    I can't believe the store would have no video of him coming in the door before he put on the mask, unless their system was broken.

    "An outreach program could have sent this lost soul in a different direction than a life of crime." Umm, okay. maybe. But the threat of some severe punishment might have also deterred him from committing this sort of crime. We are too soft on crime!
