"The fact that I worked at the store at (the time of the robbery) is

break and they were being ripped off, I would have helped them."

Unfortunately the first thing you have to consider in operating a
business is not doing something that may allow John Edwards or one of
his friends to transfer huge wealth to themselves.


You can be assured that "Mr Thief" if identified will get dozens of
calls with offers to "help him" obtain large monetary compensation for
*the terrible ordeal of someone trying to stop him.


I doubt it. No attorney in their right mind would expose themselves to the
ridicule of a dismisaal of the lawsuit from the bench.


Of corse not, but George is obviously a Right-wing ****wad trying to
make a bogus political point.

When I worked at a discount store in my 20s, I was buffing the floor
when store security walked by and told me to unplug my machine and
follow him. We went into the security office, he with a very scared
looking teenage male shoplifter. He told the guy to sit down, said
that he was going up front to meet the police, handed me a miniature
baseball bat and told me, "If he so much as moves, hit him as many
times as you feel like."

Since I was the housekeeping dept. manager, he knew that I knew that
if the guy got up and bolted, I could not do a single thing beyond
picking up the phone and making a PA announcement, but this terrified
kid didn't know that. I looked at the security guy and said, very
convincingly, in a very "make my day" way, "Yes, sir." The guy sat
perfectly still until the security guy got back with the cop.

The funny part is that he said, "...as many times as you feel like."
Not as you need to. For all the kid knew, I was being given
permission to brutalize him.
