Uber drivers may seem like an easy target for criminals, considering the idiotic policy of banning guns of any kind from Uber vehicles. But unfortunately for the would-be robbers out there, not all Uber drivers comply. And when a couple of thugs tried to rob an Uber driver, they realized too late that they had made a fatal mistake.
The Uber driver picked up a passenger early in the morning, just before 6:00am, and not long after, a Dodge Grand Caravan cut off the Uber driver on the Lehman Causeway in Miami. A man jumped out with two handguns, wanting to rob the Uber driver. But the driver had his own gun, which he quickly pulled out, and shot and killed the would-be robber. The robber’s accomplice then sped away in the minivan, leaving his friend behind, dead in the middle of the road.
Both the driver and the passenger were unharmed.
Still, this driver was smart in still carrying his legal firearm — doing so, even though Uber doesn’t allow it, clearly saved not only his life, but the life of his passenger. Uber should reward him, but if they don’t, his life is clearly more important than his job as an Uber driver.
In the meantime, maybe Uber can try to learn from this situation, and stop putting their drivers at risk with this moronic no-gun policy.
