    Part of the problem is that a crime has not been comitted until they actually leave the store with merchandise that has not been paid for. 10-20 patrons in the store all at once can be a great night profit wise or a terrible night loss wise.

    Being armed and trying to confront one or more of them can make the situation go all kinds of bad real quick. Locking the doors on them will have the ACLU all in a tizzy cryin' false imprisonment or something else a baby would say.

    Short of having LEO parked there, or allowing only 2 people in the store at one time the only solution I see is like someone mentioned before: Have everything locked up. Customer says what they want, clerk rings it up and collects payment, associate clerk picks order and distributes through another secured window.

    This crap infuriates me and it's going to turn violent, they will soon get bored with stealing pork rinds and pigs feet and they'll start going for regular customers wallets and jewelry and finally the clerk and cash register. Someone will confront them and end up dead or worse. Unfortunately our laws are set up to protect these miscreants from the street justice they deserve.

    I do my best to stay out of these stores especially after 11 pm.

    C-stores prices on most things are already high and this will not help that matter.

    They already have gotten violent, according to the story: "This summer, spontaneous incidents of group violence -- dubbed "flash robs" -- have happened in Minneapolis, Chicago, Cleveland, New York and Washington, among other cities. Most episodes involved groups of young people looting stores or assaulting pedestrians and then running off."

    If I owned that store I'd hire a few large dudes to hang out in the back and when the teens come back let them loose to kick as much tail as they can.
