More abuse of our legal system

Some lousy lawyer brings us this case of abuse of the legal system.
A man who was beaten by employees of a store he was trying to rob is now suing. Police say Dana Buckman entered the AutoZone in Rochester, New York, last July, brandished a semi-automatic pistol and demanded cash. That's when employees Eli Crespo and Jerry Vega beat him with a pipe and held Buckman at bay with his own gun.

Now Buckman is suing the auto parts store and the two employees who beat him, claiming they committed assault and battery and intentionally inflicted emotional distress.
Of course they assaulted you, ya moron. You were threatening them with a gun. People suing others in this manner should be charged with attemped theft because that is precisely what he is trying to do. He is just using a lawyer instead of a gun this time.

Betcha AutoZone's lawyers tell employees to give robbers what they want from now on.

Worse, they may have such a policy and use it as a reason to fire the people who defended their property.

It has happened at other companies like McDonald's and Radio Shack.

Unfortunately we are about the only "developed" nation where this kind of crap even makes it past a court clerk.

Bizzy is probably right on the corporate reaction to it. In the long run it would be cheaper for AZ to give up to the robbers than defend the employees in court.
