    This one is my favorite. Good on the new employer.

    Store Clerk Fired for Using Gun to Defend Store
    Portsmouth, New Hampshire: On December 7, 2005, Cumberland Farms store clerk Bruce Soiett pursued an armed robber out of the building. Soiett yelled for the thief to stop, and the robber turned toward Soiett with a gun. Soiett fired two rounds at the robber. No one was hurt in the exchange, and police never caught the thief. Cumberland Farms fired Soiett over the incident, but he quickly found work at the Exit 3 Travel Stop. “We feel more comfortable having people who can stand up for themselves,” his new employer stated.

    Great article! I'll be passing that along to a few folks I know.

    A prudent one foresees the evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished. - Proverbs 22:3
