Yup, the plain fact is that you give up virtually all your rights—unless specifically protected by other laws—the second you show up for work. And those legal protections for everything from health and safety to sexual harassment are rife with loopholes and depend on very high standards of proof.

You're right again.

@Jim Jude. I have been in similar situations many times where alcohol led to innane actions by my friends or others. I would just quietly leave without saying anything to anyone. Most of the time people didn't even realize I had left and would retell the stories of the night's activities as if I had been there the whole time. Try it next time.
If it was me, as long as I was 100% certain that the person would not shoot me regardless of what I did or did not do (and that is probably a statistical impossibility!) then I would basically offer him the key to the store and gladly help me take anything and Everything inside the store. I'd tell him he can have it all and I'll help him cart it away.
On the other hand, point a gun at me, and with today's societal attitudes, and I am gonna go off on him and screw company policy. Its a simple choice...the policy of your life.
So wait, people bitch that our society does nothing to help and then you get punished when yo do.
LOL at some of the comments from the linked article.

What's worse is that he didn't even physically intervene. He just asked the woman if she needed help and got jumped by three guys. The impression I get from the policy they used to fire him is that it's supposed to prevent employees from spearing shoplifters into display racks when they try to run off with merchandise. Apparently, though, you're liable to lose your job even if you're trying to prevent injury to an another or just happen to be a victim of random violence yourself.
Reminds me of mailmen who get fired because they were attacked by dogs.
Edit: Maybe part of the reason why they fired him was because he fought back after getting repeatedly punched. He apparently utilized his superior street-fighting abilities to pin the first assailant to the ground, but got anti-grapple stomped by the other two.
Perhaps as a Walmart employee he was obliged to run away and cry in the women's room after getting assaulted, or maybe curl up in a ball and offer the muggers his ass for a good session of cornholing in order to appease them (That's actually how you're supposed to get out of student loan debt).
