    Maybe this is the whole 'change we can believe in' sort of thing.

    I think if I were a store owner I'd look into installing some sort of pepper-spray system that at the press of a button would just cover every square inch. I'd have me a gas-mask handy, or maybe some kind of 5-second time-delay so I could hit the button and run out of the store, maybe out a back exit or something.

    It's escalated to aggravated assault. How long before they start bringing weapons?

    Unfortunately it's going to get more and more common, until people can figure out how to deter/combat these types of crime.

    Yeah, bad stuff. Getting involved as a 3rd party would make for a bad day for you I would bet.

    There is nothing in a convenience store worth loosing my life over. I would head for the back door, office...anywhere I could get and call 911. Let the thugs carry the whole darn store off...I'm sure Exxon has good insurance!

    I hate to say this, but the I-20/Polk Ave area is a worthless area of town. I feel I CAN say it because I grew up not too far from there and I now live in McKinney for a reason.

    These guys who attacked this store clerk should all have been dealt with, by force. Luckily 2 girls came to his rescue, or this story could have ended worse.

    From past incidents in other locations the word to go to a certain store is passed around on twitter, facebook ect.

    This may have been the case here also.

    Clerks need to get the heck out of Dodge when something like this happens.

    As has been said there is nothing worth losing your life over in those stores.

    In my area in just about all of the convience stores there are 2 clerks 24/7.

    Thank God those two girls got involved to pull the victim to safety.

    As others have said this will only get worse from here on out.

    This is not the America I grew up in.

    Wow... I hadn't heard of this until now. I was kinda hoping people around here weren't going to be as stupid as other places in the country / world (ahem - England). Guess I was wrong. Time to start carrying an extra mag I guess...

    Hard to believe how many people in this country haven't been brought up right and how little regard they give for someone's life. What's even more amazing is to think of how high the actual number must be if they can get this many to congregate in one place, over and over again throughout the country. And they just smile as they do it.

    More black people being bad... I'm sure their ancestors are proud of the progress they've made.

    Disclaimer:
    That's not to be taken as racist, I'm just sick and tired of these idiots - and yes, lately all the negative 'flash mob' activity has been black so whatever, call it what you want but it's the truth and I'm tired of sugar coating it.
