    first thought would have been that the guy was likely a spouse abuser beating up his wife or girlfriend, or that he was maybe a rapist trying to kidnap his victim. The thought that she may have been a shoplifter, and he was a security guard probably would not enter my mind.

    When the guy pursued the woman outside, he was placing himself at risk because many people out there would view such an incident the same way I would--and might even step in to help the woman.

    If he had injured her, she could have probably sued the store for much more than the merchandise was worth, plus she could have probably filed assault charges against him, since he was just a security guard, and not a police officer.
