    I'm not seeing from the article that there was no gun used in this robbery; where are people getting that from? Unless the guy had some really obvious tattoes (he did have on long sleeves and pants and a hat) or injuries, I'm not sure how the description could have been any better, really. Hope they get this guy...people don't need to be going to work trying to support themselves and having to deal with being victimized by criminals.

    What? The dude missed out on the extreme double coupons, just like I did.

    I have to give credit where credit is due. I know it must have been painful for WRAL to post this. When the Raleigh police released the photo, they really didn't have a choice but I am surprised that they ran anything at all.

    Another crime headline almost expected in Raleigh lately. Hope they catch the guy soon and put him away. My son worked at that store as well as the Leesville Rd one.

    Ahhh, explanation needed I see. The description and picture are the same, describing a large population. My comment was if this guy didn't have a gun, was that small then how did he get away with it, get it? Later Dude........

    Well, this certainly is a shocker.

    That description just identified half of the black population in Raleigh. No gun? Wonder why he got away with it? Really? 5'10", thin build?
