DC Commissioner: Walmart causes young blacks to steal.

DC Commissioner has unusual reason for opposing Walmart.

From Washington Post…

Brenda Speaks, a Ward 4 ANC commissioner, actually urged blocking construction of the planned store in her ward at Georgia and Missouri avenues NW partly because of that risk. Addressing a small, anti-Wal-Mart rally at City Hall on Monday, Speaks said young people would get criminal records when they couldn’t resist the temptation to steal.
