Lyft Fires Gun-Owning Driver Who Refused to Be Carjack Victim
The rideshare app Lyft would rather have its drivers be victims of violent crime than have them use lawful force to be survivors of it.

That much is clear based on the case of Cynthia Norman, a Cleveland woman who this past weekend successfully defended herself from would-be carjackers only to be fired from the San Francisco-based company for violating its policy on weapons.

Norman talked to local media about the harrowing incident that began around 1 a.m. on Sunday morning in the city’s Nottingham neighborhood after she picked up two passengers in their 20s.

“He opens the door, he gets in and he said, ‘Oh, I’m cold. Do you care if I sit up front,’” Norman said, noting that was a violation of Lyft’s covid protocol to have a rider sit up front with the driver. “I could see it’s about to go bad.”

“It starts to get pitch black. It’s dark,” Norman said. “I asked them, ‘Is this where you want to be?’ And in my mind it’s dark. It looked like a factory. I already knew this was going to be some bull.”

The suspects started to physically assault Norman.

“The guy in the passenger seat says, ‘B****, it’s a carjack.’ When he punched me in my face, the one that’s behind me, he grabbed me around my throat like this,” Norman said. “This one in the back is like, ‘Hey man. Why don’t you use the knife I gave you?’”

Fearing for her life, Norman worked to retrieve the handgun located in the center console of her vehicle.

“I just leaned on the armrest because my gun is in the armrest, but the idiots don’t know it’s in the armrest,” Norman said. “He walked back to the door again. I just opened up the thing, pulled my gun out and just aimed toward the door and started shooting.”

The perps fled the scene. But they didn’t leave empty handed. They managed to steal the one tool Lyft sanctions when drivers encounter trouble: her cellphone.

I always thought every Uber/Lyft driver should carry if possible, especially women. She could’ve been raped too, who knows. At least she’s safe but absolutely ridiculous to be fired protecting yourself. The world and the companies that run it are just shit. I read an article a couple days ago saying we’re 30 million years overdue for an ELE and I think it’s time. The human race needs a fresh start!
