    Unfortunately, most large companies have the same policy.

    Backward thinking idiots. So I guess if a woman was being beaten half to death in the friggin parking lot an employee is suppose to stand there, watch, and continue munching down on his Snickers? What if that had been that store managers wife being attacked? Guess he would probably go by a dumb ass company policy and stand there and watch too?

    It might sound stupid, but the company policy is sound. Employees are not law enforcement officers, and are bound by the terms of their employment contracts. If the employee had caused the situation to escalate resulting in grievous injury or death, Wal-Mart would have been held liable.

    On the other hand, I'm sure Wally has already offered the employee a job at another store.

    Just last year or two ago a shoplifter shot and killed a police officer in the Austin area -- the employees did exactly what they were told to do -- call the cops and get out of the way.

    Still no .22 LR at any of Wallys I frequent in over one week! Sigh.

    The employee made a decision. All decisions have consequence. He had to make a moral decision, follow policy or help a person in need. Each had consequence. I probably would have done the same.

    The company policy might be sound for them, but not the victim. Any man who would stand and watch a women be assaulted and not help ain't much of a man. You don't have to be a law enforcement officer to stop an assault of a women or another man

    The policy is not the issue. It is the fortitude of the man. ;)
