I've been thinking about this the last few days.
I was watching the news the other night and there was a story about attempted armed robberies in our area. I noticed on the screen was a picture of the ATM that I frequent. I have recently changed positions at work and no longer go by this particular ATM everyday but I still go there occasionally. The story was about two BGs who have attempted to rob people stopped at the ATM on three different occasions in the past two weeks. They also are believed to have attempted to rob two convenience stores within a mile of the ATM.
My question, do you carry on business as usual knowing you carry a weapon and should be able to defend yourself if need be or do you avoid the ATM and the next time you need cash and are in the area choose to go a few miles out of your way to meet your needs?
I haven't had to answer the question yet but I believe I will go to a different ATM till they catch the guys or I feel like enough time has passed and it is "safe" to go back there.
Have any of you had this situation occur?
