It's kinda funny the way you put the comparison of Domino's to Brink's. I am leaving Domino's after almost 8 years with one Franchisee to go to work for Brink's in two weeks. The job with Brink's has always interested me, but the main reason I made the decision is exactly because of what I know will happen to the driver in this story. He's already fired, whether or not the paperwork has been completed, or whether or not he knows it yet. Corporate will never allow a complete disregard for the no-weapons, no-way, no-how policy. In other words, Domino's (and Papa John's and Pizza Hut and all the rest) don't mind making a target of their employees and denying them the ability to defend themselves, period. I have really enjoyed being a driver, but I finally decided that if I was going to have a target on my back, it was going to be with a company who recognized, acknowledged and supported my need (and right) to defend myself with the same amount of force that I would be likely to face when things go south.

There's lots of us out here who refuse to die for a friggin' pizza company without making it a fair fight!
I'll take being alive and fired from Dominos over employed by Dominos and dead any day.

Tell me if that doesn't get you a little worked up.
I had some words to say to that reporter, and the station as a whole.
This article looks like it was written by a third grader. The short choppy sentences are not professional at all. Not only that but calling the BG a victim instead of a perpetrator??? Is this supposed to be a FOX news station?
