Dark skinned suspect? Hmmm.......Turkish? Middle Eastern? Italian maybe? Too much time at the tanning salon? Well I'm sure from the description Columbo will crack the case wide open soon enough.

Man, who knew robbing a dollar general could be so easy? It appears as though anyone can get away with it.

I can only guess that dollar general stores do not have an emergency to push in case they are getting robbed.

Where in this story does it

Where in this story does it say the perp had dark skin? Better be careful about making assumptions as to the ethnicity of suspects or the moderators of this board will pull your comment and block you from the board.

To me a criminal is a criminal no matter what color / tone their skin is. When you are getting shot it doesn't matter what color or race the shooter is. ALL criminals should be eliminated when they are in the act of committing a violent crime.....and using a handgun IS a violent crime.

IAMRIGHTYOUAREWRONG...sometimes the articles change and get updated with new information or old information get deleted though all comments remain attached. maybe the article said the perp was "Dark-Skinned" before it was updated and that info removed. Just a thought.

Left with the cash and laundry detergent .... I suppose that would make it a clean get away?
