They should be promoted, not fired, I guess it is now public knowledge you can shoplift at sprint and not be chased, to bad I don't need a new phone

Re: Alright whiners...

I would like to hear more about it.

On the surface, it sounds really stupid on Sprint's part.

On the other hand, if the company has a policy not to chase shoplifters............they broke company rules. If a shoplifter is armed, then it would seem pretty silly to lose your life over the little bit of property a shoplifter can take.

The fact that they didn't know it was just a shoplifter though, should be a mitigating cause not to fire them.

And yes, I know there will be those that will chime in and say the Sprint employees should have been carrying................ and shot the shoplifter in the back.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

I sure would have. I'm sorry. But there is no place in society for people like this. Not to mention, it saves the taxpayer (ME AND YOU) alot of time and money.

Re: Alright whiners...

I understand company's having policies to not resist illegal activity (robbery, shoplifting, etc). But these two were on break and answered the call to help from a security guard.

To me, they were on their own time assisting someone... Nothing silly about guns to me - but they should not have been fired for it...

Re: Alright whiners...

I agree with you that they shouldn't have been fired for it.

Especially since they didn't know it was just shoplifting when they went after the guy.

It could have been a rape or physical attack for all they knew........in which I would have fully agreed with chasing the scumbag down.

However, for me personally, there's not a single material possession I own (much less someone else's) that is worth me or my loved ones getting killed over.

So what's your address so I can pass it on to people in Florida that would like to have your stuff? Attitudes like yours is what promotes and sustains thievery.

I earned what I have and I protect what I have with whatever means necessary - including a backhoe.

Sprint needs to eat this one. That ugly word "liability" in action again. (in regards to Sprints' employee policy)

Re: Alright whiners...

makes complete sense.IN TODAYS TWISTED,POLITICALLY CORRECT,##### ASS WORLD.
if they hurt the poor,poor thief,
they are open to lawsuit (SICK ISNT IT ??)
so they have policy to just let it go.
in todays climate i would do the same..

stolen property.200-300 dollers
lawsuit 50,000-100,000
what would you do ???

You're wrong (again ).

If someone came to my house, while I was gone, and stole something................I would report it to the police.

If they broke into my house while I'm there, they better be well armed because as far as I'm concerned.........that is when my family and self are threatened. And like I said earlier, that is a whole different story.

Now as far as if someone went running away from my house with my property.......no, I'm not going to shoot them in the back.

I call that being a ####ing coward.

Yeah?

Well you're not the only one who has "earned" what they have.

But to take another persons life, over material possessions that can be replaced...................is pretty stupid IMHO.
