    He should get the death penalty, why should the tax payers pay for him for the rest of his life, his food, his shelter, his medical bills, if he did do it then he needs to be fried, forget the lethal injection.

    That's a sketchy convenience store. I see the police there pretty frequently.

    They got him and now he should be give life in prison. So many young men sitting in prison today, because they thought they were up above the law.
