to blame someone else for what happened under their own roof. The family certainly doesn’t blame Mr. Turner and they are thankful he was there that day,” an attorney for the Meadows family said, according to KDKA.
It doesn’t get much sillier than this — but then again, this is the company that continues to allow men to use women’s restrooms and changing rooms despite tons of negative publicity and millions of dollars lost due to boycotts.
Share this story if you agree that Target suing Turner for his heroic actions is about as crazy as it gets.
