    would it have been such a big deal for the employee to let Slater in being he was there just about closing time? Sounds to me the employee did not want to go above and beyond what he/she is asked to do…I would have let him through if given that authority.

    True….but that doesnt make the response of trying to run the employee over with his car justifiable.

    I’m surprised he is not being charged with a felony for trying to kill the person
