Fired for saving the day

Four Wal-Mart workers who disarmed a gun-toting robber at their store have been rewarded for their valor — by being fired.

SALT LAKE CITY – Four Wal-Mart workers who disarmed a gun-toting robber at their store have been rewarded for their valor — by being fired.

Wal-Mart said the actions of the four, at the company's store in Layton near Salt Lake City, had “put others at risk.”

The thief took a laptop and produced a gun when challenged. The four held him and disarmed him. Wal-Mart said company policy was broken when staff tackled the raider.
