Walmart In Beech Grove A Public Nuisance

In the dog eat dog world of attracting jobs sometimes details fall through the cracks
Enticements and property tax free zones to employers like Walmart to a town attract
In Indiana in Beech Grove a 14,000 resident small town
Daily police calls to a Walmart store the city fathers watching costs now frown
There may be lots of sales tax
Shipped to the state but not to Beech Grove coming back
Three police calls a day
Base behavior of shoppers in aisles on Utube to display
When it comes to tax in Indiana this poet is without a clue
Why not send back some of the sales tax dollar to avoid the red ink stew?
A Walmart in a small town for the Moms’s and Pops is the financial equivalent of the Perfect Storm
Most cannot compete on price so bankruptcy for them is often the norm
Salt on wounds of lost dreams as their property taxes pay for the cops
Sent to Walmart for all manner of violence to try to stop
Mayor wants to declare the local Walmart a public nuisance and for each call fine
Interesting way to the war on Walmart’s expansion refine
