I’ve heard about shampoo, soap, and other beauty products being locked up in stores, but this is the first I’ve heard of this…

A shopper in Oakland, California posted a video on the social media platform and showed viewers just how bad things have gotten at his local Walmart.

The caption to the video says it all: “Out of control.”

The video shows racks of t-shirts locked up at Walmart to prevent theft.

But the man also shows that these locks probably won’t do a lot to deter shoplifting.

He said, “You could just go like this and take the shirt because you don’t need the coat hanger.”
