    I bet the loser who robbed the pizza delivery man the other night is the same loser responsible for robbing the woman at the gas station this morning. I hope he gets caught and gets the max time in prison.

    If the police chief say it's not as bad as it seems he's right....it's worse!!! Greenville has a robbery or a shooting almost everyday. I am careful everywhere I go. You have to watch walking to your car at all the department stores, grocery stores, ect. The ones that are doing the crimes are mostly the unemployed. They do work at trying to figure out a way to steal what you have worked for. The crimes are happening day and night. We have to learn to watch every move we make, be aware of your surroundings at all times. Listen for foot steps. If someone you don't know starts talking and walking towards you turn around and go back in the store and ask for security. I know we don't want to do it but for our safety we must. It's not like it use to be 25 years ago....

    This did not have to happen. I feel sorry for the trauma the employees had to face when the thug came in and demanded money. Him and his parents ought to be locked up for good. He should have been raised better. Why isn't there a description of the suspect? Is it because too many look like him already?
