    Local Pizza Shop Manager, 27, Murdered

    http://nrvnews.com/area/crime-watch/...-murdered.html

    A local pizza shop manager murdered. This is close to home in a place we frequent. Many of my friends knew the young man murdered and said he was a fine fellow. One of my co-worker's sons works there. What a shame for his family and 2 year old daughter.

    The story originally aired on the TV news with all of the employees outside crying and consoling each other...the next day they discovered one of the employees (that was there hugging and crying with everyone) was the one that did it!!!

    When the original story hit the news, so many people at work started talking about getting their carry permit, buying a gun, etc. Why do so many people have to wait until something happens close to home or to someone they know before they start thinking about personal safety and making defense plans? I had several people at work come to me within 2 days of the story and want me to take them shooting and help them choose a handgun. I, of course, am glad to assist them since I have a wide variety of types and calibers for them to try. One guy owns a lot of land and said if I would come out to his house and let him try some out and help him decide what to get he would throw some steaks on the grill and we'd have a nice dinner. Can't turn that down!!

    Because, statistically things like this generally happen "to other people." It's true, generally. So, folks can feel good about focusing on the other things in life. It can be discouraging to really think through the basic Q&A necessary to own, train with and carry a firearm that one might well end up using to terminate another life. Lots of folks just don't want to deal with such things. Forced to do so, however, a lot of people wake up to the simple fact that one need not be completely uninvolved in safety/security preparations for the loved ones in life. One doesn't need to be a victim by default. For some folks, that thought just takes a kick upside the head before they really get it. Sad, but true.

    One of the employees did the deed? You never know. Callous little bugger, from those reports.

    I bet a lot of these types of robberies are inside jobs, at least in part. Why not? easier to go with something familiar.

    A tragedy, and a testament to the heartlessness of the scumbags who do this... mourning with everyone else after the incident. man.

    ^^^^^^^I agree^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


    With both posts ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    People are inherently on the lazy side, and for the most part only do what they feel is necessary.
    So long as they FEEL safe, they will not put forth the effort to arm themselves.

    How many other people think we should do this or do that, but WE on the other hand, do not feel it is necessary?

    I typically select people who really know what they are doing, if they will be instructing a newbie, and have denied, with grace, the bubba types, who may get out of control, or do something dumb.

    When I hear about these things I always say a prayer for the family, for the loved ones and people who had worked with the victim, for the first responders and for the perpetrator and their family. There's too much of this violence happening on this planet.

    Don't wait to get your cc, you may become one of the folks stopping a future incident and thereby saving lives.

    Robbing the individual who was kind enough to give you a job in these tough times is pretty heartless. Now the state is going to pay this guy's room and board for the rest of his life.

    When it broke, I wondered how they arrested the guy so quickly.

    Turns out the piece of called someone and told him he had done it.

    http://www.roanoke.com/news/nrv/wb/264884

    According to a search warrant filed at the Montgomery County Circuit Court office, Lytton placed a call to a person approximately 15 minutes after the shooting. This person told police that, in the phone call, Lytton said he had just shot his boss.

    "shotgun".... ugh ! !

    What a shame ....

    One guy who was doing some work for us turned "white" one day, when they announced on the news they had arrested a long sought serial murderer.... at which pointhe said.... he had worked closely with him over some years at a Home Security company ... you got it, installing alarms.

    Now that, should wake someone up.

    Yes, all of us are capable of killing if we were driven to it. How long that drive is, and how we react at the end is what makes the difference. I doubt if any of us would be crying crocodile tears afterward.

    Eeek! I'm awake, I'm awake.

    I wonder if his former clients were any of his victims?
