I know little details on this but I think many of you are pretty quick to pass judgement.
Someone accuses Carter of stealing. Let’s assume it’s an Older Karen who sees Jalen Carter in her upscale Target.
(Karen) thought she saw them put something in their bag without paying for it (this was at the self checkout) Carter paid for his items, picked up the bags and Carter left the store. I assume security responding to the employees report pulled up the CC and found it to be Jalen Carter.
Carter wasn’t detained at the scene and there was no police report filed from the incident but apparently he was questioned about it by the police.
Rumor gets out and a reporter asks him to comment on it.
He blows it off …. “Probably just a misunderstanding I really don’t know much about this.”
That’s a very plausible possibility and understandable response.
My point is you know nothing about this. Neither do I. You do not know the actual context in what he said. All you know is charges weren’t filed. Which means there’s no proof he did anything wrong.
For all we know he paid for his items, put them in the bag and the employee racially profiled him and jumped to a false conclusion.
@Air2theThrown a couple thoughts. If it was simply a misunderstanding, then it doesn’t make the police come. Also if it’s anything small, I am sure Target just doesn’t give a shit. Jalen Carter in their store is enough publicity. Lastly if it’s nothing, then why wouldn’t he just say what happened? “My lady passed me the deodorant and I bagged it by accident”. Now that’s a non-story.
Edit: Also I agree Target wouldn’t want any negative publicity about it, which makes it even more suspicious when they didn’t just blow it off and say they made a mistake.
