Claim: A Home Depot store called police to remove an ambulance that was posting in their parking lot.
Examples:[Collected via e-mail, June 2012]
There is a boycott going around Facebook. It reads:
"Join the Boycott. Home Depot told an ambulance that was posting in the
parking lot to leave and then called the cops on them"
Did Home depot really call the police on an ambulance that was posting there to have them removed because "it was bad for business"? I googled it and several major chains had the same thing going. Just wondering.
