Kristopher Oswald, a 30 year old employee of Walmart in Hartland, Michigan, is out of a job. He worked for Walmart for only 7 weeks.
While on his break, he observed a woman being beaten up in the parking lot by a man. He asked the woman if she needed help and then the man started attacking him. The man hit him in the head and threatened to kill him.
Oswald was able to get on top of the man, but when he did this, 2 other men came up from behind him, and starting attacking him. It was then that police arrived and put a stop to the fight.
Walmart ended up firing Kristopher Oswald. The reason for this is that they have a workplace violence policy and Kristopher Oswald violated this policy. Oswald was surprised that he was dismissed from his job. He said that he has no regrets for what he did. He would do it again, if the situation arose.
People were outraged when they heard about the firing and made comments about boycotting Walmart over this. By doing this good deed, Oswald should have been commended for this, or even promoted, but this is not what happened in this case.
