    Good picture of the guy and that shirt - way cool. I have to believe that catching this perp will make shooting fish in a barrel look difficult by comparison.

    How do you rob a Walmart clerk? They are extremely slow.

    These guys and girls start getting into trouble at such an early age (no parental supervision) by the time they reach adulthood nobody will hire them because of their criminal past.

    "approximately 5 feet 10 to 6 inches tall" - that's an interesting height - WRAL.com again feels that it above editing its "articles"

    I think the "D" on his shirt stands for "dumb". Maybe he can be in a "People of Walmart" slideshow.

    That big D on his shirt is for Dumb.

    Robbing anyone or any business is wrong but to rob a retail store with security cameras everywhere is just dumb. He will be caught very quickly.
