    Iam tired off this crap when are the police going to catch these guys seems like they have been doing this at lest 3 years they have no fear of the police because no one gets caught wait i take that back if i was to rob some place I would get caught with in the hour. This stuff makes me mad I want to be part of a robbery task force sounds like I could cash an easy check and have health dental and a pention and never have to catch any one. Maybe I just a little salty

    Again.... No mention of this individual's color. Why? Did they not see what color he was? That might help ID him. But it might also hurt someone's feelings.. Which is more important? I guess we know what WITN thinks.

    Sounds like Batman could be the culprit here.

    Robbery is a fast growing vocation in the area. All you need is a gun and a lack of fear. (no morals is a plus, too)...The risk is high but the rewards are big and you get street creds as well.
