Unless you live under a rock with the target corporate goofs you must have heard about how target told Sheriff Staly they would no longer participate in the “Shop With A Cop” program. This activity is funded by the Sheriff’s Office and like minded citizens…no cost to target. In fact the kids spend about $16,000.

The Sheriff was notified by target upper management that they wern’t going to play nice this year. OK, not the smartest thing to do, but OK.

The Sheriff wrote a BEAUTIFUL missive to target’s chairman stating the dismay of everyone due to the company’s lack of interest and support of this exceptional program. He also went directly to Wal-Mart who welcomed the opportunity to participate.

The event went off with kids being picked up in police cruisers and taken to Wal-Mart with the lights flashing and the siren blaring. The caravan went right past the target store. The kids had a great time and shopped for gifts that they probably wouldn’t get.

As a side note, the kids often shopped for their parents and siblings. Great job target on one of the worlds worst public relations blunders…ever!
