Man fired for chasing off thief.

A home depot manager was fired from his job because he chased off a thief who was breaking into a vending machine using a crowbar. Said manager is now suing home depot.

You all know my strong feelings of not egiving criminals what they want, but then again, I also support the right of an employer to institutes regulations.
Before anything, I thinks it was a pretty risky move, chasing up to a guy who's got a crowbar, it could have ended pretty badly.

I wonder how this will turn out.

I know that when I worked at 711 I would not do jack crap to stop someone who was breaking up the place with a crowbar except call the cops. If crowbar dude got within about 10 ft of me and was headed closer he would have eaten a 158gr .38 special hollow point to the chest.

A mom and pop place would be a different situation from a big corporate one.
