(Dean Crouch) was placed on suspension in the days after the incident amid a policy that prohibits employees from placing their hands on customers while they’re in the store. Crouch lost his job on Tuesday, he said, adding that his client had been “suspended and terminated for preventing this thief from stealing this weapon.”

“Academy has decided to, instead of treating him like a hero he is, they terminated his employment effective immediately because he put his hands on Mr. White,” Hobbs told the Tallahassee Democrat.

Left without a job, Hobbs told Fox News that Crouch – who has a wife and two small children – put their home up for sale as “a direct result of him losing his job at Academy Sports.”
. . .
The Tallahassee Police Department, who arrested the suspect, wrote on Facebook that “employees detained a man who tried to run out of the store with a firearm, ammunition, and a backpack, which were stolen from the business.”
. . .
This man did his best to prevent a criminal from taking a gun, thus keeping that gun off the street.  Academy should be embarrassed by not only their willingness to let someone steal a gun but then to mistreat an employee who did what needed to be done to prevent more crimes.

All funds raised will go to making Mr. Crouch's home payments and legal bills.

Looking good folks. Please note this is not for me, but for Dean Crouch who was fired for doing what needed to be done.

I hope he'll be able to get a new job at a better company but until then he'll have bills to pay and I bet there will be lawyers involved so I'm trying to take some of the pressure off of him.

I don't do Facebook, Twitter etc so if some of you want to spread the work it would be greatly appreciated!
