Last month in Michigan, two armed suspects entered a Walgreens pharmacy and thanks to the efforts of pharmacist Jeremey Hoven who confronted the bad guys with his gun and sent them flying, nobody was hurt. Walgreens response to Mr. Hoven’s heroic actions was to fire him on the spot. The reason why he was fired according to Walgreens is that they have great surveillance systems that make his actions unnecessary and dangerous.
However, nobody will be fired from another pharmacy robbery that happened this past Sunday but this time in Medford, a suburb of NYC where an armed criminal entered to rob prescription medication. Yes, nobody will be fired because the four unarmed employees were murdered by the suspect.
But have no fear, there is great video of the suspect. All is well in this world.
Update: Tango makes the notation that 2 employees and 2 customers were murdered.
