Best Buy Employee loses job over stopping shoplifter

So, this fellow stops a shoplifter and loses his job.  Its a corporate policy that employees cannot take physical action to stop a theft.  I suspect this is a lawsuit prevention issue (not wanting to get sued by an employee or the thief), but its still insane.  It makes me not want to shop at Best Buy, but I wonder how many other stores have the same policy.  Hmm, next time I am at a store I think I might ask them.
