A guy tries to wheel a personal computer in a box out of a Walmart on West Kellogg Street without paying for it last Friday night- and store employee Heather Ravenstein tried to stop him.
The man ran off without the $600 computer after striking Ms. Ravenstein- but she was not badly injured- just shaken- according to the story in The WICHITA (KS) EAGLE.
Heather Ravenstein was further shaken when the next day- an assistant mamanger called her in his office and told Ms. Ravenstein she had been fired "for violating company policy" regarding shoplifters.
Trouble is- Ms. Ravenstein said she didn't know about such a company policy.
I guess WalMart Inc. would have been happier if the man had taken the computer and- so typical of today's screwed-up American society- the criminal walks and the good-intentions employee suffers.
