Her son and two others were robbing a Pizza Hut. It didn’t go as he planned. Parents of NC Pizza Hut robbery suspect question why worker fatally shot their son | WNCN
She doesn’t think self-defense is a good idea. We shouldn’t defend ourselves from violent criminals; we should wait on the government in the form of law enforcement. Of course by the time the cops get there, the violence would have already been committed.
She has other “issues.” He got shot in the head. Shouldn’t he have been shot in the chest instead? A head shot is personal. Or something.
What her position boils down to, is that only the criminals should be armed.
“Why in the hell did this guy have a gun?” questioned Hairston about the employee who shot her son.
How about to protect himself in the event of a robbery? But I will go with delivering pizzas is a dangerous job. Pizza delivery guys get robbed with depressing frequency, and too many of them end up shot.
And on that score, Pizza Hut has released some bland statement about the security of their employees, but I would be willing to bet that they fire the employee. Not because he legally defended himself, but because the corporate big-wigs, who will never be robbed delivering a pizza, don’t want their employees armed.
Then there are the excuses.
They said Grace Jr. had fallen on hard times and resorted to crime to provide for his own child. They also said their son used to work at the same Pizza Hut restaurant where the robbery happened. They maintain he never would have physically hurt anyone during the robbery.
I’m sure he was just the little angel. I mean, he had a good reason for being a criminal. Or something.
I get that she is in pain, but in the end this woman will have to deal with the fact that her son was a violent criminal, and he died while committing a crime. You may say that is harsh, and it is. Reality is cold-hearted bitch.
