The St. Cloud, Florida police department has filed a formal complaint with Walmart after a police officer in uniform was refused service by two clerks working at a Walmart store in St. Cloud.
The incident was reported by Central Florida TV news outlet WFTV which got confirmation from Walmart and police that a clerk refused to ring up the officer’s purchases by pointing at her (the clerk’s) skin color. A fellow clerk laughed and also did not help the officer.
Incredibly, Walmart’s corporate office confirmed the incident but did not issue an apology.
