Houston-area Home Depot employee was run down by a van while trying to
apprehend pallet thieves in 2008.
Home Depot offered a reward of $50,000 for the perp.
Home Depot ups reward to $100,000.
Florida man comes forward with tip leading to arrest of suspect who
Home Depot begins negotiation on reward; their current offer is $40,000.
The article says that HD's position is "He said the companys argument
is that it announced the reward was up to $100,000.
How does anyone, in good concience, start with an award of $50K (even
if it was stated as "up to $50K") then increase it to "up to $100K"
but offer less than the original amount? What was the point of raising
the stated amount? Did they do it just entice someone to come
"I ain't snitching for $50K, but for $100K I'm singin' like a bird!"
If they got a confession via the tip, but think it's only worth $40K,
I wonder what someone would have to have done in order to get closer
to the "up to" amount? Run the perp over with an HD rental truck?
