    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

    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.
