An employee of General Motors took quick action this past Wednesday, when he witnessed an 52-year-old woman being brutally stabbed on the company property.
Didarul Sarder, a valet service supervisor, used his gun to detain the attacker until police and an ambulance arrived. Sarder has a concealed pistol license, so it’s legal for him to be carrying his gun.
While interviewed by WJBK-TV, he described feeling the need to act and do something about the horrific crime that was happening:
“The lady kept saying, ‘I’m dying, someone help,’ and it was just a natural reaction. I just see this lady getting stabbed. I only had, like, half a second to think and I unholstered my firearm and pointed it at her to drop the knife.”
Normally this is a great story of one citizen standing up for another, but the reaction of a GM employee leads this story down a path of sadness rather than true justice.
Sarder was ordered to be removed from the site and company property.
“He said, ‘You shouldn’t have had a firearm here. After this is done he needs to be escorted off the property. He’s not welcome back here.’ I was really bummed out. I got a little emotional.
I would do it all over again. If I could save this woman’s life over a job, I can get another job.”
She’s still recovering from her wounds, and Sarder hopes he acted quickly enough to save her life.
Someone exercising his right to carry just saved somebody’s life and might not have been able to save in another situation. I guess lives aren’t as important to GM as it is pushing an anti-gun agenda. It’s good to know where their priorities are.
