The Sacredness of the Marketplace
AbstractPolice respond to a call from a business where an angry customer has allegedly destroyed computer monitors, destroyed glass product cases, and physically attacked the cashier even after the employee offered to refund the customer’s money and replace the product at no charge. In another incident in a different city, a customer allegedly calls a cashier a profanity and the cashier allegedly retaliates by grabbing the customer by the hair and beating the person on the head. Other people come to the aid of the cashier. Other national news is created when customers are physically dragged off airplanes that have been overbooked. No shortage of examples exists.
