So now we are not allowed to defend ourselves in fear of loosing our jobs?
Check it out:
Don Pitaniello, a 58 year-old Vietnam veteran from Rutland, was closing up shop at Mac’s Convenience Store on Sunday when a man wearing a hoodie and a bandana over his face stormed in wielding a 5-inch knife, the Rutland Herald reports.
“He walked up to the counter, laid the knife on it and said ‘Empty the register,’” Pitaniello told the paper.
But Pitaniello had something ready for the man – a .380-caliber handgun hidden behind his back.
The man picked the knife up and waved it in Pitaniello’s face.
Pitaniello replied with words and a pointed gun.
“I told him he better get the (expletive) out of there,” he said.
The would-be robber listened and left.
Though Pitaniello may have saved his own life, he may have lost his job. The Rutland Herald reported that Pitaniello was suspended on Monday.
