This should send a message out to all the criminals that the people of this nation will not stand for this anymore.

The employee will probably be fired and sued by the dead man's relatives...

A brave action by what the criminal thought was another helpless victim. One less scum bag walking the street victimizing innocent people and living off of honest people's taxes. I fully support the employee's actions and I am sure he will not be prosecuted, as far as being sued let the scum bags family try the courts are tired of frivilous suits that are brought about by the stupid actions of others. And i'm sure the criminal is another of these good boys who would never do something like this. Yeah right!

At last justice is served. I am so sick and tired of these low lifes taking advantage of hard working people. Find a job and cease robbing people and places. There will be other robberies, but at least this good for nothing will be in Hell where he belongs. No relatives should even consider suing.

Just sitting here shaking my head...

This employee endangered the lives of his co-workers. This sort of Wild West attitude is what gets people killed.

This employee should be charged for murdering this man. The robber had no intent on killing anyone; he probably just needed some quick cash. This is nothing but a senseless shooting by a wantabe vigilante.

Have you lost your mind? That is the kind of thinking that makes these people think they can get away with this crap. If more criminals thought they may be shot themselves I bet there would be less of these robberies.
your bff also

Are you completely stupid or just dum? How do you know what this person intended to do or accomplish. I thank god and a smart boss that allowed this scum bag to leave this earth. Maybe next time it will be you because the only reason I can see for you to find fault is your a robber also.

This pizza employee open fired with a handgun. He put everyone's lives in danager. He could have just given the robber the money and it would have been over.

Instead he choose to be a vigilante, a Dirty Harry, and murder another human being. We know nothing about the robber - maybe he was stealing to feed his family, he could have been a victim himself of a poor ecomony.

We need to all take a minute and say a small prayer for the man who was murdered last night.

A life was taken regardless of the circumstances. I read all the posts. We were not there to know what actions we would had taken, or how we would had reacted at the situation, but I know one thing for sure, if someone comes to my business or my home with the intent to harm me, my family, or the customers I AM RESPONSIBLE for, I would had done the same. We do not have the right to take someone else's lives, but THEY DO NOT have the right to come and go as they please harrassing us hardworking people and bringing fear into our lives. So for all of the ignorant comments I read so far, I AM AGAINST VIOLENCE, I ALSO HATE SCUMBAGS, BUT I WILL PROTECT MY PEOPLE AT ALL COST. That employee did what he felt was his duty, he reacted quickly and saved everyone there. He should be acquitted on self-defense.

Mr. Robinson,
I would encourage you to display a large sign at your home and business stating that you despise firearms and any violence against would-be criminals. That should let all the thugs know what places are safe to enter and pillage at will. Please, buy some signs!
