No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Stop and hold a bank robber for police. Lose your job. Seattle bank teller chases down would-be bank robber, holds him for police, then is fired
SEATTLE - A Seattle bank teller has lost his job because he ran down a would-be bank robber and held him until police arrived. Jim Nicholson, 30, who had worked for more than two years at a Key Bank branch near the Seattle Center, says he understands the bank's strict policy that employees comply with robbery demands and avoid confrontations.
I know the policies exist, and employees should follow policy, but this sucks.
