    Autozone Fires An Air Force Veteran, Devin McClean, For Foiling Robbery

    Posted on December 4, 2012 by Bulldog1
    York County, Va.- Autozone fired one of its employee’s, Devin McClean, an Air Force Veteran, after he foils a robbery.
    Devin was working at the Autozone in York County, Va. When a criminal nicknamed “The Beard Bandit” walked into the store brandishing a weapon. This guy had already robbed the store once before, and was a suspect in 30 other robberies. The Air Force Veteran took action:
    “I waited for him to go up toward the front, I ran out of the restroom, ran out to my truck where I keep my own personal weapon, grabbed my weapon, came back into the store and confronted the guy,” says McClean.

    “When I yelled “freeze” and I said “Stop, drop the weapon,” he threw his hands up with his gun still in his hand he started running,” says McClean. “I felt like it was my responsibility to step in.”

    Devin’s manager is grateful.

    “He was like “Thank you Devin, you really saved my life,” says McClean.
    Two days later, he was fired.
    Courtesy WTKR.COM This is also the link to the original story.
    According to Autozone’s corporate office, they have a new gun policy, and that is why he was fired. So Autozone, if the manager had been killed had Devin not acted, how would you have felt then? Devin is responsible citizen who acted to save others, and to protect your store from being robbed, and this is how you show gratitude?
    McClean said “If I can save somebody’s life, I put that way above a store policy”. Devin, we agree, you did the right thing and we stand by you for what you did as a citizen with the right to bear arms.
    Here is the video:

    Some are already voicing their opinions on Autozone’s facebook page, if you would like to do the same here is the link. But remember we are Military and Veterans, keep it civil, no threats etc. But we feel this Veteran did the right thing and should not have lost his job for protecting others. I’m sure some will not agree he did the right thing, but we believe he did.

    UPDATE:
    From the Sheriff:
    The sheriff said he was disappointed to hear that McLean lost his job on account of stopping the robbery.
    “That’s certainly unfortunate,” he said. “They should be doing something to reward that young man instead of firing him.”
    Sheriff Diggs said AutoZone has also sent an unintended message to the community.
    “The company has now sent a message to every would-be robber out there – ‘Hey we’re open for business and unarmed. Come on in and take our money,’” he said.
    UPDATE Devin went on the record with Greta last night, here is the video:
    <UPDATE Sheriff Digg's to honor Devin for his heroic actions, he also speaks out against Autozone.

    While it sounds shitty, I also understand why Autozone would have a policy against employees bringing weapons to work, even if they leave them in their vehicles.

    That said, regardless of the policy, the Vet certainly did a very brave and commendable thing and should rightly be considered a hero, regardless of the fallout with his place of employment. Frankly, getting fired (and the accompanying press coverage) is probably going to benefit him more than had there been no adverse employment action. He'll probably land a better job and end up as a local celebrity because of what Autozone did.

    The story doesn't seem to state whether the Beard was arrested as a result of all this - it seems he got away.

    Also, from a legal standpoint, I would think that once Devin was able to get out of the building (= away from the danger) he wouldn't have the right to go back in and confront the Beard. Just sayin'.

    But if it did indeed go down the way they stated then I'm all in support of him, legal or not.

    Like you said, legal or not, he is a hero.

    I can only speak for my great state of NH but out here, if he escaped it would not be legal for him to go back in UNLESS he was protecting the welfare of a woman, a child, or an elderly person. So apparently, the middle aged male manager would just me SOL.

    Well done to that man, heroic actions indeed, but in an age where you have to wear a hard hat and steel toe cap boots to take a shit at work i'm not suprised he was fired. If i were the manager i would have walked out in protest of his contract termination if i truly believed he had saved my life. I'm not familiar with american gun laws, but i thought you have to have a special license to have a gun on you or in your vehicle, which means you're a diligent and responsible gun owner and if so shouldn't you be allowed to use them to stop a robbery before the police have time to respond? or are they just for display?

    Gun free zones provide a safer environment for a criminal to do their business within.

    Have you noticed that most if not all of the shootings are in places where guns are ALREADY banned?

    I never hear of a shooting at an NRA meeting, and pistol competition, a skeet shoot....

    Nothing dummer than to put a "no gun allowed" sticker on the door of your business, yet some do....

    Although licenses ARE required, unfortunately they don't test for mental stability - not everyone that has a license is responsible or diligent. But then, that just evens the playing field with the bad guys.

    I noticed that last night while watching SNF... that Bob Costas didn't decide to go on a diatribe where he called for the banning of alcohol after an NFL player killed in DUI incident... while the week before he joined the gun banning parade.
    Hmmm... let's compare statistics: looks like exactly 2.5 to 1 with alcohol being the hands down winner.
    And, no, this isn't a statement against alcohol... it is a statement of Costas bent logic.

  14. i think the bottom line in this is "common sense"....or in the case of the company, lack of. the guy didn't bring the gun into work (as in carrying it on his person ,or in his locker) and only went out to get it as someone's life was in danger. the company( middle/upper management are suffering from that rampant disease....assholeism!

    The wussification of the american male....What would John Wayne do?

    Look at the "Hollywood" stars now, they are metrosexual wimps for the most part.

    Compare that to the "Hollywood" stars during the 40s and 50s. Many were vets, fought in WWII and Korea etc.

    Now they manscape and get manicures....

    Don't know if these two quotes are true...a sheriff was asked by a reporter:

    Why do you carry a .45? Answer: Because they don't make a .46.

    Are you specting trouble? Answer: If I was expecting trouble, I would have brought a shotgun.

