    I'd like to point out that someone is entering my name and posting as me. At least I know the truth. The latest post at 1:46 PM was not by me.

    @Ryan. You should do two things, learn how to spell and learn how to read before you make any comments. Article says a "white or Hispanic man in his 20s." Didn't say a thing about him being black.

    No surprise. You know what I want to say but I guess you'll call me a racist. Well, sorry for keeping it real. Nuff said.

    I think someone watched too much SouthPark with the Burger King robbery episode. And even asking a Burger King Robber I still dont get it.. Ambition not high enough for a Wendys or something?

    Colorado's an open carry state. The police can't protect you, they only clean up the mess.

    Skibike4x4 - you are a moron. The City decised to cut the police force if they couldn't extort more money out of it's citizens. If they managed the millions of tax dollars they already have, they wouldn't have to touch the police department.

    Laugh-No amount of police are going to stop robberies. They happen. They've always happened and they will continue to happen. There's nothing that can be done about it.

    Barnie, looks like the PC police are after YOU! LOL. It's good to have you back! If you do go to KRDO they do say a black man wearing dark clothes. I think the convenience stores, fast food restaurants are going to have to find a way to protect their employees from these kind of things happening. Bullet proof glass, arming them maybe?

    LOL. Wow, anyone think Barny works for KRDO? Sounds like something they'd do. Why are you on KKTV.com if you don't like their news?
