The Sleeping Wal-Mart Ninja’s Day Out


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The title really says a lot about this story but let’s dive deeper, shall we?

Shoppers at the Wal-Mart Supercentre located at 777 Memorial Ave reported to us today that they spotted a man prancing and ninjaing around before he tuckered out and fell asleep in the area near the cash registers.


After a brief nap, which was monitored by security, the sleeping ninja woke from his slumber and began doing twirly-type kicks. Similar to a roundhouse but with alcohol involved.

Security personnel kept shoppers safe and away from the crouching tiger, hidden dragon. His breath was blasting the area with an overpowering smell of alcoholic beverages.

Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service along with paramedics with Superior North EMS attended the scene. The man was handcuffed and transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre where he will be nursed back to sobriety before being released.

  1. Why are drunks being taken to the hospital? They are taking up space needed for the ill. We don’t have enough beds at best and now they are being used for this? Whatever happened to the old fashioned drunk tank?

    1. Because police aren’t really qualified to make a call as to whether a drunk person has additional medical needs. Just recently a police dept got in shit for arresting a guy for drunk in public, putting him a cell for a day with no water and it turned out by the time they called for help he hadn’t had a drop of booze and was 42 hours into a major stroke. It’s a shameful waste of resources in most cases but it’s sadly necessary that they get looked at by someone with more medical training

  2. Why do they take these idiots to the Hospital?.
    What happened to a jail, monitoring him with a jail guard if needed. The hospital staff, nurses sure
    Di mot need to waste their services on a drunk.
    They have to take time from patients
    This includes wasted resources on cleaning staff, police, doctors and nurses.
    Last thing a person waiting for medical help Needs to wait for a uncooperative drunk

  3. Of course it will be taken to the regional B&B detox ward all on the taxpayers dime. It will be given a clean warm bed to sleep it off , then a good meal and some extra TLC from the staff before being released to start the process all over again. While someone who is really in need of a bed there will not get one because of they are being being occupied by too many POS like this one. These POS should be taken to the landfill and thrown on a pile of trash to sleep it of Instead wasting a good hospital bed

  4. Some people in china are purposely stealing from stores in order to be arrested, the placed in jail with fresh bedding, meals, a medical checkup escorted pass for Hospital check ups whenever required, weekly or biweekly pay for a bi weekly allowance to buy bars, chips lottery tickets shaving supplies, etc. etc. this list goes on believe you me. Television on weekends all day and Hockey programs nightly. If you are of good character and dont tell the prison guard to f-off, they will allow you to stay awake pass lockup hour to watch the games on the tv sets. As well as a nurse coming around three times daily to bring your bug juice and other medications. You are allowed out in the excercise yard 1/2 hour a day for fresh air intake rather than the stinky ole toilets, farts, burps and everything else that goes on with these sub humanoids. This is also and has been happening here in our world,where the elderly are doing the very same thing to avoid paying bills, and able to collect old age without paying taxes. lol, what a glorious way to live.! After your release in winter, you can just do it all over again if its too cold outside. Just wait for summer when its warmer out with less chances of getting caught.!

    Why Some Japanese Pensioners Want to Go to Jail
    Japan is in the grip of an elderly crime wave – the proportion of crimes committed by people over the age of 65 has been steadily increasing for 20 years. The BBC‘s Ed Butler asks why.

    At a halfway house in Hiroshima – for criminals who are being released from jail back into the community – 69-year-old Toshio Takata tells me he broke the law because he was poor. He wanted somewhere to live free of charge, even if it was behind bars.

    “I reached pension age and then I ran out of money. So it occurred to me – perhaps I could live for free if I lived in jail,” he says.

    “So I took a bicycle and rode it to the police station and told the guy there: ‘Look, I took this.'”

    The plan worked. This was Toshio’s first offence, committed when he was 62, but Japanese courts treat petty theft seriously, so it was enough to get him a one-year sentence.

    Small, slender, and with a tendency to giggle, Toshio looks nothing like a habitual criminal, much less someone who’d threaten women with knives. But after he was released from his first sentence, that’s exactly what he did.

    “I went to a park and just threatened them. I wasn’t intending to do any harm. I just showed the knife to them hoping one of them would call the police. One did.”

    Toshio displays his own drawings in his cell.

    Altogether, Toshio has spent half of the last eight years in jail.

    I ask him if he likes being in prison, and he points out an additional financial upside – his pension continues to be paid even while he’s inside.

    “It’s not that I like it but I can stay there for free,” he says. “And when I get out I have saved some money. So it is not that painful.”

    Toshio represents a striking trend in Japanese crime. In a remarkably law-abiding society, a rapidly growing proportion of crimes is carried about by over-65s. In 1997 this age group accounted for about one in 20 convictions but 20 years later the figure had grown to more than one in five – a rate that far outstrips the growth of the over-65s as a proportion of the population (though they now make up more than a quarter of the total).

    And like Toshio, many of these elderly lawbreakers are repeat offenders. Of the 2,500 over-65s convicted in 2016, more than a third had more than five previous convictions.

    Another example is Keiko (not her real name). Seventy years old, small, and neatly presented, she also tells me that it was poverty that was her undoing.
