Wow. Only in this day and age could a person be fired from their job for helping save a child from being kidnapped! I am actually baffled at how absurd this is!

A 32-year-old Oregon man lost his Home Depot job, after four years of loyal work, after they claimed he violated the company’s policy. Okay, so he broke their policies. That sounds harmless. He did something “wrong” so they let him go. That is until you find out that the thing he did “wrong” was stop a child from being kidnapped.

Dillon Reagan said, “At the time, the only thing I was thinking about was the child’s safety,” he continued, “I stepped outside and sure enough, there’s this lady who’s frantic and crying, ‘Somebody help me please! He’s stealing my kid, he’s kidnapping my child!’”

Bored Panda reports:

Reagan and a colleague called the police and then, on the advice of the dispatcher, they followed the man on foot until the police arrived. After giving their statements, Reagan said they returned to the store around 10 minutes later, but the next day he was surprised when his supervisor scolded him for “doing the wrong thing.” A month later the company fired him for breaking the company’s safety policy, and even though they’ve since reversed their decision (possibly in light of media attention), Reagan says he isn’t sure if he wants to reclaim his job given the unfair treatment he’s received. What would you do? Let us know in the comments below. (h/t: KGW)
