Dudes and Dudettes…I guess the lesson here is instead of defending oneself, it’s better to lay down and die! Seems Pizza Hut has a policy that will demote you if use any kind of weapon when being attacked by a gang of thugs. This policy is beyond ridiculous to anyone normal with a brain that works, this is just one more major problem with what’s wrong with this country…in my humble opinion.
Here’s the report. – This is via FNI:
Protect yourself from attackers and receive … a demotion? A pizza delivery man in Maryland who fought off a group of attackers was given just that. Sam Swicegood was demoted from his job at Pizza Hut after he defended himself from being beaten up.
Swicegood described being sucker punched, after which defended himself by covering his face and swinging a small pole at them repeatedly. “I thought that I was about to die,” he said.
Pizza Hut cut his hours and his pay for violating their no weapons policy.
You can read a more detailed report here. You can watch two reports about this story in the link here, also at the link at the above.
By the way, if you watch the reports you can see that the weapon he had was a small aluminum tent pole.
