The incident was captured on video and shows a pair of Sikh clerks confronting an individual who was reportedly attempting to steal items from the store. In the video, one of the clerks is seen using a long wooden plank to subdue the alleged thief, while another man holds him on the floor.

The alleged thief was later examined by medics due to complaints of shoulder and leg pain. The incident has ignited discussions about whether the clerks should be held criminally responsible for their actions.

Some individuals, including civil rights attorney Leo Terrell, argue that the clerks should not face prosecution and that the focus should be on the alleged thief. Terrell attributes the incident to California’s changes in shoplifting penalties, which some believe have led to an increase in retail crime.

The incident highlights the complex and often polarizing discussions surrounding crime prevention, law enforcement, and individuals taking matters into their own hands..
