i hope the owners don't fire the manager. i've worked a few fast food jobs, and they all said if we resisted a would be robber in any way, we would be fired.

I've never heard of White's Fast Food, it may be a Mom and Pop shop.

After working for a few national chains and a few Mom and Pop shops, I can tell you their attitude towards just about everything is different.

Sounds like a good shoot to me.

The question I want answered though is, what kind of gun did the manager use?

Was it a High-Point? :D

Hackenberg retrieved his handgun from a holster he was wearing, pointed it at Johnson and repeatedly told the him to drop his gun...

This is the second incident I've noticed this evening in which the good guy repeatedly warned the criminal. I wonder how many good guys have died because they wasted time warning criminals.
