93. Shoplifting isn't a violent crime.
Even if putting the merchandise in your clothing is a crime, the guy wasn't leaving the store or violently attacking anyone. It would be normal procedure to tell the guy to remove the object, not slam his brains out on the floor. It's relatively inexpensive merchandise compared to a wrongful death lawsuit and the bad publicity. How many people in that area are now going to forbid their kids from going to that store because it's dangerous? Or not go themselves?

Not to mention apparently there's no procedure or training there for handling injured customers. At a busy store that's inexcusable. And if there were cops there, why weren't they attempting to save the child themselves rather than kill his grandpa?
