Seriously, I worked in retail and believe me they don’t pay enough to stop crimes. That’s loss prevention and police work. life is more valuable and important than the corporates bottom line. I’d let them take it .. go.. shoot.. that poor man will be replaced in hours and not given a second thought and he put his life out there for them.
You are absolutely right! Let them take what they want, he will be replaced this morning by the time they open, while his family prepares to lay him to rest. Sad story. God bless the family. May he rip.
