A sporting goods store employee, who last month helped catch a suspect allegedly trying to swipe a weapon, was suspended and later lost his job at the Florida business following the incident, his lawyer said. Dean Crouch, 32, was working at the Academy Sports store in Tallahassee on June 29 when robbery suspect Jason White allegedly tried to steal a gun, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

This is insane. I'd imagine the stores policy of employees not "placing their hands on customers" is driven by fear of lawsuits. First of all, this was no customer, he is a thief plain and simple. More importantly, Academy Sports should be MORE concerned about a law suit from someone who's family member is murdered by the stolen handgun because they did not do enough to prevent the theft in the first place.
