  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

Off-duty officer kills robber at Denny's
By Kim Bell
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
04/25/2008

Denny's
Denny's Restaurant on Hampton Avenue
(Adam Wisneski/P-D)
[/size]UPDATED, 12:15 p.m.

A police officer working security at a Denny's restaurant in St. Louis shot and killed a would-be robber early today, police say.

The dead man has been identified as Brett D. Holloway, 37, of Waynesville, Mo.

Holloway was on parole after serving 12 years in Missouri prison for several robbery convictions out of St. Louis and St. Louis County.

About 1:20 a.m., Holloway walked into the Denny's at 1515 Hampton Avenue and pulled a stocking mask over his face, police say. He pointed a dark-colored handgun at the officer, who was sitting at the counter. The officer was wearing his police uniform, working what's called "secondary" -- hired by the restaurant to act as security.

Detectives aren't sure if Holloway spotted the officer when he first walked into the restaurant. 

The unidentified officer fired several shots, police say. Holloway apparently did not fire his weapon.

After he was shot, Holloway fell behind the counter, still holding his gun, police say. The officer yelled at him to drop the gun, then fired more shots.

Holloway was taken to a hospital, where he died just after 2 a.m. He had been shot several times.

About three or four employees were inside the Denny's at the time. No customers were there. No one else was injured.

As is protocol in police-involved shootings, the officer is on leave while homicide detectives with the St. Louis Police Department investigate the incident to determine if it was a justified shooting.

The officer has been on the St. Louis police force for more than two years.

Holloway's nickname is Mellon Head, according to prison records. He has nine convictions in Missouri -- including for armed robberies he committed in 1993 in St. Louis city and St. Louis County and for possessing a weapon in 1995 at the Farmington Correctional Center. He was sentenced to overlapping terms totalling 25 years in prison. He went to prison in 1994 and was paroled about 12 years later, in September 2006. Brian Hauswirth, a spokesman for the Missouri Department of Corrections, said Holloway was in good standing with his parole officer in Rolla, Mo., going in person as recently as April 16. Next Friday, Holloway was due in Pulaski County court for a hearing on his wife's request for an order of protection. Pulaski County Circuit Clerk Rachelle Beasley said Holloway's wife, Amy Holloway, came to the courhouse on March 25 and asked for an order of protection against her husband. She wrote in her petition that she had "witnessed explosive anger from my husband." Amy Holloway wrote that Brett Holloway became enraged that day, claiming he had all legal rights to their son.

That's true but he did have a baby that is less than a year old that will never know his father.  Bad as his father was, he was still his father and he didn't have anything to do with how his dad lived.  Doesn't it make you wonder why he would point a gun at an officer and not pull the trigger.  Maybe he had other plans and wanted the officer to make them come to realization.

many people say the apple doesnt fall far from the tree.  I feel bad for any child without a  parrent, but enviromental factors mold a child's future too.  If you play with fire, you will eventually get burned.  He used the gun as a tool.  Not to kill, but to add leverage to his demands..  not that it makes it any less of a crime, he may not have intended to kill anyone, but when I feel like someone is threatening my life....Ill pull the trigger first too.

Don't get me wrong, I think the officer definitely did the right thing.  What I think though is that Mr. Holloway may have had a "death wish."  Why else wouldn't he have shot back when he got shot. I don't know him but I think If I was going to rob someplace with a gun and someone shot at me I would shoot back.
When I was young, I wanted to be older.  This is not what I expected!

Either that or he was one of those people that can't live on the outside. Probably knew that this place was filled with cops and just wanted to go back to prison where he felt secure.
Unfortunately he was also an idiot. If he was a melon head, it must have been a mush melon

What I don't understand is the fact that he was working on the base as a shift leader in a mess hall.  Don't they do background checks on the people they hire?? What if he got ticked off at some of his coworkers and decided to go on a rampage!  Just doesn't make sense to me.

I asked someone about that, they told me that they hire a lot of people on parole.  Their parole officers help them get the job.  That's what I heard, could be wrong.

I would think that a background check which shows a history of violence, theft, or drug dealing would be enough to disqualify a person from being employed on the base.
