Walmart Shoplifting Suspect Didn’t Deserve To Die, Wife Says

ATLANTA (November 27, 2012)—Fatimah Calloway, the wife of a shoplifting suspect who died after a fight with security personnel outside of a suburban Atlanta Walmart, says she thinks store employees used too much force to subdue her husband.

Calloway said Tuesday her estranged husband Vidal Calloway didn't deserve to die over the Blue Ray DVD players he was accused of stealing.

A police report says three store employees wrestled Vidal Calloway to the ground Sunday.

One of them, a security guard, put Calloway into a choke hold and told Calloway to tap when he couldn't breathe.

Detectives are awaiting autopsy results to determine how Calloway died.

Wal-Mart Inc. says two workers were suspended with pay and the security guard will no longer work at the store.
