    The current video making the rounds on the internet shows a Best Buy employee preventing an alleged robbery at a local store in Aiea, Hawaii.

    Summer Tapasa-Sataraka, the Hawaiian woman who thwarted the alleged robbery, received a job offer by none other than UFC president Dana White after Best Buy fired the 24-year-old for her actions.

    White made the following post on Instagram, where he uploaded video footage of Tapasa-Sataraka in action.

    Last I checked you need to leave the store with an unpaid for item for it to be theft. I say that was a good firing.

    Innocent until proven guilty, bro. Clearly that gentleman just got turned about on his way to the cash, or maybe his kids prefer TV to bread and he's just trying to provide.

    Think it's cool as hell of Dana to see this and want to give this woman a job, that will likely change her life, when Best Buy and others have fired employees for trying to stop thieves because of some bullshit "company policy".

    In most places it's actually against the law rather than a company policy.

    My brother worked in a grocery store for a summer and one his coworkers went to stop a shoplifting junkie. The junkie tried to hit people with his skateboard but ended up getting the shit kicked out of him and his skateboard was kept as a trophy. I think that dude still works there

    I saw some post on reddit about a lowes employee that got fired for stopping some guy trying to steal some electronics he went to the parking lot and got them back. I think it has to do with the company not wanting to get sued by either the injured employee or the thieve if either of them gets injured or killed.

    this law is leading to a lot of meth addicts and bums stealing things here it is a slap on the wrist now to steal something worth 950 bucks.

    California’s Proposition 47 downgraded a variety of “non-serious, nonviolent crimes” that had previously been considered felonies to misdemeanors. These include shoplifting, grand theft, receiving stolen property, forgery, fraud, and writing bad checks. As long as the total value of the stolen property is under $950, only a ghost of an offense has occurred. A thief may now steal something under that limit on a daily basis and it will never rise to felony status.

    That wasn't the type of law I'm referring to. It sn't theft until you've left the store with the unpaid items. Otherwise what's the stop Moana from laying a beating on everyone that picks something up in the store and then claiming "they were going to steal it!"?
