    "I don't need to be carrying a gun... I'm not in a war zone". Errrrrrr! Wrong. The clerk was an idiot for coming out from behind the bullet-proof glass, IMO.

    And did the reporter really say "This gun is for you guys in case someone comes in here clownin'..."?

    Sounds like when the little thugs come in with that mentality the proper response would be to euthanise them immediately

    That response is just sad. No other word for it. It is not really aimed at the officers, but to their system that is understaffed.

    That clerk should think about getting some practice with that weapon and then decide what his life is worth. He might want to give serious thought to using it if this happens again...if he really values his life (which I bet he does).

    I would move out of that area if I had to give up all I owned and walked.

    I think the clerk should think about another line of work. They don't call convenience stores "the poor man's ATM" for nothing... convenience store clerk is one of the most dangerous jobs in America.

    Last year my car broke down in a very bad part of Phoenix. I was able to pull into a convenience store parking lot, and as I was waiting for the tow truck I went inside for a cold drink. As I paid, I noticed that on either side of the door there was a giant "ruler" - sort of a height gauge. I asked the attendant about that, and he said it's to help them provide a better description of any robbers!

    Comic Ron White said he was 6'2" to 6'4" depending on which convienience store he was in.

    Just wanted to comment on a post to get to 100. Woo Hoo Now if I ever get to meet Geko45 or Sixto my life will be complete.

    I guess I need to buy a dog and name him LIFE so I can say I have one. They always said when you get old little things matter. Just didn't know it would come this soon. lol

    If I had to guess, I would say that I've seen that at 80% of all convenience stores, not just ones in bad parts of major cities.
