Did you hear this story? I was like wtf way to make people on food stamps look like low life's. it's people like this who ruin it for the people who truly need food stamps and are honest citizens.

Louisville, Kentucky (The Weekly Vice) - Tracy Browning, a 38-year-old Louisville woman, was jailed after she allegedly tried to purchase several iPads with a food stamp card, then fled to another location where she tried to make the same transaction.

According to Louisville police, Browning went to the Valley Station Walmart and tried to purchase two iPads with an Electronic Benefit Transfer card. When the transaction was denied, she assaulted a store clerk, pushed another employee to the ground and fled from the store with the merchandise.

Investigators say Browning went to another Walmart in the area a short time later and again attempted to buy several iPads with an EBT card. She was apprehended at the scene while attempting to flee with the merchandise.

Browning, according to police, has been banned from all Wal-Mart locations due to prior incidents with the store.

She was booked into the Louisville Metro Jail and charged with robbery, shoplifting and trespassing.

She might have had the TANF grant.  The cash  go on the same card.  But still, if she is on the TANF grant, then she doesn't need to be buying iPads with it.  The cash grant is supposed to be for things like rent, and utilities.
