Were underpaid staff supposed to risk their physical safety to save a Megacorp a few bucks?


AryehCW t1_izfyuq4 wrote

This sounds more like shoplifting than a smash and grab.


Positive_Debate7048 t1_izfyxmv wrote

The wages of the staff are irrelevant. Stores can be held liable if their employees detain or injure thieves.


Unspec7 t1_izk2blx wrote

Depends on the instructions the company gives the employees. Employers are strictly liable (under respondeat superior doctrine) for any torts committed by employees so long as employees are operating within the scope of their employment - if their job specifically says "do not confront thieves", and they still do, they're not operating within the scope of their employment anymore and are personally liable.


Positive_Debate7048 t1_izl1rza wrote

If you’re in uniform on the clock, and on the premises, a court is basically always gonna find that the employee was acting within scope of employment.


Unspec7 t1_izl2v4k wrote

If an employer has specifically instructed its employees to not confront a thief, confronting a thief would most likely no longer be serving the purposes of your employer, regardless of how much goodwill you're trying to show the big man. As such, it would be outside their scope of employment, regardless of uniform or premise.

This is speaking specifically of intentional torts, since injuring a thief likely involved battery.


Positive_Debate7048 t1_izlnexz wrote

I don’t care to debate this but courts have disagreed in the past. There’s plenty of case law on this.


Unspec7 t1_izlntse wrote

Would you mind citing some cases? You're basically saying that case law is stating a bright line rule and contradicting a base principle of torts, which is that scope of employment has no bright line rules. I'd be interested to see the cases and their opinion.

> Won’t Those phones will get locked by Apple?

Probably. Thieves will try to sell them in Craigslist or FB Marketplace regardless; and ask for payment methods without buyer protection (Venmo, Zelle, for example) at very low prices to attract people who cannot buy one othewise.

When buyer receives (if they receive) the phone, they'll realize they don't work, and they can't get their money back.

PSA: beware of cheap iPhones in those sites in the next weeks. Especially without invoices, accessories, listed as open-box and at very low prices. Preferably use a payment method with buyer protection (Paypal Goods and Services is one, PayPal Friends & Family isn't). Ask for proof the device works. Ask for an invoice or proof of purchase.

If the above is not possible, assess the risk and make your decision accordingly

kekelakes t1_izhdlmf wrote

I can see your point but The money that supports a publisher and staff largely comes from advertisers (as it has from the beginning of media) and brand partnerships (sponsored posts)….

Paywalls are something media outlets are doing because they all want to do the same thing. If they don’t, think think they are leaving money on the table but unless the content is very very very exclusive, readers just turn elsewhere which results in less clicks which leads to less advertisers in the long run.

All in all supporting local news is always a good thing I can see both sides but as far as local news goes, it probably does more harm than good especially when people want to read about a crime or emergency like in this case. I don’t think the wall appeared until the end in this case though


objectimpermanence t1_izhg61k wrote

I see what you mean. I just think it’s weird that so many people expect the news to be free while also using ad-blockers, but then they also presumably expect the same level of quality and breadth of coverage that we had back when everyone used to pay for newspapers (in addition to paying for things like classified ads, etc).

The money has to come from somewhere. It’s not like newspapers of today are wildly profitable to begin with, so I can understand why they think they need to have paywalls to meet their profitability targets.

Would be interesting to see if there are any serious studies on whether paywalls are a net negative in the long run.

Stop listening to the bullshit propaganda that wants anarchy, destruction, pain, suffering through violent degenerate criminal acts like stealing.

Stealing closes stores. Stores closing means regular people lose jobs AND the community loses stores and eventually don’t have access to food and other services.

Imagine this:

Imagine you won $500 mil in the lottery.

You don’t do anything charitable with it. You selfishly spend $100 million on houses, mansions, whatever.

Because you “have plenty” and aren’t being charitable with your money, do you deserve to be stolen from?

First, let me cut to the chase: no.

If you say “yes,” the next question would be: who is the morality police? How much is it “okay” to be stolen from you?

If someone considers you “too well off” and wants to steal from you, why not someone with “only” $100 mil?

$50 mil?

$1 mil?




Where does it stop? Where are the “rules” about WHO it’s okay to steal from depending on how much they have and how moral they’ve been in their lives?

There is always someone who could look at you and see you as “having a lot,” and that person could use your argument to fuck up your whole life. It’s a slippery slope of “exceptions here, why not exceptions there.”

So the obvious answer is: no one should steal from anyone. Ever. It’s fair. It’s just. It’s right.

Your argument is the opposite. It’s wrong. It’s sick. It leads to violence, as I’ve said. Perpetuating breaking into something and stealing is advocating for pain and violence. Destruction. Suffering. That’s what you are advocating for.

Stealing=wrong is the simple, fair way to avoid pain and violence (not that there’s still not pain or violence, but if stealing were okay then there’s be A LOT more of it).

It's not a debate. The fact that you think it is indicates even further that you're one of those sad, useless dweebs who yell out DEBATE ME and then throw out the dumbest, most useless non sequiturs to obfuscate. You're a dumb, sad, stupid sack of shit who imagines the world was something else.

You're up to 60 bucks. Who do I send the bill to.

It is a debate. It’s you vs reality. If a store is losing money from thievery, it will close, and that will hurt regular working class folks.

Last time I checked, if your place of work closes, you lose your job.

It’s not “sticking it to the CEO.” It’s hurting regular people like you.

You just want to take what’s not yours because you’re that pathetic you can’t earn it. This is your excuse. How degenerate of you.

You're repeating yourself as if it has any bearing on what I said. You're so fucking stupid you can't figure out that we're talking about two separate things. At this point, you're just so sad and dumb, that I'm not even gonna waste thought out insults on you anymore. I'm just going to copy/paste "you're a waste of oxygen and a fucking moron" every time you reply to me, because that's really all you're worth now.

You don’t debate. You don’t offer up anything. You just insult because your vocabulary and mentality is stuck as 12 years old. Come up with something better. You can’t though because everything I’m saying is true.

Stealing is never a victim-less crime, and you’re not God. You don’t get to pass that judgement on anyone and say to anyone “I deserve to steal from you.” You’re not some kind of guru like you think you are. Grow up.

Correct. This isn't a debate. you're a waste of oxygen and a fucking moron

It’s a debate when you sit here and say stealing is not a victimless crime, or when you say you are the almighty authority to say who deserves to be treated like shit, especially common everyday workers.

Why do you bother replying? At least I’m not just copy/pasting a reply. Why not just stop? At least with me I’m actually coming up with a response.
