    There's clearly something missing from this story. No company would fire an employee for apprehending a thief - especially not, as the employee's attorney speculated, to retain the business of future thieves and shield against frivolous injured-while-stealing lawsuits (lol).

    Tackling is an act of infringement. And when we start infringing the rights of citizens to steal firearms we're just a short, slippery slope away from a repeal of the second amendment.

    Must've been painful pulling that out of your ass. However, you seem used to it.

    Companies are against this because it could escalate the violence.

    You mean he might actually shoot someone like he threatened he was going to do anyway? I guess that's enough to inspire complacency.

    You don't know too much then. It is much safer if companies let you steal than possible people getting shot on their premises. Not sure why you think something has to be missing from the story. When people are HEROES people die more often.

    It's risk management, it's business, it's a policy that comes from higher ups. You get his picture on the security cameras and show it to the cops and let them handle it so your employees don't get injured or killed. It would be instinct to go full Don Beebe and the chase the guy down, but that isn't how big companies want it done.

    Not apathy, it is a company trying to lessen their liability. There have been many others examples of store employees being fired for confronting a suspect. Companies do not want their employees getting into a confrontation ; they see it as too risky, so their lawyers create a blanket rule opposing any confrontation.

    This is actually untrue. They used to tell women to just comply with their attackers to until the FBI did a massive statistical analysis about 5 years ago and rewrote half of their procedures, now they no that a woman's best chance is to fight with everything she has got regardless of the guys strength or armament. Same analysis came to the conclusion that stores who used firearms in self defense were less likely to wind up injured.

    Apparently today it isnt that well known. Nearly all chain stores when robbed have a policy for their employees to not intervene.

    That is not true. It actually happens all the time.

    I do not like the practice since I feel it makes stores more of a target but this is (not all places) the police of most large chains.
