We always want to point out the “success” stories in contrast to any determined criminal act. This store manager is wise in not wanting his name plastered all over the news as a hero. The customers will never forget his bravery for sure. And now there’s one more documented success of a law-abiding citizen protecting those around him. There will be no charges brought against this unknown hero.
