Dollar General: A Few Questions
OK - so got stopped with a less-than-$10 item concealed. Manager followed me out to the car and held the car door open so I couldn't close it. She says I can either come inside and settle it there, or she'll call police. So I go inside. She takes my pic with her phone and copies my driver license. She says I am now in the DG "system", banned from every DG, that if I go into any one the cops will be called immediately. She says they use "facial recognition" and my info. will pop up somehow. She lets me go with no cops and nothing in writing - I didn't sign anything.
The questions are: 1. Do they have a no-chase policy, and if so can I report her for chasing me out to the car and holding the door open, and if so, how to report? 2. Does DG have facial recognition? 3. She also says they have cameras that you can't see and where you wouldn't expect them to be - True? 4. Does any of this sound like exaggerated scare tactics, or, what is true if anything? 5. Chances of being prosecuted later for this incident? - is it worth their time & expense for a less-than-$10 item?
Also, there was one other employee in the store busy at the register and not involved on this.
I'm not going into this DG again, but pondering whether to go to a few others after a cool-down?
