    Default Academy Sports manager fired, for stopping gun theif

    Link to article:

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/07/11...wyer-says.html

    Suspect took off from the counter with a .40 handgun and ammo after asking to inspect it. Manager intercepted him and detained him until police arrived. Suspect was already wanted for a theft earlier that day from a Gun shop.

    Academy says they fired the manager because the store policy does not permit staff to touch customers in any way.

    When you try to flee from a firearms counter with a firearm and ammo,,,, you are no longer a customer.

    This guy is lucky he didn't get shot when he robbed the gun shop earlier that day. Lots of stories about idiots getting shot doing just that.

    I'm guessing staff is not allowed to carry while working the gun counter? Would shooting the suspect count as "touching"? Sorry, just me, but I'd never work anywhere that involves sales of firearms if I couldn't carry.

    Academy will no longer get any of my future business.

    They sounds like a bunch of Dicks.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    How is a thief a "customer"? Definition: a person or organization that buys goods or services from a store or business


    It sounds like about now would be a great time to rob any Academy store.

    I think this guy's lawyer is going to get a huge settlement from Academy.

    I wonder how Academy would deal with that handgun being used in a murder at the next robbery.

    That policy exists at almost every chain retail establishment. If someone steals, your just supposed to let them and call the cops. They don't care about what the thief does at the next place, they just don't want to be sued in the here and now.
