And this is exactly why only the security guard at Walmart can attempt an apprehension. This is why wall mart fires greeters for even so much as asking if an item is stolen. Damned if you do damned if you don't.

Hmm. He should've read the sign on the door:


WARNING

SHOPLIFTERS WILL BE PROSECUTED EXECUTED

Don't do the crime if you can't survive the encounter.

It's a good thing I don't live there, I would never convict them of doing their jobs if I were on the jury when they get charged, and they will, this is America land of "it's never the criminal's fault"


Because someone else is a criminal it doesn't magically gives you the right to break the law.

Last time i checked murder is not legal in north america.

Only 1 of the 3 guys was a security guard from what i can read. The other 2 were not actually doing their job at all.

Responding police officers reported all three workers were on top of the man when police arrived.

I didn't realize their job was to kill shoplifters.


Once you decide to break the law, you are responsible for everything that your actions cause after that point. So no one should feel sorry for these people, they put themselves in this situation all the time and it's their own fault. It's just a good thing no innocent people were hurt because of their actions.

Last time i checked murder is not legal in north america. This is surely not a case of self defence or i'm missing something.


But this isn't "murder" it's a "homicide" there is a HUGE difference. All deaths are homicides, but not all homicides are murders...

3 against the 1 man is a bit over the top though :/

To some degree...yes. You're responsible for your OWN actions. And, if you break the law, you should accept the (possible) consequences of others. But, you're certainly not responsible for the actions of others.

I would be extremely ****ed if any store employee tried to help me doing my job. They usually just get in the way.

The thief used a cyanide pill. It'll show up in the autopsy.

Because 210Po is too mainstream?
