America keeps doing it big. This story is so America, I’m positive a bald eagle just appeared out of thin air with a box of freedom in its talons. “I was hurt/killed/maimed?! Who can I sue? What large corporation can give me exorbitant amounts of money for being in the wrong place at the wrong time”
I didn’t realize Cracker Barrel was known for its defense of its patrons against armed gunmen. “Cracker Barrel: Come here if you’re being chased by gunmen” If I remember correctly the past few action movies have starred Cracker Barrel as a gun wielding hero so it makes sense they should be held accountable for a shooting death. Employees must have forgotten the SOP for “Gunman enters store wildly firing shots”.
“The lawsuit seeks more than $125,000 in damages. It says the restaurant failed to properly train employees to handle a volatile situation.” Cause when I think Cracker Barrel I think competent employees who can totally function at high levels and are very well adept at handling volatile situations. I think they definitely have a case if Cracker Barrel strictly hires ex-hostage negotiators. What? Cracker Barrel hires, who ever walks in the door with an application? Oh……Just kidding.
