Walmart Tomato Gets Man Severely Injured by Officer © 2016 by Phillip Evans

Tyrone Carnegay, a man in his 50's, lawfully purchased a tomato at an Atlanta area Walmart in Oct 2014, and was about to bring it out of the store. Things did not go well at that point.

On his way out he was immediately grabbed by a uniformed, off-duty Atlanta police officer working security for the store. Upon grabbing Mr. Carnegay by the shirt, the officer starts wailing on him with his baton. The blows were hard enough to shatter the victim's leg to the point that he needed to have a titanium rod inserted, and still walks with a limp to this day.

A lawsuit has been filed against Walmart, the manager on duty, and the police officer. The officer found the receipt for the purchase after beating the man.

For pain, suffering, and a permanent injury, I hope the verdict goes into the millions if it goes to trial. If settled out of court, I still hope that it's a very costly lesson for those responsible for victimizing Mr. Carnegay.
