    Maybe the "rules" for a WWW should be more clearly defined!

    GREENSBORO A man pointed a gun at a store clerk as the Walmart Supercenter was robbed Wednesday.

    Greensboro police said the incident happened at 8:50 p.m. Wednesday at the Walmart at 4424 W. Wendover Ave.

    According to police, a man was leaving the store with a shopping cart when an employee asked to see his receipt. The man pulled a gun and placed it on the employee's chest. He fled with an undisclosed amount of merchandise.

    Police did not identify the clerk. No injuries were reported.

    The suspect is described as a black man in his early 20s with a medium build who was wearing dark clothing and a black baseball cap. Anyone with information about this incident can call Crime Stoppers at 373-1000.
    A black man in his early 20's, medium build, wearing dark clothing and a baseball cap...Mmmmmmm

    Should be easy to find HIM...

    The guy is just lucky he didn't pull that stunt back at the nacho stand.

    They need to get those greeters a new kind of vest--

    Desperate people do dumb and desperate things. Stupid people do stupid things. This guy was just plain stupid. He had no sense that pulling the gun changed what at worst was a "go back to the register and pay for it moment" into armed robbery. Ugh.

    I'm afraid you are correct.

    He's lucky that someone didn't do a double-tap on him.

    If he stuck a gun to the guy's chest I would say that you would be justified (at least in Fl) for the shooting.

    Good point. I wonder how long it's going to be before we see a LEO standing next to the receipt checker. Or better yet, rent-a-cops doing receipt checking.

    Maybe we CC folks could do some "part time Wal-Mart" greeting / reciept checking? We do have the training, don't we?

    Nope. On second thought, think I'll pass. My time and ammo are way too valuable.
