    SO you advocate having these leeches remain in business and rob poor people of their money AND provide a nucleus for other crimes?

    It would be helpful if they just came out and said that; Knicks fans have to be few and far between.

    That is a Knicks hat. Why can't they just say that? It might help.

    The "allegedly" here is not whether the place was robbed or not, but whether this is the man who committed the robbery.

    What difference are you looking for with a white robber? They also use the word "allegedly" when referring to the man, because they have to prove it was him.

    Nah the story reads allegedly robbed, so the police are not sure if a robbery happened. Saw this story on the noon news too. Same picture, full description of this person who the police just want to talk with. A few witnesses too who brought up the possibility of the this person showing a gun too. But once again, it was an alleged robbery. I wish a white guy would do something like this so we could see how that is reported and handled. Unfortunately it's always a black guy, so I wait.

    Criminals robbing criminals. Sort of like a home invasion of a drug dealer, except drug dealers don't buy legislators in an attempt to make their trade legal.
