I was caught stealing money ($75) from the Haiti Earthquake relief fund at Wal-Mart, was assulted, lawsuit?

I was in the store, and at each register they were asking people to donate money, there was a register with a jar of money it in, i thought nobody was looking, i walked past it, put my hand in it, and took all the paper money in it.

One of the customers grabbed me and had me in a retraint on the floor. Other customers came alone and held me in a restrint until the police got there.

I was arrested, and released with paperwork. I have to appear in court on feb 9th. I hope i just a warning.

They took the money off me, and put it back in the fund.

Can I file a lawsuit against wal mart for allowing this?

    My bill is in the mail for legal services.

    You do have grounds for a lawsuit. You can sue your parents for you not having a brain and also child abuse for not helping you learn common sense and decent morals, and then I am going to sue you for asking such an inane question and wasting my time and then give the money to someone who can hep you deal with the serious mental condition known as confabulation.

    Yes, you can, but no sane judge will honor it.

    They should have put you in the stocks with a sign saying what it was you did. And a big basked of past-their-date tomatoes and eggs "Courtesy of Wal-Mart".

    Yes you can file a lawsuit against Wal-Mart.

    And Wal-Mart will counter sue and win.

    The fact that you posted this in religion and spirituality rather than the legal advice section suggests that you are a troll.

    Sure! Tell you what, I'll represent you. Step into my office...oh don't mind that thing, I always keep a baseball bat handy...

    I will help you fight the case if you give me half the money, spiritually speaking though

    oh, yeah, you should do that. Maybe you'll make the judge disgusted

    enough to double whatever punishment is usual and customary.
