Dudes and Dudettes…after you read and watch this report, would you please explain to me why in the world this man should have ever lost his job? Seems to me he was defending himself from a bunch of filthy thugs after one of them attacked him first! – This country is upside down…I’ve about had it at times, this is one of them!
See what you think. – This is via TB:
A Texas gas station clerk who shot a man who first punched him in the face has lost his job, the store’s owner said.
Police said the Houston-area Valero station clerk was acting in self-defense when 21-year-old Alexander Calloway and two companions tried to enter the store after hours at 3:30 a.m., KHOU-TV reported. Surveillance video released Tuesday by store owner George Hlaiheo shows Calloway first punching the clerk in the face before the clerk pulls out a gun and opens fire.
Calloway’s companions rushed him to a nearby fire station, after which he was transported to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition, the station reported.
Community members have rallied in front of the store and called for the clerk’s arrest, but Hlaiheo said he stands by his employee’s right to defend himself — except that he no longer works there.
“For the sake of the community, we feel very strongly that he won’t be coming back to work,” Hlaiheo said.
According to KHOU, the same clerk was shot in the leg during a hold-up last year, potentially explaining his armed response.
This man shouldn’t lose his job in any way shape or form. This guy works…something I bet the thugs that are in the story don’t do. In fact…the criminal thugs should be behind bars for a long time, they should lose their freedom! The owner of the station should have defended him to the hilt, not let him go, or fire him! Nothing like political pressure from a handful of losers in this scenario…of course the race-card issue is used here as well, we all know it…no matter how subtle the reports try to portray this. Self-defense should be first and foremost…simple as that.
Seeing that this man has been shot before during a hold-up, still held a dangerous job instead of being on the government dole…he should be held in high esteem, he should be given some kind of award! – What say you?
Side-note: I just read where the ‘Black Panthers‘ were involved with the protest against the clerk…they called for his arrest! ~ You need to read about it here.
