It is a shame the once proud Walgreens is being disgraced by it's CFO. If a Walgreens employee is found to be using a drug illegally they are terminated. Let's see if that also applies to the people with the money!!!

Did you ever stop to think that maybe the criminal justice system is administered by a government body for a reason ? What the corporate system contrives in the way of disciplinary action is related to the simple will and pleasure of an employment arrangement. That's why we have courts as loss prevention folks do not enforce what is legal but merely what pleases the ownership of a given enterprise. Maybe this sorry alcoholic will finally discover the limits of his power in society.

Well, DUHHHHH. I'm DrunkWade was commenting on the double standard of the corporate policies towards it's upper level officers vs the front line employees. He's not comparing the justice system to loss prevention.

Well any fool KNOWS that the upper level officers have nothing but contempt for the thoughts of those on the front lines. Budgets are created to exploit careers supposedly caught in the middle of economic chaos. But truthfully the front line guys are not as expendable as those who carefully project a delusion of leadership. Deep down they dread this ultimate discovery and seek comfort through intoxication.
