Wallace was convicted of breaking and entering and larceny in 2006. He was fined and given three years probation. In May, he was convicted of carrying a concealed gun and given another year of probation.
The criminal ‘justice’ system has this man’s blood on their hands. Had he been in jail for the above crimes, he would be alive today...
He sure did. It’s tough to put myself in the same position, but I bet I’d have drawn the moment I felt my life in danger, not minutes down the line with beating after beating.
Which is, of course, why us Pennsylvanianers need to put pressure on our reps to pass HR 40 (Stand your Ground), which only last night was guaranteed a vote next week!
Hats off to the deliveryman for shooting these thugs. I am relieved that he did in fact have a concealed carry permit. The first reports were sketchy at best, but this actually gives his age and background.
Too bad the newspaper cannot proofread any better, there are a couple of silly errors in the story.
Any employee fired for violating a companies policy prohibiting self defense should seek a class action law suit against the company. While I normally detest most “class action” suits, there is and has been an organized campaign by anti gun groups to convince businesses that they need to disarm all their employees. If you prevent me from protecting myself on your premises, then you become 100% liable to provide protection, and any failure should be actionable.
My prayers for he and his family as they go through a horrible time, but by every fact this was a totally justified shoot and may have saved the lives of him and his manager.
I find it interesting that the manager went across the street to get a drink after closing. Doesn’t Pizza Hut serve beverages? I smell an accomplice.
Pizza Hut would much prefer the deliverymen and clerks to die. Pizza Hut doesn’t want to alienate a portion of its customer base by allowing them to be killed or wounded. You can always replace employees. It is harder to replace customers.
Witnesses heard gunshots from the inside of the store, followed almost immediately by a shouted, “You bitches want pepperoni with that?”
A ‘happy’ ending, given the extreme circumstances.
Two or three less predators on the streets of Charlotte.
