Kroger Store Manager Confronts Shoplifter Armed With a Knife, Loses Job

A Kroger store manager lost his job after he confronted a shoplifting suspect who was holding a knife.

Cell phone video shot by a shopper shows the manager taking on the suspect in the parking lot of a Kroger store in Arlington. The manager eventually takes the knife from the man and throws the suspect to the ground.

Kroger said in a statement to FOX4 the manager's actions were "not a reflection of our company's fraud prevention protocol, procedures or training."

Arlington police said the shoplifter, Claude Medlock, 51, had a lengthy criminal history that includes theft and robbery convictions. Police told FOX4 they didn't consider the manger's actions criminal.

The Kroger store manager had worked in loss prevention for 13 years and believed he handled the situation properly.

Drone Strike in Yemen Kills 9 Al Qaeda Militants

SANAA, Yemen – A Yemeni military official says an American drone strike has killed nine suspected Al Qaeda militants and inadvertently killed and wounded some civilians.

The official said the early Saturday raid targeted a car carrying the militants in the Sawmaa area in the al-Bayda province at the time another car was nearby carrying civilians.

At least six civilians were killed and wounded, the official said on condition of anonymity in line with military regulations.

The deputy governor of al-Bayda was assassinated Tuesday by suspected Al Qaeda militants.

Yemen's branch of Al Qaeda, also known as Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, is considered to be the most dangerous in the world. It overran much of the south in 2011. Yemen's army, supported by U.S. military experts and drone strikes, pushed them back, but clashes continue

Obama Adm. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom Post Remains Unfilled

At the National Prayer Breakfast on February 6th, Obama said is he 'looking forward to appointing a new ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom'
The office within the State Department develops policies regarding religious freedom and monitors religious discrimination and persecution worldwide

Here we are 2 months later and the post remains unfilled. President Obama could name somebody today, but refuses to do so.

 President Barack Obama nominated Doctor Suzan Johnson Cook to be his Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, but not surprisingly, that nomination didn't come until almost a year and a half after being sworn-in in 2009.

Religious persecution around the world and protecting religious freedom are not high on Obama's list.
