Papa John’s delivery driver shoots robbery suspect
"She arrived at the location and a male began approaching the vehicle she thought was there to pick up the pizza," Capt. Stephen Fore with the DeKalb County Police Department said. "When he got to her he produced a handgun and forced her out of the vehicle and on to the ground."
Fore said she had her own handgun in her pocket and was able to reach for it and shoot the suspect.For the record, this is the best possible outcome for this situation. Bad guy down. Good girl still alive and in one piece. Unfortunately the story won't end here with a much deserved "happily ever after". There are going to be consequences, the police are going to "investigate". There might be civil or criminal proceedings against her. Then there is this:
Young talked to the delivery driver’s mother by phone.
She said that her daughter is still in shock, shaken and scared about the encounter. Her daughter is now hoping she can keep her job.
Her family is scared she may lose her job because she was carrying a gun at work, even though the gun may have saved her life.It's apparently against the rules to carry a gun at work. I understand why an employer would have such a rule, liability. I also understand why a employer would chose to ignore enforcing such a rule in this instance. Actually there are two reasons, good and common sense.