    In contrast to the ideals, opinions and feelings of today's "Hollywonk" the real actors of yester-year loved the United States.
    They had both class and integrity. With the advent of World War many of our actors went to fight rather than stand and rant against this country we all love.
    They gave up their wealth, position and fame to become service men & women, many as simple "enlisted men".
    This page lists but a few, but from this group of only 18 men came over 70 medals in honor of their valor, spanning from Bronze Stars, Silver Stars, Distinguish Service Cross', Purple Hearts and one Congressional Medal of Honor.

    So remember; while the "Entertainers of 2003" have been in all of the news media lately I would like to remind the people of what the entertainers of 1943 were doing, (60 years ago).

    Most of these brave men have since passed on.

    Real Hollywood Heros

    Alec Guinness (Star Wars) operated a British Royal Navy landing craft on D-Day.

    [​IMG] David Niven was a Sandhurst graduate and Lt. Colonel of the British Commandos in Normandy.
    [​IMG] James Stewart entered the Army Air Force as a private and worked his way to the rank of Colonel.
    During World War II, Stewart served as a bomber pilot, his service record crediting him with leading more than 20 missions over Germany, and taking part in hundreds of air strikes during his tour of duty.
    Stewart earned the Air Medal, the Distinguished Flying Cross, France's Croix de Guerre, and 7 Battle Stars during World War II.
    In peace time, Stewart continued to be an active member of the Air Force as a reservist, reaching the rank of Brigadier General before retiring in the late 1950s.

    Clark Gable (Mega-Movie Star when war broke out) Although he was beyond the draft age at the time the U.S. entered WW II,
    Clark Gable enlisted as a private in the AAF on Aug. 12, 1942 at Los Angeles.
    He attended the Officers' CandidateSchool at Miami Beach, Fla. and graduated as a second lieutenant on Oct. 28, 1942.
    He then attended aerial gunnery school and in Feb. 1943 he was assigned to the 351st Bomb Group at Polebrook where flew operational missions over Europe in B-17s.
    Capt. Gable returned to the U.S. in Oct. 1943 and was relieved from active duty as a major on Jun. 12, 1944 at his own request, since he was over-age for combat.

    Charlton Heston was an Army Air Corps Sergeant in Kodiak.
    [​IMG] Ernest Borgnine was a U. S. Navy Gunners Mate 1935-1945.

    [​IMG] George C. Scott was a decorated U. S. Marine.
    [​IMG] Eddie Albert (Green Acres TV) was awarded a Bronze Star for his heroic action as a U. S. Naval officer aiding Marines at the horrific battle on the island of Tarawa in the Pacific Nov. 1943.
    [​IMG] Brian Keith served as a U.S. Marine rear gunner in several actions against the Japanese on Rabal in the Pacific.
    [​IMG] Lee Marvin was a U.S. Marine on Saipan during the Marianas campaign when he was wounded earning the Purple Heart.
    [​IMG] John Russell In 1942, he enlisted in the Marine Corps where he received a battlefield commission and was wounded and highly decorated for valor at Guadalcanal.
    [​IMG] Robert Ryan was a U. S. Marine who served with the O. S. S. in Yugoslavia.
    [​IMG] Tyrone Power (an established movie star when Pearl Harbor was bombed) joined the U.S. Marines, was a pilot flying supplies into, and wounded Marines out of, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
    [​IMG] Audie Murphy A little 5'5" tall 110 pound guy from Texas who played cowboy parts?
    Most Decorated serviceman of WWII and earned: Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, 2 Silver Star Medals, Legion of Merit, 2 Bronze Star Medals with "V", 2 Purple Hearts, U.S. Army Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, 2 Distinguished Unit Emblems, American Campaign Medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with One Silver Star, Four Bronze Service Stars (representing nine campaigns) and one Bronze Arrowhead (representing assault landing at Sicily and Southern France) World War II Victory Medal Army of Occupation Medal with Germany Clasp, Armed Forces Reserve Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, Marksman Badge with Rifle Bar, Expert Badge with Bayonet Bar, French Fourragere in Colors of the Croix de Guerre, French Legion of Honor, Grade of Chevalier, French Croix de Guerre With Silver Star, French Croix de Guerre with Palm, Medal of Liberated France, Belgian Croix de Guerre 1940 Palm.
    So how do you feel the real heroes of the silver screen acted when compared to the hollywonks today who spray out anti-American drivel as they bite the hand that feeds them? Can you imagine these stars of yester-year saying they hate our flag, making anti-war speeches, marching in anti-American parades and saying they hate our president?
    I thought not, neither did

Remember, Eisenhower declared Berlin to be merely a "prestige objective" and cancelled plans to airdrop the 82nd Airborne onto Tempelhof Airfield, leaving the taking of Berlin to our Soviet allies. As far as Knight's "bronze stars", they actually were "battle stars" awarded for campaign participation and added to the European-African-Middle Eastern Theater Medal (EAM). My father, who served with Third Army as a Machine Gunner T/5, had five battle stars for his EAM medal. This is not taking anything away from the late Mr. Knight. But battle stars did not signify any particular individual act of bravery or conspicuous gallantry under fire, those acts were rewarded by medals such as the Soldier's Medal, the Bronze Star (first awarded in 1944) or the Silver Star and, of course, higher awards, such as the Distinguished Service Medal, Distinguished Service Cross and Medal of Honor. Of the various obits, including those in the entertainment business (of which I work) I checked, I find no mention of any particular awards for gallantry, although it is is possible he did earn some. As an aside, another guest star, the late Neville Brand, was in fact the fifth most decorated soldier in the Army during the war. He was the sergeant who cared more for his pigeons than Saunder's squad in one episode." information provided by Dana Eugene Creasy

    Kind of what happens in a heavily segregated society where the females and males aren't allowed to co-exist together freely without prohibitions. Which is kind of why, despite the threat of beheadment/hanging/stoning, or life imprisonment, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries are beyond rampant with homosexuality.
