    Was this guy shot in his weak arm or strong arm? It would be kinda funny if this was a real "strong armed robbery".

    Who wants to bet that these two robbers have priors and got out on early release due to overcrowding? Talking about shovel ready jobs!

    Loaded guns in the wrong hands. When will the shootings if ever stop?

    If these people who are going around robbing, etc., would simply apply for work call a job, then they would not have no time for crime. Yet they have the nerve to walk around with a loaded gun, not caring about human life. I pray justice will be served on them.
