    I also grew up in Bethel. You are ridiculous! That place doesn't get robbed yearly. What are you talking about. Bethel is a great town with very little crime. He may arrive on foot but that doesn't mean he won't get caught. People talk in a small town.

    Your statement that the store is robbed almost yearly is completely false. I live in Bethel and have lived there for thirty years. Check your facts.

    I grew up in Bethel, almost yearly a man robs this store. It use to be called Blounts to those from Bethel. He arrives on foot and no one sees him until he enters, and he leaves on foot. They never catch him.

    People are going to HAVE to arm themselves with concealed weapons. I never thought I would see the day the men in my life would arm themselves, but they have. It is a sad state of affairs.
