RESOLUTION NO. [R-2012-01170]

 

Honoring Edward Turner for his heroism on December 9, 2012.

 

WHEREAS, on Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 6:20 p.m. three men entered Church’s Chicken at 55th and Prospect and one of them pulled a revolver on the employees; and

 

WHEREAS, Edward Turner, the manager of Church’s Chicken, appeared to comply with a demand to turn over money and when the robber reached farther over the counter, he grabbed the handgun; and

 

WHEREAS, after Edward Turner grabbed the fully loaded handgun from the would be robber all three men fled from the restaurant; and

 

WHEREAS, Edward Turner took the opportunity to change the situation by grabbing the 38 caliber pistol from the gunman at a moment in time; and

 

WHEREAS, Edward Turner does not see himself as a hero but without his quick thinking and reflexes, somebody in the restaurant could have been shot or even killed; and

 

WHEREAS, Edward Turner believes in mercy and thanks Christ Jesus for his still being here. Believing in change, he hopes the same biblical principals in him will be passed onto the would be robbers; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby honor Edward Turner for his heroism on December 9, 2012; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to Edward Turner with the appreciation of the Mayor and Council for taking action and keeping the employees and customers of Church’s Chicken safe from would be robbers.
