Many of us who are permit holders in the Twin Cities area have been emailing and expressing to corporate that we will be taking our business elsewhere. We prefer not to do business with companies who support criminals over law-abiding employees. Some local radio stations have taken up his cause as well. While this is not strictly gun-related, it IS self-defense related. Please read the story below, and express your displeasure over SA's policies via their website. -Mark (FYI, I'm not the Mark in the story) http://kstp.com/article/stories/S437400.shtml?cat=206 KSTP.com - 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Posted at: 05/07/2008 08:56:38 PM Updated at: 05/08/2008 06:31:58 AM By: Nicole Muehlhausen, Web Producer Roseville gas station employee fired for attacking robber A local gas station employee is out of a job after he thought he was helping save someone’s life. Mark Beverly was one of two employees inside a Roseville Super America when a robber came into the store on March 26. Beverly was cleaning the bathroom when he heard the store clerk cry out. He came out to find a robber attacking the female employee. "I just jumped on his back and trying to hit his head and pushed him over the counter. I jumped back over and he was out of there," he said. Later that day, Beverly returned to work only to be punished for his actions. "I didn't think I was going to get fired for it," he told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. Super America issued a statement, saying that ‘employees are never to take action that could endanger themselves or others. It’s regrettable this happened.’ Beverly was given a robbery prevention packet, but he says he got it after the attempted robbery. "I didn't care about the money, I know Super America is insured. But I thought he was attacking her, that's why I jumped on him," he explained. The Roseville Police Department has not made any arrests regarding the robbery. Beverly has been denied employment with Super America.
