No. I said reasonable force, the same standard as self defense. The store would be allowed to use reasonable force to secure their property and detain the subject until police arrive. Now, the subject can cause the store to elevate their response.....and it can indeed be escalated to deadly force. Cameras will be a very good investment for businesses.
