An Academy sports employee in Florida,Dean Crouch was fired for---
touching a customer.
Dean tackled a man who stole a gun and ammo.
Says when he gets out he would steal again.

I can't substantiate this, but my guess is the guy stealing a gun and ammo does not intend to use it for sporting or otherwise legal purposes.

And Academy's response is to sack the guy that is looking out for the general public?

The no touch policy applies to confronting shoplifters. This is obviously not the ordinary shoplift though. Almost every company has a policy against average employees confronting suspected shoplifters, that is reserved for trained loss prevention associates or managers. In most cases the LP personnel have a no touch policy as well though many do still allow LP to subdue shoplifters physically.

Regardless of all those policies every company has a policy against anyone no matter what position confronting a shoplifter with a weapon.

Yeah, and such policies enable criminals to ply their trade.

Having in the past worked parttime at an Academy Sports store, I can confirm that is their policy. Only thing we were supposed to do was 1) notify a manager, 2) notify the loss control staff, 3) if the person is still in the store, flood them with associates asking if they need assistance, 4) try to get the description of their vehicle, license plate, direction departed to give to the police. But never was an employee to confront or physically try to stop an individual.

Does the no touch policy include “motor boating”?

I worked at Academy from 99-05. This was before the sold out and were still family owned. It was far different back then. Something we did probably got the company sued and the new policy put into place. roflmao

There is a specific exception if Stormy Daniels is doing the shoplifting.

The "no touch" policy when strictly enforced absolves companies from serious lawsuits.

1-Policy in place.
2-Violator fired.
3-Violator acted on their own...sue them.

The Academy story in Portland Texas must have a no touch policy. All the fishing rods were on top of the lure racks, you have to get an someone with a ladder to get them down if you wanted to look at one. Probably to much breakage, I don't buy their rods, just noticed.


Thanks, Billy
