The "right" thing in this case had been decided long before the robber walked through the door.
Autozone had discussed the issue of armed robberies and decided that they never wanted a shootout in the store to occur, and that employees were to
follow certain instructions to ensure maximum safety of people, even if that meant loss of Autozone property and/or revenue.
This gunslinger said "to hell with that"!
You're outside of your mind. Have you never seen a robber walk in, demand the money, have it promptly handed to him and then shoot the person who
handed it to him?
This happens more than you would think. Anytime someone pulls a firearm it should be treated with respect.
The employee did the proper thing, by not allowing the robber the opportunity to feel as if he could just blast.
The robber knew if I shoot, there will be return fire... This was not about protecting another mans money, but protecting another mans life.
Just because nobody got killed doesn't mean that nobody would have had the employee not grabbed his piece.
In other words, if he followed the autozone directive, somebody might have been dead.
In reality, what happened, happened... nobody was hurt. It's impossible to say if it happened another way nobody still would have been hurt.
