In my internet travel last night I went by my sister-girls blog HERE and read the most asinine story. It appears that Dollar Tree is denying a family and 11 year old son, death benefits after a 26 year old young lady, a Dollar Tree employee was killed while working in the store in 2006. 26 year old Taneka Talley was stabbed in the store in an obviously racially motivated attack. The store is claiming that the death benefit denial is based upon the fact that the stabbing was racially motivated and a HATE crime, which makes it PERSONAL (even though he did NOT know her). Uh yes, that’s right, you read the sentence right. The HATE crime is PERSONAL so the store’s insurance carrier is denying the claim bought forth by Taneka’s family. Read about it here.
What do you think about this mess?
So a HATE crime is PERSONAL?????
