  •  I was told the exact same thing (8+ / 0-)

    I worked in retail from 2001 through half of 2006. I was also told that the dangers inherent in trying to apprehend a possible shoplifter were just not worth it. I was also told it was dangerous because if we accidentally hurt the customer, the company could get sued.

    I do remember that there were some young male employees who used to talk about wanting to tackle anyone who tried to steal from us, but I always made sure to make it clear that that was not what we did.
