Video inside closed Walmart shows cops guarding entrance and loading docks, possible Jade Helm connection?

Exclusive video taken in a recently closed California Walmart is adding to fears over Jade Helm and possible detention centers for American citizens

(INTELLIHUB) — Early last week mega corporation Walmart randomly announced that they would be closing at least five stores for up to six months due to what they described as, “plumbing issues.” With Jade Helm 2015 on the horizon, these abrupt closures instantly sparked fears that they could be connected to the large-scale realistic training drills set to take place in at least seven states.

“Stores in California, Texas, Florida, and Oklahoma closed Tuesday with little to no warning, in some cases without even letting the city know, leaving thousands of people without jobs (Walmart claims employees can move to another store) and sparking widespread theories as to the real reason for the abrupt closures, read an Intellihub special report.

The closures may end up being nothing more than simple plumbing issues but when you consider FEMA’s past statements and documented plans to use large, empty department stores as holding centers in the event of widespread social unrest or a massive influx of immigrants, they take on a more sinister meaning.”

Now, with massive alternative media attention on the store closures, citizens are starting to gather information on their own, including a woman who took footage inside the Pico Rivera, California Walmart. What she recorded, at the very least, warrants further investigation.

The video, which was cut after the source filming the video was asked to shut down her camera, shows police officers outside of both the front of the store and the loading docks.


“They have now covered the windows with black tarp, surrounded the place with cops, and put up a wall up inside so no one can see whats going on past the pharmacy area.”

Video breakdown of the footage goes into further detail and quotes a source as saying, “This store is a Wal-Mart Superstore and its located at 8500 Washington Blvd. in Pico Rivera, CA. The parking lot was virtually empty, the basket corrals were setting off to a distant corner of the parking lot. No sign of any Plumbing work or contractors on site. Yet the employee I talked to said that they really don’t know what’s going on but that Wal-Mart gave them 60-days severance and said the problem was a plumbing issue.”

Numerous important questions are asked in the video. ANP notes:

Why are there unmarked cars at every single entrance?

Why are plastic coverings being put up concealing every possible way to see into the store?

Why have they built a strange ‘staging area’ as seen at 2:20 of 2nd video?

Why all the empty shelves if they plan to reopen in 6 months?

Why are they using the shelves to block off the rest of the store?

Is the 2-month severance pay being received by Wal-Mart workers ‘hush money’?

Unbelievably, the source of the above video decided to go back to the Walmart to obtain additional video footage. The second video shows, “double” the police presence. After the source came out of the store a law enforcement patrol unit was positioned behind her car.

“Local law enforcement do not have the resources to just be doing this stuff for free and here in California they don’t even have enough officers to cover the streets at night for high crime and murders.”
