So what happens when an Uber driver ignores such policy? He saves his life!
AVENTURA, FLA. (WSVN) – – Police are investigating after an Uber driver shot and killed a person who was attempting to rob him in Aventura, early Sunday.
According to Aventura Police, an Uber driver on the William Lehman Causeway was cut off by a gray Dodge Caravan, just after he had picked up a customer, just before 6 a.m. “He was cut off by this vehicle, and the subject jumped out of the car with two guns in his hands,” said Aventura Police Sgt. Chris Goranitis.
Investigators said the occupant of the Caravan then attempted to rob the Uber driver, who was behind the wheel of a black Toyota sedan. However, the driver, who has a weapons permit, also had a gun. “The Uber driver was able to fire off some rounds at the subject,” said Goranitis. That’s when, police said, a passenger inside the Caravan jumped into the front seat and took off.
The subject was pronounced dead at the scene.
I am sure that the uptight gun control ass-kissers at Uber will not allow the driver to be a part of their herd, but the he gets to have a Merry Christmas with his family instead of being an involuntary part of a funeral.
Although I understand why Uber might be a convenience for many, I refuse to use them because the company promotes that both driver and passenger be enclosed in a mobile gun free zone.
