Would-be Waffle House robber shot by armed citizen
A man attempting to rob a Waffle House in Union City, near Atlanta, early Monday morning had his plans foiled when an armed patron shot him.
Chad Pollard was at the restaurant with his childhood friend, Jonathan Sutton, along with about a dozen other customers when the attempted robbery occurred. Pollard is a security guard and Sutton is an Atlanta police officer. Both men were off-duty at the time, but both men were also packing pistols.
Good on Chad and good on Jonathan. They did the right thing at the right time and everyone is better off for their personal preparations and their willingness to "get involved". Not to dis Jonathan, he had a gun pointed at his head at the time: I note it was the armed citizen that shot the bad guy. Even when you have a cop on hand and he has a gun, sometimes it pays to cover your own butt.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found McAfee lying on the floor, bleeding profusely from the gunshot wounds and saying, “Man, I’m just trying to get some money for my baby.”
McAfee was transported to a local hospital where his condition is not currently known, but he remains under police custody.
Other than McAfee, no one was injured during the incident and no charges are expected to be filed against Pollard, who acted in self-defense and is now being hailed a hero.
The shooting is being called "self defense" and the shooter "a hero", no charges are expected. Why isn't Jesse and B.O. all over this? Call Eric Holder this brother who was only trying to get money for his baby had his civil rights taken away.
