“If there was to be a death, it was not the place of the employee at Pizza Hut. That is the place of law enforcement,” said Hairston.(BS, they would have blamed the police and started BLM riots if that had happened)
Hairston and Grace Sr acknowledged that their son was breaking the law by robbing the business, and said they definitely don’t condone what he did.Well isn't that nice of them.
“It was an act of desperation, but I do not believe that Michael would have hurt anyone,” said Hairston.Except maybe for this from a different article:
On Sunday, October 30th in Charlotte, North Carolina, three men walked into a Pizza Hut after closing hours to rob the business. One man, later identified as 28-year-old Michael Grace Jr, pulled a gun out on employees. One of the employees pulled his gun out and fired back, striking Grace in the head and killing him. Police did recover a gun after the incident from Grace. The other two suspects ran away and have not been caught yet.So he had a gun and was threatening people w/ it. But he wouldn't 'really' hurt anyone. They continue to excuse his behavior.
They said Grace Jr had fallen on hard times and resorted to crime to provide for his own child.So repeat criminal but it's the employee's fault:
"Why in the hell did this guy have a gun?” questioned Hairston about the employee who shot her son.She said her son was shot in the head, and she thinks the shooting may have even been personal, citing past conflicts Grace Jr had had with other employees at the restaurant.“This wasn’t a body shot. This was a head shot. My son was shot in the left side of his head just behind his ear. A headshot is personal,” said Hairston.
Maybe the employees knew her son was a violent thug and prepared (rightly) to protect themselves from him.
No accountability or responsibility. No wonder he thought he could take what he wanted from others.
