DOUGLASVILLE, GA - Johnny Jarriel wasn't trying to wave people into a Douglas County convenience store Friday afternoon.
He was standing on the curb trying to shoo them away, to boycott it because of what the former employer did to him.
"I think the firing was unjustified; I believe it was unjustified," he told 11 Alive News.
Jarriel was an assistant manager at the Circle K on Highway 5 until he tried to defend himself last Saturday morning.
Store security video, provided by the Douglas County Sheriff Department, shows him working in a back office just after 9 am when a robber suddenly pepper sprays him from behind, pulls out a pistol, slams him to the floor and puts the gun to his head.
