    Why arent these boys at home studying for school? Probably because the moms a crack addict and they have no idea who their daddy is.

    This is disgusting...the employee is working at an honest job and these scumbags manhandle him instead of just taking the money and leaving. These robbers should be pistol-whipped when they are caught. No mercy from my viewpoint.

    to CT-Yankee.........Brilliant idea. Two guns in a fast food joint. One good guy and one. Do not expect shooting or violence. That is insane.

      To quote a great philosopher of our time - "I'd rather be tried by 6 than carried out by 12.” Don’t be a coward! These thugs know that they will either end up in a casket or incarcerated – so why put the burden on the tax payers.

        ....you sure blew it with that response. It's "judged by twelve" and "carried by six". Think "six" pall bearers. Which "great philosopher" do you credit with this stupid, over-used phrase?

    wow thanks for the worthless info...so unless you just happened to be there or be driving by you wouldn't even know what to look for. Like what kind of car were they driving? Did this happen yesterday...today or two weeks ago. What time did it occur morning? Afternoon? What race and gender were the suspects? any identifying tatoos/piercings. Aprroximate height? Seriously if Greenville Police wanted suspects they would have provided this information or atleas have asked it...they can obtain the majority of that info from the cameras that are atthe drive thru and inside. Greenville Police are the laziest cops in NC. I think they should take Krispy Kreme out of Greenville and see what happens..just saying

    I can't help but wonder what would have happened if somebody in the BK was carrying a weapon. Since the bad guys chose to man-handle an innocent bystander, I'd like to think I would have pulled and stopped the activity......preferably without having to shoot.

    I couldn't disagree more...fast food employees are low paying, low respect jobs and most the public think they are servants and they can be talked to any old way or treated however. These folks are good hard working people and to lay the blame at their feet is just plain wrong. This MIGHT be the case in some incidents but certianly not the norm. There is alot of gang activity, the economy is bad and people are desperate....desperate people do desperate things...right or wrong...but knock off the finger pointing that is simply not right. AND No we do not work in fast food...we work at PCMH.

      You'd think that guy in the "king" outfit would have caught them...even punished them....but I guess he wasn't there today.

    The media should never mention the amount of money taken during a robbery. You are just inviting more of the same. If you must mention an amount, say $25.00.
