Grocery worker fired for stopping shoplifter

Schultz said he was called to the store's office the next day, on
Christmas Eve, and was fired because he violated a company policy
prohibiting employees from having any physical contact with a
customer.


Kate Klotz, a company spokesperson, said the policy is clear and
listed in a booklet that all employees have to acknowledge that they
received before they can start work.


"The fact that he touched him, period, is means for termination," said
Klotz.


Since when is a thief considered a 'customer'? Schultz was affecting the
apprehension of a criminal, he wasn't manhandling grandma selecting the best
bunch of bannanas in the fruit aisle.


Or manhandling grandDAUGHTER trying to choose among the various fair
trade chocolate bars in the candy aisle.
