    I think it is time for store owners to arm themselves and blow a few of these creeps away. Wingluvr said it right that this will drive prices up.

    KKTV Viewer , you are a moron! I guess you dont mind all the crime that is being done in the city on a daily basis!! The Police do their jobs by catching these pathetic criminals but then they get let out and go about committing more crimes. If you are sympathetic to the criminals are you one of them?

    booo, we are sick and tired of your whining. if you want to do something about it, move to China or Russia yourself and let the great police officers do their job. what's that? you rob the place? turn yourself in and keep your comments to yourself.

    sick of hearing about armed robberies. an end must come to these. I think there should be an over haul of the justice system, i.e. if and when the criminals are caught, their lives should be made so miserable (and no in prison most of these criminals continue their crimes or find ways to continue) and they get out with a slap on the wrist and do the same thing again. i think for such criminals who have no regard for anyone else or society and the community , catch them, convict them and send them to China or Russia. Since we import so much from China , we can export our criminals to them for free and they will make them work in their coal mines. Because I know in our country the criminals have more rights.
