Robber gets lead instead of phone

We should ban these stores .....

The guy was also shot in the arm and hand (ouch!) but I guess he fared better than the 20 yr old goof.

20 yr old kids do the stupidest things .. sometimes they get lucky, sometimes not.

I will shed no tear for this 20 yr old....

The robber had recently been released from prison for a violent crime.

If you are too dangerous to own a weapon, then you are too dangerous to be on the street.

Yet somehow he was given parole.:cuss::banghead:

I'm sure his family would say he was turning his life around and needed the phone to keep in touch with his church group.
