Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Spinz 'I need to work': Texas veteran says he was fired from Home Depot after confronting shoplifters

A 70-year-old veteran says he’s out of a job after he tried to stop some thieves from leaving the Home Depot store where he worked. It appears what he saw as doing the right thing was against company policy. Jim Tinney says trying to do the right thing has guided him pretty well in life. “In the Army, they train you to do things like that,” Tinney said. Recently, Tinney said he saw three men carrying tool sets worth thousands of dollars to the checkout area at Home Depot. He said they seemed nervous. “One of them hollered ‘let’s go,’..

They should have given him a bonus & a raise.

So Home Depot just advertised to thieves that they will not stop them from stealing.

That totally sucks. Home Depot sucks in a lot of other ways also.

At the Home Depot a bit back and a negro goes flying by me with a big box tool and out the front door. Security chases the negro and he hits the parking lot and heads toward the street.
So I ask the security kid why he is not chasing the negro?
"Store policy. Once they get out the front door were to call the police and NOT pursue or touch them." So if yah want free at Home Depot just make it out the front door.

Let me tell you, at one local Home Depot some "security" guy thought my oldest son was stealing something, actually he had the old screw in his pocket and was trying to match it with a new one that he was buying and they stopped him and tried to go into his pocket without asking for permission or saying who he was, well the shit did hit the big fan because my son knocked the guy out cold and stayed there until cops arrived, they soon discontinued the practice of searching folks without their authorization. He was told never to go back to that store.

Your boy is one big lad and I damn sure would not put my hand in his pocket without asking. Hell I would not even want to mess with his little boy, he has that Jack Dempsey "Whada yah lookin at?" look about him.

He can go back anyway; sans a court order they have to let the public in to shop!

This was the other son, before he was a high school principal, now he can not afford to do that sort of things or he'll get in trouble. But he has a bad temper, just like his dad. And he is bigger than me.

I'm surprised I never got fired from Walgreens for catching shoplifters. Their policy is that if the person makes it out the door, it's theirs. They didn't like me tackling the kid in the parking lot who had a case of beer under each arm, but they didn't fire me, either.

The kid went on to commit a triple murder during a robbery at the Pizza Hut across the street about 6 months later. Oh yeah, he was an illegal, too.

He didn't know the guy was a security guard, he just felt a hand going for his pocket , grabbed it and hit the guy with a hook, he thought the guy was dead at first and freaked out, mind you a 6'5" guy at about 270 pounds at age 30 can hit hard. There was no report, the guy got up within a couple minutes and he had to put some ice on his hand before replacing the screw.. He now goes to a HD that's closer to his house.

It's the rules now. Be a sheep. Companies just raise prices to cover theft.
The legal,honest consumers pay for it. Modern business ideas suck.
