    With a name like target you think they would have guns.

    Good job on the mayor for calling out the Target manager. I'd vote for her!

    BTW doesn’t just about every company have a termination clause about portraying the company negatively? Fire the manager, end of story.

    I was thinking along the same lines. The cops don't just show up unannounced and set up their stuff without it being pre-approved

    I haven't shopped at Target since they kicked out the Salvation Army bell ringers.

    I live close by. Never heard a thing about this. Listen to local news radio all day long(cant stand TV news, bunch of empty talking heads). Never a story. The left buries the news that makes their side look bad.

    I believe there are a number of “managers” at a target.

    I think you're confused. They don't need permission or an appointment to buy stuff, but just like anybody else they need prior approval to set up a donation drive on private property.

    I wouldn't fire the manager, that just puts another person out of work. but I would make him take special classes on how not to be stupid!

    Plaster the front of the store at night with Trump signs and posters. Throw in a few Blue Lives Matter stickers. The "peaceful protesters" will arrive shortly to claim their reparations and burn it to the ground.

    Karmic response, I like it.

    And if the town happens to be sane, then the store gets a pass from rioters and looters.

    I have been inside a Target store exactly one time, to redeem some Target gift cards so they wouldn't get to keep the value of them, since my best friend's eight-year-old granddaughter left the women's restroom upset and confused because there was a man loitering in there. He must not have "identified as" a woman too much, as he was sporting a full beard and in men's clothing. This in a conservative small Southern town. Target's policy on restrooms.

    I've been done with Target for quite a while.

    Being an a-hole and putting the company you work for in a bad light has it's consequenses for a reason. A boycott of this store will put more than just the a-hole out of work.

    Nope

    Maybe i should clarify...

    Did they set up a booth or something on store property without permission?
    Did they contact the store earlier but this weasle of a manager decide to be a db?
    Was it just some cops in the store buying school supplies?
