A while back I posted on the story of pizza shop owner John Hayes, who shot and killed an armed robber.
Recently a follow-up story ran which includes:
The pizza shop owner defended his life and his cash, but business has since suffered. It’s down 80 percent.
“We’ve slowed down. We lost a lot of our core customers in the neighborhood,” Hayes said.
I noted at the time that a neighborhood resident noted that it was the first time that “something of this nature” had happened in the area, and that he must have meant someone defending themselves against armed robbery, because that very pizza shop had been successfully robbed at least three times in the past two years.
Pizza shop gets robbed three times in two years? No problem.
Pizza shop owner shoots robber on the fourth time? To scary to eat there.
