WEAPONS OF CHOICE Pizza man saved by gun, but fired for packin' heat Prosecutors call it 'clear case of self-defense,' yet national chain prohibits carrying firearms

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/ar...TICLE_ID=38726

Posted: June 1, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern

2004 WorldNetDaily.com

A pizza deliveryman won't face charges for fatally shooting a would-be robber several times when he was approached in a high-crime area, but his employer, Pizza Hut, has fired him for violating a company policy against carrying firearms.

Ronald B. Honeycutt, 38, who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, says he's been delivering pizzas for 20 years and has always packed heat on the job.

According to a report in the Indianapolis Star, prosecutors announced Friday the Carmel, Ind., man will not face criminal charges.

"It's a clear case of self-defense," Deputy Prosecutor Barb Crawford said. "He did what the law allows him to do to protect himself."

Jerome Brown-Dancler approached Honeycutt at around 11 p.m. on May 17 just after he had made a pizza delivery in Indianapolis. According to the report, Brown-Dancler pointed a 9 mm handgun at the Pizza Hut employee as he was entering his van.

Brown-Dancler's gun carried a loaded 14-round clip but had no bullet in the chamber, Crawford told the Star. When confronted, Honeycutt pulled his own 9 mm from the back of his pants and fired until it was empty. He says he fired 15 times in about eight seconds. An autopsy revealed Brown-Dancler was hit at least 10 times.

According to the report, Honeycutt insists Brown-Dancler didn't fall until after the last shot was fired.

"The guy kept standing. He knew he was injured when he fell," Honeycutt told the paper. "His concern was he made an error, and the only thing he could say when I was grabbing his gun off the ground was, 'I just wanted pizza.'"

After the encounter, Honeycutt took Brown-Dancler's gun, fearing it might be stolen if it was left with the body. He got in his van, drove to the Pizza Hut restaurant where he worked and told his manager to call police, Crawford said.

"This was late at night. This was a high-crime area," Crawford is quoted as saying. "He left because he wasn't sure whether or not Brown-Dancler had any friends with him. As it turns out, he did indeed have friends with him. They left when they heard shots fired."

Honeycutt says he plans to find another job delivering pizzas.

"Other criminals better think twice, because I'm going back out there," he said, "and I know I'm not alone in the way I think about this."

Some Pizza Hut customers have complained to the company after it fired Honeycutt.

"I hope those of you in the media will realize the incredible unfairness of a huge company telling its employees in essence they must agree to die for the company rather than use legal reasonable means to defend themselves," Rick Whitham, an Indianapolis attorney, told WND. He says he saw Pizza Hut's action as "clear discrimination against those who choose to lawfully exercise a legal, heavily regulated right."

Whitham wrote to the company: "I don't spend my money with businesses that openly discriminate against people such as myself who understand that the police have no affirmative duty to protect any particular citizen and that no company is worth dying for particularly yours."

Damn strait! Who knows what that guy would have done to him! I used to clean banks in bad neighborhoods late at night (private cleaning company) and if I had the money for one, I DEFINATELY would have tucked a .45 in my pants.

Screw pizza hut, panzies! They just don't want a bad PR rap.

Good for him man, one less dirtbag to worry about.

I'm sure this is a frustrating time for Pizza-Hut and legislators across america. Suddenly everyone is second-guessing WHY we have laws. Are they for our protection or against it. Here's a clear case of one of those 'loopholes' they never thought of.

I'm not saying screw laws and the government. I don't have a problem with authority, just the abuse of it.

Somewhere right now there is a crappy lawmaker scratching his head saying, "Crap, well that one isn't gonna work is it." No ***** Sherlock!!!!

Lawmakers should walk the streets they are trying to protect the public from. Maybe then they'll get a better idea of what their community is up against. Too bad their shielded by their gated-communities staring at the world through the TV and take their daily commute 'away from high-crime areas' to get to work. Ignoring the problem is the farthest thing from the best solution. And trying to make a quick-fix usually only causes more.

I'm glad we have one more pizza delivery man alive today and one more scumbag in the grave. The world is a better place because he broke a law that wasn't well thought out.

Criminals fear no gun laws. They don't follow them. Never have, never will.

Criminals fear an armed "victim". Always have, always will.

He and pizza-hut are only protecting both of their a$$es.

He did what he could and thought only of protecting himself,
they just got out of a possible lawsuit from who knows where.

In todays sue happy society protecing your self or business is just hoping you won't get sued while doing so.

I wonder what to would take to get a permit to carry my automag here in VA?

A Joke.

Why did the criminal get shot by the Pizza Man and not the Cop?


Cause he didn't want a piece of bacon!

You answered your own question. It's in the rear window and in plain sight. No permit needed.

You can't carry a rifle in your britches anyway.

Good for Pizza Man. He had a permit, that should be all that matters. It doesn't seem like too long ago that I remember reading about a paraplegic cabbie in NY that was robbed at gun point and decided to run down that scumbag with his cab. If I remember correctly, the robber sued for half a million for damages. Todays world is run by the crooks in the courthouses that are willing to sue for anything. Oh darn, I just spilled my coffee. I better go sue Jaun Valdez. Talk to my lawyer....
