    Why don't ALL gas stations and convenience stores use bullet proof glass partitions (to separate the clerk from customers) after dark here? They do in most every big city I have lived in. Cuts WAY down on robberies, and makes it safer for those trying to earn a living as a cashier. Whats a life worth vs. cost of the safety glass???

    Anyone who knows these jerks and isn't calling the police are aiding and abetting..do the right thing before you're responsible for someone getting more hurt or killed.
