call the authorities
Given all the noise about Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, is this indicative of anything?
When Ryan Young, a butcher at the Del Rey Oaks Safeway, stopped a customer from hitting his pregnant girlfriend in the store last month, he won praise from the police department.
But Safeway slapped Young with a suspension — without pay — while the company investigates the altercation.
Safeway spokeswoman Wendy Gutshall said in a statement. “We have store security video of the incident and have been engaged in a careful and thoughtful forensic review of what transpired. …There are two sides to every story, and we would ask that judgment be reserved,… We will be relying on the video and other relevant evidence as well as statements of eyewitnesses and other information to make a final decision.”"
…”Now it’s been almost a month,” [Del Rey Oaks Police Chief Ron] Langford said. “We conducted an investigation, we filed the case with the district attorney’s office. What are they investigating?”
