As long as we don't disarm the criminals.....after all, they have to make a living too!
Moral of the story ...

DON'T LIVE IN A BUS PARKED IN WALMART'S PARKING LOT! ... lol

T.I.M.
I don't like seeing this either. These stories are the ones that cause so many issues as they get twisted and turned into something they aren't especially by those looking to put in further restrictions. As the story passes, it will develop into a story about ALL RVers and the danger they present.
I don't know why they allowed but in the last city we were in, a really bad looking RV stayed in the parking lot for probably 4 or 5 months straight and that doesn't get positive attention from the community.

We were living in the Tucson area in AZ in the mid-90s and one of the Wal-Marts there was the first to stop overnight RV parking. Well, in this case, everyone blamed the city for putting the restrictions in but we used to go there to shop on Sunday mornings and the parking lot was small, you had people with the lawn chairs and other "stuff" spread out and worse yet, they left bags of trash and emptied holding tanks on the ground.

As with everything else, only the "bad" news gets press time. They don't cover the stories where people in RVs arrive to help people in need or ones that work/volunteer to improve our parks and country.

Is there ever anything positive that happens at Wal-Mart. I keep seeing youtube videos where fights break out between individuals in the store over a bottle of shampoo or when someone bumps into someone's cart. Maybe Wal-Mart has a curse on it.
It's just a matter of volume of people. A small but certain percentage of people will do bad things.

If you have 10,000 times more people than everyone else, then you will have 10,000 times more bad things.

It will appear to be a curse, or exceptional, but it's still the same percentage as everyone else. Just a whole bunch more stores and more people per store per day.

Oh man!The re-sale value of that bus has got to be next to nothing.
Like Bob said! I'll add that people are people, it doesn't seem to matter what their education, religion, social status, etc is, they are equally prone to good or bad behavior. Some may be more open about it however. HA!

I agree, the volume of Wal-Mart stores will bring them into the news much more often. Also in cities where there are a lot of RVers, there are going to be more stories involving RVers. Yes, putting it all into perspective.
