NEW YORK (AP) A worker at a 7-Eleven in Brooklyn has lost his job after a group of employees were recorded ripping the clothes off a suspected shoplifter.
The video was recorded by a bystander Wednesday, and then promptly posted online.

It begins with two clerks dragging the man back into the store and continues as they wrestle him into submission.
In the process, his shirt is ripped off, his pants fall down and he is left struggling in his boxers.

Through it all, the man shouts "I got nothing, man!"
A 7-Eleven spokeswoman says the company fired one worker and will retrain two others.

Police said the shoplifting suspect was already wanted in another case.

He faces charges including robbery and assault.

I've been there. What you said reminds me of my first job at Mussels. I let the local homeless guy bag a meal and I'd turn a blind eye, on many occasions. I could have been sacked, easily. One time my coworker saw and he let rip at the homeless guy but didn't tell the boss. He later saw the homeless guy and threatened to punch him for taking advantage of my kindness. Well, we all know who really deserves a punch. It's suckish.

Thanks for responding.

That is one of the downsides of having a soft heart. People who will take advantage of it. It's almost a given.

Yep. Really suckish no matter which way you slice or dice it.
