Walmart Worker Gets Run Over Trying To Stop Robbery

They’re not paying you minimum wage to be a hero.

A 24-year old Walmart electronics worker is in critical condition after he tried to prevent a robbery. A female customer asked him about hard drives and then grabbed a boxed hard drive out of his hands and fled the store. The Walmart worker pursued. She jumped into a car with a waiting driver. He tried to stop her and the car, but it sped away, knocking him down and running him over.

Do not risk your personal health trying to stop a robbery. That’s what cops and insurance are for.
