    They can't make enough off welfare and medicaid so they have to supplement their income.

    A pawn shop? Wow! Most of those guys are packing or have shotguns strapped under the counter. Crooks were lucky this time it seems.

        Gee petey, you know it all. I was carrying..but the thing you don't know is..there were 2 young teenagers standing 2 feet to my left with there hands up. Would you have started a gun fight with them there? Or just given up the cash? Nah, you would have played macho and drew, fired and moved and let the girls taken the shotgun blast.

    It appears that they have bought into BHO's policy of 'Wealth Redistribution'.

    It won't matter if the thugs are caught or not. Our judicial system sucks. Criminals get off with a slap on the hand. And of course, look what we have in our Congress, Senate, and President. A bunch of crooked politicians. They commit crimes that cost the taxpayer and nobody even bats an eye.

    They must have been doing there last-minute Christmas shopping .most importantly no one was hurt. Wendys dad needs to get a 44mag behind the counter that will put a end to there shopping.

    Sadly, outrageous crime is infiltrating every city in America. It's a 'sign of the times.' I pray the 'powers that reign over us' will step in and give us a hand in oppressing these 'thugs'. God Bless our law enforcement men and women, our fire and emergency persons too.

        Youre right. People and their cliche's tend to babble on senselessly.

      LEO's in this area are a total joke. A bunch of no class, uneducated, rednecks. You better pray for them, it would take something devine to change those morons.

        Sounds like you have an 'axe to grind'. Yes; I use cliches; they're so convenient.

    Love their outfits and how they color coordinated. Should we be on the lookey out for a pair of identical twins?
