Re: AUTOZONE FIRES EMPLOYEE FOR BEING A HERO

I don't think they should let him go. But I also think his life is worth more than $2K. I know that Home Depot will fire an employee if they have a gun on the premises. With all the "workplace violence", do you really want a co-worker with a gun?

When my daughter was living in Houston, her hotel was robbed. She gave them all the cash in the drawer (all $30) and then jumped the counter to chase down the robber. They got in a car & left. Now, what do you think the cops, hotel owner, her sister and her Dad & I said to her? She was so pissed that she was robbed. We were all so happy she wasn't hurt. Businesses have insurance that will cover the $$ lost in a robbery.

In descending order of importance, the only motives for how one deals with an armed bad guy should be 1) survival of self and other innocents present, and 2) the principle of thwarting evil. One should never, ever, ever have to worry about "Will I get fired for what I do about this?" Besides, it's hard to predict how one will react to that situation. I hope I never find out.

It's often said "Just give 'em what they want because you can't buy back your life." I understand the logic but feel like retorting, "but you can't sell the PTSD you get afterward!"

Speaking of PTSD (which I've experienced from other causes) I generally wouldn't wish it on anyone...except a***holes like whoever fired the AutoZone hero.

Does anyone know if AutoZone stores are corporate or franchise-owned? I have mixed feelings about boycotting because it may amount to cutting one's nose off to spite one's face, i.e., hurting the employees instead of the fat cats.

I work at Home Depot and I'm OK with their gun policy. It's too unpredictable what will happen if a coworker had a gun. Never mind that a disgruntled employee could bean someone with a sledgehammer or ax. I wouldn't want them to fire someone who used his or her forbidden firearm to neutralize what any person with two brain cells to rub together would recognize as a clear and present danger to the lives of self and others. The trouble with zero tolerance is that it's black-and-white while the real world presents a greyscale continuum of circumstances.

The way I see it is gun laws and no gun policies don't apply to the whack job that wants to kill a dozen people at work then turn the gun on himself.
