    Sign of the times

    Police are looking for a man who stole $2 from a 72-year-old Long Island woman after threatening to shoot her.

    The woman was walking through the Kmart parking lot in Farmingville Sunday when a man drove up with a $10 bill in his hand and asked for change.

    When the victim said she had no money, the man pulled out a handgun and threatened to shoot her. She opened her wallet and handed him two singles.

    Couple of thing that bother me. (1) The woman was 72 that is like sticking up grandma (2) How much money did the thief think a 72 year old carries. (3) How many thiefs use their own vehicle? (4) Why didn't she get a lic plate number? (5) SA Do you let your guard down if somebody is holding money in hand.

    Would have been funny if granny shot them/him. Over $2.

    These scums have no morals and would kill you for a dollar. It happens all the time.

    "Well son, I have a few extra bucks here in my purse, let me get it for you..."
    Grandma puts hand in purse and shoots her snubbie .38 directly through the purse......wouldn't it be great?

    Stay armed...never let your guard down...stay safe!

    Sad state society is in these days, what's really sad it's still getting worse.
    Stay armed is right!

    Would have like it if Granny shot the BG(s). Sad but I fear we will hear more things like this. Stay armed and stay alert is right.

    Had to cost more in get-a-way gas money than he took in. With the price of gas at 2.23 here on Long Island he is going to have to make it up in volume.
