October 18, 2013 -- “Sometimes we have to take a step back and look at the situation from another perspective. Our current policy exists with everyone’s safety in mind and we understand there could be some room for interpretation. While we understand Mr. Oswald’s intentions were good, at the time we believed there were some additional safety concerns. That being said, we have offered him his job back and welcome him back to the store.”

-- Brooke Buchanan, Walmart Senior Director of Communications
