The West coast is a far-left wuss factory.  That goes for much of BC too, sorry guys don't shoot the messenger.  #GreenParty2021.

They should find that robber and give him a free house and then tuck him into bed and give him a good cuddle.

Yeah a real man would tackle the guy and put his own health and safety on the line for CVS's profits.

Because dumb dumbs in the States are using it as an example of what happens when you defund the police even though it has nothing to do with it.

The security guy?

Well, I think the idea is having a security guard will deter some theft but if a guy is brazen enough like the guy in the video you can't expect them to put their skin on the line.

So why not just dress up one of their own employees in security garb instead of hiring security companies? What is he getting paid for?

I agree, private security firms are dumb, but i also don't expect some schlub making like 30 grand a year to physically intervene to deal with a guy who could very well be packing heat in a pharmacy over a bunch of stolen toothbrushes when cops are pulling down three times that.

What's the point of having them then?  To call the cops when a robbery happens?  Couldn't a cashier do that?

He could have at least tried a little harder to take back the stolen merch, as in tried at all.
I queef, therefore I am.

Generally, they are there to, perhaps, provide a deterrent, and as witnesses to any crimes that take place.  They’re not there to intervene. 

A - they get paid squat.  These security companies are not hiring ex cops, or even bar-bouncers, as their security.  Often, they are unskilled people who lack skills to get other employment.

B - they have nearly no training in dealing with a physical altercation

If they try and intervene, they are more than likely to just get their asses beat.

This exactly. Not sure what's so hard to understand about this. And you know what? Even if the guy was supposed to physically intervene, no one should put their own physical safety at risk for corporate profits.

It doesn't hurt corporate profits, it just becomes a cost of doing business that gets passed on to the consumer. It does hurt small business and drives them out of neigbourhoods with high crime rates.

Weird because the biggest complaints about this apparent epidemic of shoplifting is coming from big corporations.

Probably because little people don't have the resources to make big newsworthy complaints.
