That's a very intelligent woman, and I'm proud that she works locally-- I'm in the Bay area too. She should get a job in criminal justice in some capacity: she's obviously very observant and quick thinking. Congratulations, Ms. Ramirez, from Kate in Berkeley!

Ms Ramirez changed a child and a family's life. She had an impact that few people can simply by being observant and acting on instinct. This reminds me of the woman in a grocery store who identified Brittany Mae Smith with her "abductor" after her mother was mudered by the boyfriend. Tina Smith was my friend. She was beaten to death. Jeffrey Easley, the "abductor" in is prison for murder. Rest in peace friend.
Ms Ramirez, thank you for your observational skills and using them for a greater good. You should be proud and hold your head high because you saved this child. I hope you reap rewards for helping lead this precious child home.

First off that worker deserves a raise, a big one. Any worker who is that much aware of what's going around them and acts on it deserves one. Second, that pedo who stated that he was just as afraid as that child is a scum bag! People who are afraid of doing things don't usually do them! What a lame statement, he's just covering his a** the best way he can.

Thank GOD that someone took following their "intuition" seriously. How many times have we all felt that something was about to happen and did not act on it....dismissing it as foolish or unimportant?
Sometimes the mere fact that we are running late, saves us from being right in the middle of an accident or other mishap. Many people who were supposed to be in at work in the Twin Towers on the 9/11 day, were saved by having unusual circumstances occur, that caused them to be late and miss being in the building at the time the aircraft hit. We must learn to listen to our "intuition" more often....even if it means....not being on time. Not everything in life has to be perfect. This young lady deserves a promotion simply because she was on duty as an "Asset Protection" employee and she was doing her job keenly and acturately, watching people....is what she was hired to do. She wasn't slacking...and it saved a child from something horrific.

I used to like posting comments on HuffPo articles. Hated most of the articles without any type of editing but loved commenting on them. A couple of weeks ago HuffPo said I needed to "sign in" in order to leave a comment. The only way it allowed a sign in was if you created a Facebook page. Never had a Facebook page, never will. But I really do miss commenting. Oh well, at least I can still comment on AOL articles.

Isn't it customary for these retailers to then fire employees involved in situations like this for violation of some obscure company policy? No? Great job, lady!

That's exactly what I was going to say. It seem the big box retailers almost always fire an employee that helps a someone unless it's ringing up their groceries.
