    right! he isn't a professional thief, probably didn't have a gun, but he has made some employees scared to come to work and he made himself into a thief. Big mistake. Nothing good happens after midnight.

    come on! down east or out western state the jobs are very rare, but here?, no the man wasn't stealing food to eat. He's a thief and don't make him less than an 'armed' robber scaring people to give him money. He should have made a card board sign and stood on the corner to get a couple of hundred bucks.

    People think money and possesions control people and have more power then people do.....We put the value into money,we put the power into possesions,we have the power to survive with or without money for we created money as a means of survival money did not exist when the world began.
