Hero gets the shaft

When pharmacist Jeremy Hoven was held at gunpoint by two intruders at a Michigan Walgreens, he fired his own gun in self defense. The robbers ran away and the store was saved. While co-workers and his community celebrated Hoven as a hero, Walgreens fired him for allegedly breaking their "non escalation policy." He is currently suing the chain, claiming he had the right to defend himself.
