Bad guy: convicted of armed robbery and illegal firearm possession, sentenced to "five years" two years ago, already out of prison and committing armed robbery again.
I like some of the comments on the Kroger: Do Not Fire Employee for Shooting Robber! facebook page
Ted Fleischaker He should be fired immediately. I won't be shopping there if he is allowed to carry a gun at work and I am for REPEAL OF THE 2nd AMENDMENT and the immediate banning of ALL guns as well!
Kate Shepherd This is my Kroger and I have to say i'm re-evaluating that. I know the man shot was allegedly attempting to rob the store, but it makes me uncomfortable to know employees may have guns...and not hesitate to use them. I'm waiting to hear what the company has to say, but am not going to be shopping there until they give some answers about what's allowed. I don't care that it's the holiday season...seems Kroger has been slow to respond. They need to work on that or risk losing business.
Mary Dewhurst He didn't just shoot just once folks. SHAME on you people for rejoicing because a young man is dead! He has a grieving family. If the so called "hero" had only fired once then yes, he would be a hero BUT he shot FOUR TIMES! That's just another ANGRY person who had a chance to take a life and did so!Angry people don't need to be carrying guns EVER! Yeah, I've said it before & I'll say it again we need tighter restrictions on guns! Before anyone says anything about "responsible" gun ownership remember one thing. KROGERS has a strict NO GUN policy so you cannot say this hero is a responsible gun owner because responsible gun owners do not take guns where they are PROHIBITED!
