Bet He Loses His Job

Police in North Carolina say a Pizza Hut employee used his own handgun to shoot and kill one of three armed robbers holding up the store.
Over in the UK, wouldn't that qualify as a "workplace fatality"? Or maybe discrimination, for when it comes to citizens killing criminals, criminals are apparently a protected class.

But I digress.

The big boys in Corporate HQs for retail chains and franchise operations hate it when one of their lowest-level minions kills an armed robber. First off, that robber and his peeps might also be customers or even future hires. Second, it is far less costly for Corporate to hire replacements for slain employees than to pay civil litigation defense lawyers.

So expect that the employee who killed the robber will lose his job.

(What, you thought I was referring to this guy?)

A friend of mine worked for the Hut a few years ago. He shot a armed robber, 3 in the guts, the guy lived. The robber got 17 years and my buddy got fired.

I forgot. I deliver pizza for a small company and not only does the boss let me carry, the owner of the franchise open carries.

I have to go into some sketchy areas as part of my job sometimes. Any kind of carry, on any property, is disallowed. Hopefully the question of whether my life is in danger will continue to not come up.
