[RAW VIDEO] Armed Restaurant Manager Subdues and Removes Would-Be Thief WITHOUT Drawing His Gun
A lot of anti gun and anti concealed carry advocates like to paint carry permit holders as people who can’t wait to draw their defensive weapon at the first chance. That simply couldn’t be further from the truth. Most defensive firearm carriers will go out of their way to avoid a confrontation involving their firearm.
In this case, the manager of a restaurant in the Buckhead area of Atlanta caught a would-be thief red handed as he tried to steal money from the employee tip jar. The manager, who was armed according to a post on GeorgiaPacking.org, did not draw his weapon to remove the suspect from his establishment, but simply went with a little, good, ol fashioned man handling.
As the video shows the manager confronted the suspect, physically stopped the theft, jumped the counter and then physically removed the suspect from the store. During the entire incident, the manager felt no need to unholster his concealed sidearm.
According to the GeorgiaPacking.org post by the manager,
I grabbed his wrist and bent his hand back until he surrendered the stolen money. I had a cook and a female cashier working with me at the time. I didn’t feel comfortable letting him have freedom of movement, so I jumped the counter to escort him out. By escort, I mean forcibly remove by any means necessary… I told him that if I ever saw him again, it would end very badly for him.
Bravo to the manager for both refusing to be a victim and for exercising restraint in the use of his firearm.
