When Everybody Realizes Walmart Doesn’t Have Enough Security To Stop Everybody

Looters sacked at least 250 stores across seven Mexican states, reflecting growing unrest over a 20 percent hike in gasoline prices.

Wal-Mart de Mexico SAB, Grupo Comercial Chedraui SAB, Grupo Elektra and Organizacion Soriana SAB stores were among those targeted in a wave of anger about the “gasolinazo,” or fuel-price slam.

Looting, preemptive store closings and trucks robberies have been widely reported in local press and social media.
