A Lance Distribution delivery man was robbed at gunpoint while trying to deliver potato chips Monday afternoon, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

At 4 p.m., the worker was delivering the chips to the ET Food Mart at 503 East Boundary when he was approached by two men asking if he needed help.

When he said no, one of the men raised up his shirt to show a pistol in his waistband.

He reached into the delivery man’s pants pocket and took out $52, the report said.

Robbing a delivery man

is a sorry way of making a living. This man is on a job, trying to earn money the honest way and punks come along and rob him. I hope they catch them, and soon. The chain gang needs to be re-established for criminals like these and worse - put them on the road - make them dig ditches - don't give them the 'comforts of home' with meals served and clothing provided - let them work for it. Would pay the county for some of the cost of taking care of these sorry excuses for human beings.

Come on TW

where's your sense of compassion? You know that these guy's are entitled to take what they want. Why not, they've never had to work for anything, how can we expect them to start now. Worst of all, think about what would happen if they actually were forced to work for a living, and take care of their babies and baby-mama's. Can you just imagine if the next generation actually saw their dad's at home and working and providing for their families. Who would we take care of once the next generation weened itself off the government nipple? Please remember, we must take care of these folks, since they can't take care of themselves.

"At 4 p.m., the worker was delivering the chips to the ET Food Mart at 503 East Boundary" Hmmm.....well there's your problem right there!

12 p.m. to 12 a.m. is the worst time to be on East Boundary.
BTW isn't there a commercial about "I've got Lance in my pants"?
Apparently Lance crackers are no match for a pistol.

Anyway, keep your chin up deliveryman! Some day these two thugs will be dead or in prison while you soldier on working hard and contributing to society. I'm glad you are okay.

Low Down Dirty Shame

Maybe a good solution is to build a massive penitentiary, a Mega prison in Maricopa County and let sheriff Joe Arpaio be in charge of all of them. Bring back the chain gang.....when you do the crime you do the time, hard labor!

Oh....(and the article doesn't mention this) but folks in or around the ET Food Mart at the time, "didn't see nuttin'", according to police.

The problem is not only the thugs with the guns. It's the whole corrupt, enabling, morally enfeebled culture in which these reptiles slither and hide. It's a parallel society which protects them, affirms them and emboldens them. Thus, they do not consider robbing a deliveryman in broad daylight to be a risky undertaking.

After all, who's going to rat them out or identify them to police?

Nobody.

Nope, not gonna happen. We're at a time in history where punishment is not an option. The system actually feels sorry for them, blames themselves, and therefore wants to "help" them by offering some kind of lame program or assistance at the expense of you and me. My advice: You all better tighten up, do some damage, and stop worrying about stepping on toes or this monster is gonna eat you all for lunch. Dig?

No can do on your suggestions; it has been deemed "cruel and unusual" by the pantywaists.
