Lululemon CEO Calvin McDonald defended the firing of two employees who confronted three masked thieves robbing a Georgia store and called the police, with McDonald saying that company policy is for staff to “let the theft occur” and not try to intervene. “We have a zero-tolerance policy that we train our educators on around engaging during a theft,” McDonald told CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” on Friday, with “educators” being the company’s way of referring to their employees. “We put the safety of our team, of our guests, front and center. It’s only merchandise,” he added. “They’re trained to step back, let the theft occur, know that there’s technology and there’s cameras


I suggest employees do the shop lifting for the thieves, and carry the booty out to their cars for them. ( video linked)

If I were an employee I would just start walking out with free stuff when my shift was over. One thief is as good as another.

These policies are common and are probably appropriate no matter how angry staff might get watching theft occur on their shift. On the other hand being terminated for this cause should automatically support being hired into the police force.

Chances are not too many of his employees are endeared to that CEO. As instead of firing his two employees outright, that CEO could have taken the two employees aside and explained to them his and the corporate policies that call for thieves to safely shoplift from their retail outlets and then gone on.

Doesn't sound like good policy for the safety of employees and customers. If thieves know Lululemon allows shoplifting, what's to stop thieves from robbing the employees or customers too?

Why even have employees ? Just cover up the cash register and mark your product prices as FREE. Better hire an employee to take care of the weekly re-stocking.

I can’t read the article because I refuse to register on the site. Did the employees actually confront the thieves or did they just call the police? I can sort of see not wanting a physical or verbal confrontation, but what’s wrong with calling the police? I told a cashier in a CVS to do just that back in the 90’s. I was in the store with my 8 year old daughter when two black guys got into a fight back near the pharmacy. I walked up front and told the cashier to call 911. She stood there agape for several seconds until I yelled at her and only then did she pick up the phone. Then I got us the hell out of there.

Tucker Carlson dropped the second episode of his new “Tucker on Twitter” series on Thursday and it was molten hot as the former Fox News host discussed the altering of the nation’s “taboos” so that racism and even pedophilia have now become permissible. Carlson’s latest video on the social media platform came after his former employer accused him of breaching his contract with the conservative network after the first installment drew over 100 million views, although the sequel may struggle to crack the same number due to it coming on the same night that the federal indictment of former President Donald J. Trump was announced.

You bet someone will use this for campaign fodder, especially if Gov. Ron DeSantis is involved. Remember when some illegals arrived on Martha’s Vineyard, and every white liberal on the island panicked? They were whining about how this infusion of new people, there were fewer than 50, would essentially break the island budget-wise. The liberals deported the illegals off the island to a military base, exposing the Left for their rank hypocrisy regarding immigrants. Affluent white progressives want illegal aliens for the census count to increase their foothold in Congress by creating new districts represented by members of Congress of similar racial and cultural backgrounds.

Special Counsel Jack Smith’s prosecutors questioned at least one witness after an employee at Mar-a-Lago drained the Florida resort’s pool in October and ended up flooding a room full of computer servers that maintained surveillance video, according to a leak to CNN. Jack Smith has been investigating Trump after he stored presidential records at Mar-a-Lago and whether the former president tried to obstruct the probe. The IT equipment and servers were not damaged by the flooding, however, federal prosecutors still found it suspicious. Since the flooding happened after Trump received a subpoena for classified records and surveillance footage, prosecutors may use it to build an obstruction conspiracy case, CNN reported.

They may be right about the fiscal ADHD on Capitol Hill, however, let’s make sure we are keeping track of the right discussion. It is true that both the growing deficit and long-term stability of Social Security are valid concerns that should draw the attention of Americans. These issues deserve the attention of all voters -- just not in the same sentence.
