Yay, a brave (if not foolish) Domino's Pizza employee, Harish Karan, who had never seen a gun before, tackled a gunman Wednesday night at a Toronto location who was trying to steal cash from the register. And then three other employees joined in, holding him down, yanking off the burglar's cap, and even hitting him a couple of times. Police warn that fighting an armed robber is not usually the best thing to do.
According to CBC News:
While Karan and his colleagues seemed only proud of themselves, Toronto police say that no one should ever try to fight someone who is armed, unless it's a case of life and death.
"Let's face it, we're just talking about money in a store that's insured," Const. David Hopkinson said. "Had they not gotten hold of the gun and someone had been shot, we'd be talking about how completely senseless this was."
Police arrived at the Kingston Road pizza shop around 9:10 p.m. Wednesday, finding the assailant on the ground — held there by the group of employees.

There are plenty of productive ways to spend time while stuck indoors. While it’s undoubtedly fun to binge all 15 seasons of Supernatural or sink days of playtime into an Overwatch campaign, learning something new is definitely a more meaningful and long-term beneficial use of open hours. And if you’re going to invest time in […]
Yoga studios are closed nationwide. The irony is that between the anxieties of the outside world and those popping up inside your very own home with everyone trapped indoors, there’s probably never been a time where yoga’s calming zen was more vital and needed. Rather than just throwing in the yoga mat and subjecting family […]
The workers aren’t inside their physical business space anymore. So why should business technology still be under that roof either? In fact, more and more businesses have been making this migration for a while now, moving all their digital infrastructure to the world’s two largest cloud services platforms, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft’s Azure.
