(via Karl Ushanka) I'm way late with the story but the gist is, the Kroger manager who stopped a bad guy in the act is...quietly stepping down.
Given Kroger's well-known policy on armed employees ("Ew, no!"), this is about as good an outcome as could be expected. I suspect public attention is what kept him from getting the boot. Not so long ago, they would have dumped him within days of the incident.
So it's progress; not everything we might want, but progress nevertheless.
