I look forward to the day

I look forward to the day when someone steps out and blows away the bandit with a shot gun. IF armed robbery isn't nipped in the bud it is going to get to the point that their will be home invasions and more street robberies. Armed robbers deserve to die.Lets all work together to make it happen.

Get a gun permit and carry it

Get a gun permit and carry it with you. We must all supplement the police department. It takes a village to raise a child. It takes everyone carrying a gun to keep the peace.

No job is worth getting hurt

No job is worth getting hurt over. Give them the money. It's just money. Justus will tell you that the white media is discriminating against minorities. Even though it wasn't a white man that committed the robbery.

Why did the guy worker just

Why did the guy worker just run away leaving the woman worker who appears to be pregnant in the store? If I was her... I wouldn't want to work along with him anymore.... probably find another place to work as well... many robbers aren't too bright... just about any place of business these days have surveillance camera.... stupidity.... I don't feel for him but I feel for the families that will be affected by this dumb decision...

We need another sheriff that

We need another sheriff that will put stake outs on these stores with shoot to kill orders. These ignorant punks need to die. I doubt if anyone will miss them since they apparently do not have any family that gives a damn about them. Some 8x10 color glossys of their bodies bleeding in the Quiki-Mart parking lot might deter Tyrone and his buddies from trying the same thing. If not, hey, ammunition is cheap so just keep shooting them. It's a lot cheaper than a trial and then housing their worthless stupid hides.
