Wrestle a gun away from a Wal-Mart shoplifter. Your reward: get fired.

Saw this nugget in The Consumerist today:
Four loss-prevention associates were fired for violating company policy when they wrestled a gun away from a suspected shoplifter - in their own back office. Since Wal-Mart's policy AP09 instructs associates not to engage armed criminals, the store went ahead with the firings, regardless of the result. Crappy, but within their rights.
