Wal-Mart cops patrolling my neighborhood?

The past few weeks, on top of the patrols of the Roeland Park Police Department, a new police force has made its presence known in my neighborhood.

The Wal-Mart Security Patrol.

Every few hours, a Wal-Mart police car with Texas plates will drive by the house. Every so often, when I'm driving around, I'll pass the Wal-Mart cops as they're cruising the neighborhood.

My question ... why does Wal-Mart has a cruising security patrol, why do their vehicles have Texas plates, and what exactly are they doing, anyhow?

My guess is that it is a gang of hired goons is looking for you because you host this site filled with anti-Wal Mart comments.

could it be they are looking for stray shopping carts that wandered off the lot?

additional
2 - any donut shops nearby?
3 - any anti sprawl-mart yard signs?

I'd call walmart and report the slackers.

If they are instructed to be doing it I'd ask why.

Some one in your neighbor hood changed the smiley face to a frown, and they are doing the investigation to lock them up.
