And that is part of what is wrong in this world.

Bring down the corporation, I say. To hell with them all.
"In a split-second decision, when someone is screaming for help, what do you do?" he asked. "I did what I thought was right. I still feel like I did the right thing. I couldn't look at myself in the mirror the next day if I didn't help that lady."

But still, if people started watching out for other people, what effect would that have on crime?
Lemon.Fresh, I get what you are saying. I felt something when I read your conviction. When challenged: Should someone risk so much for a stranger? Your response was a solid "yes".
Logically you are wrong... but humanly, you are so right. I want the world to be a better place, where the people are better people and we can trust and rely on each other. Just the basics.

I worked parttime at Walmart's in 2002 and 2003 and we did not observe this policy at all. Store management was famous for all but inducing customers to steal so they could rough them up. Our store was sued after I left because the assistant manager and a deli clerk grabbed a woman and accidentally broke her arm. One of several suits that year companywide, I think that is why they revised the policy.
Out of curiosity, did your store bathrooms have video recorders to see if employee were stealing? Ours apparently did according to the shift manager. We even had sound devices in the cooler to check on what we were talking about. Two male coworkers were fired one night when we were stocking a cooler when one held up two fruits to his chest and said to the other, "hey, honey, how you like my melons?" Boom, sexual harassment dismissal. No way they could have heard that without a microphone.

How the hell can he be fired anyway? Is there a possibility that he could sue over unlawful termination or something? The company has to have a legimate reason to fire someone right? And wasn't he technically still on his lunch hour also?
