    The guy should have had a concealed carry permit and been
    carrying. That would have limited these 5 guys' career choice.

    This is beginning to be a pattern and I wonder if people are just saying these things for attention. Nothing ever comes of these "so-called" robberies. They should realize when they lie about these things, it makes it harder for people to beleive when a real robbery occur, remember the story about the boy who cried wolf?

    What is up w/so many robberies on NCSU campus lately? Is it typical and just not normally so publicized or what?

    I'm sorry, but I have to ask. What's with the "light-complexioned" and "dark-complexioned" descriptions. Are they "light-complexioned" and "dark-complexioned" caucasians, afraican-americans, or one of each? I just really got the impression that the descriptions were trying to be politically correct, possibly at the expense of providing a good description.

    Don't flame me, this is just an opinion. Does anyone feel the same?

    Are robberies on the rise or am I just paying more attention?
    What makes people think they can take whatever they want? Is it drug driven? Get a job! Work like the majority of us do. NOBODY owes ANYONE handouts!

    Another slap on the wrist coming! Wonder how many of them were already on probation.
