    Ok, I'm sick of these! Let's get to the root of this!! Are these thugs robbing as they need food for the evening, drugs, or just for the kick of it because someone who controls them(gang leaders) said to do it to be a man???

    They robbed a Checkers??? What did they get? $25 cash and an order of fries to go?

    There is no possible way this guy could have used a weapon to rob Checkers. Checkers serves alcohol, and therefore under NC law, it is illegal to possess a firearm in their establishment. Everyone knows that "gun conrtol" laws work, and are obeyed by everyone--even criminals, so there is NO POSSIBLE way he could have had a gun there. PLEASE, WITN, when will you stop publishing these stories that are untrue and obviously made-up?
