Asking a Customer to Mask Up Caused Her Death

As the US continues to open up from the pandemic and more states roll back their maks mandates; businesses are now able to make their own rules for their stores. A store in Georgia asks their customers to please wear a mask while shopping. This week one of their customers took extreme offense to be asked to wear a mask and after a brief argument shot the cashier in the head.

What can be done to protect front-line employees that are simply following rules of their stores and management?

She didnt get shot for asking him to wear his mask. He had issues to begin with. And HE LEFT after the confrontation and came back with a gun, shot her and a police officer. Her actions in no way caused this. That is like blaming dead kids at school shootings, which this country likes to do too. 'Shoulda been nicer, shoulda befriended them.' Stop victim blaming.

Well Victor was not exactly an outstanding citizen. Based on his prior record he should not have had a firearm, how's that law working out? He is not a nice guy. in 2018 "1. BATTERY - FAMILY VIOLENCE 2. CRUELTY TO CHILDREN IN THE 3RD DEGREE 3RD OR SUBSEQUENT OFFENSE 3. WILLFUL OBSTRUCTION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS - MISDEMEANOR. So how do we keep the world safe from the Victor Lee Tucker, Jr.'s of the world? Don't ask me, I worked in Philadelphia.

How do you get victim blaming from that?? I doubt anyone with any type of logic takes that away. It isnt really necessary to say "The guy had a previous record etc etc.....I think from his overreaction that is a given. DO I think the guy would have come back if he wasnt asked to wear a mask...Actually, no I dont. But I do think if it wasnt this incident it would of been another that could of had nothing to do with the topic of wearing a mask. But just because that may of set a psycho off does not translate to "Therefore you are victim blaming".

I think your looking for similiar before this guy even posted something you could zero in on.

With that being said I also think it is unreasonable to ask "How can we protect frontline workers who are following rules" based off of a rare extreme occurrence. Each store has their own right to deem what they want their policies to be....Sadly you run into the occasional nutjob.
Just an opinion, nothing more.

They don't get paid enough to enforce such stringent rules - especially on strangers.

I worked at a health care facility. One customer threatened a coworker with a gun. Another threatened to commit battery upon me. The health care facility stood up for the customers and ultimately laid us all off this past week after cheating us thousands of dollars in differential and emergency pay. Sadly, there are no worker protection laws in Florida and the feds are less than responsive to worker abuse/theft claims.

It is annoying when some peppy cashier tries to tell you what to do, but dude you know that was probably coming from a much crazier sentiment that she had nothing to do with. Well at least she died without any dirty Covid 😂

The person that shot the cashier, if he didn't want to wear a mask then he should have went somewhere else to shop. He didn't have to shoot someone over something so minor how sad for the cashier's family and my family sends them prayers.
