    SUFFOLK -- Two men robbed a barber shop full of customers in Suffolk.
    It happened around 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Lafayette's Barber Shop on E. Washington Street.
    The suspects got cash and from the owner, employees and customers and even took one customer's keys, and then left.
    One employee was struck in the head with the gun, said city spokeswoman Debbie George.
    He was treated at Sentara Obici.
    If you know anything about this armed robbery, call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

    Too bad they didn't get shot by the customer under the cape like in the westerns. Someday when more carry, these thugs may think twice about their crimes....

    It would have been a bad thing if that happened in my Barbershop.
    I am allways armed while getting my hair cut. And my Barber has a shotgun under his cash drawer.

    If it just me or os anyone else alarmed at how brazen the Bad Guys have gotten lately?

    Yes they have and why not, they have nothing to fear, jail/prison is a joke, it's 3 hots and a cot, color TV, good meals, free medical care, free dental and everything else paid for, they get to go out to an exercise yard and become bigger and stronger and go out and rob more people with their new found strength and new found ways of doing more robberies.

    Of course they are getting more brazen, why not, who's going to stop them, the Police, possibly, put them in jail, the justice system turns around and slaps them with some silly sentence or fine and lets them out and half the time, they end up paying sqwuat because they can't afford it or they wouldn't be robbing people in the first place.

    Ok, rank over, I feel better.

    Recently, in a neighboring county, the inmates started to complain because the food wasn't good! Seriously? What a world!

    I guess the barber's straight-edge wasn't much of a deterrent.
    Well, at least no one was killed this time.
