Here we go folk’s, Papa John’s has seen the light. Thanks in part to multiple posts on their Facebook page, they have decided to re-assign the employee to work inside the store instead of firing her. The PR fallout would have been massive. No comment as to whether or not she will be able to carry at work though.
PapaJohn’s goes on to say that counseling will be provided if she requests it. This is the best possible outcome. The “No Firearms” policy is not likely to change. At least Papa John’s has not lost my business.
Here is the encounter:
A Papa John’s pizza delivery driver in Georgia is worried she will lose her job after she shot an armed robber in self-defense Sunday night.
The employee was making a delivery in Decatur when she says she was ambushed by a man wielding a gun.
“She arrived at the location and a male began approaching the vehicle she thought was there to pick up the pizza,” DeKalb County Police Department Capt. Stephen Fore said,according to WSBTV. “When he got to her he produced a handgun and forced her out of the vehicle and on to the ground.”
But the woman, who has not been identified, had a gun in her pocket and was able to reach it while on the ground. From there, she was able to shoot her assailant, hitting him in the face.
The man, identified as 24-year-old Donquaz Stevenson, was arrested after being found in a nearby yard.
