In what may have been a gang initiation, a teenager & his friends attacked the wrong pizza deliveryman. It was his last mistake, and our streets are now safer thanks to the fact that Christopher Miller was prepared to defend himself.
For anyone out there thinking of becoming a career thug assaulting pizza delivery guys or gals, let this be a lesson to you. If you attack a human being you are risking your OWN life as well as theirs. You are risking making children fatherless or motherless. You are risking leaving a wife without her beloved husband. Think twice before you embark on such a perilous path, as it may turn out to be a very short one.
A pizza deliveryman, who said Monday he has been held up twice before, fired shots that killed a teenager during a holdup because he feared he would die and not see his wife and 5-year-old daughter again.
“I believe everyone has the right to defend themselves if their lives are threatened,” Christopher Miller, 43, said in a statement issued through police.
To show what kind of friends you gain by joining a gang, you may find it interesting to note that this teenager's so-called "friends" apparently ate the stolen pizzas while they watched him bleed to death.
On a side note, it looks like Pizza Hut has not yet learned that it is wrong for them to ban self defense. How they can have a Corporate Policy that if followed would leave their drivers defenseless & easy targets is indefensible & reprehensible. I'm with Christopher Miller, I'd rather risk loosing my job than risk loosing my life, and I'm sure his wife & daughter are very glad he had made that decision:
Miller, who said he has delivered pizza for about 10 years, has resigned because Pizza Hut bans employees’ carrying weapons, corporate spokesman Chris Fuller said.
