    Rap Wannabe In "Street Cred" Stickups

    Hip-hop dope, 21, nabbed after botched robbery of Florida store

    MAY 11--Meet Steven Gilmore. The wannabe rapper tried to rob a Florida convenience store Friday night and shot an employee in the head with a BB gun in a bid to establish "street cred" for his nascent hip-hop career. The 21-year-old Gilmore, seen in the below mug shot, admitted his harebrained scheme after he was arrested Saturday night, according to Gainesville police. Gilmore, who also copped to a stickup of the Hungry Howie's restaurant, told police that he thought the robberies would provide him the kind of reputation he apparently believes is required in the rap world. According to a Gainesville Police Department report, Gilmore, wearing a bandanna over his face and carrying a BB gun, fled empty-handed from the Super Store convenience outlet after struggling with a store clerk over the weapon. During the encounter, the clerk, Dharmedra Patel, was shot in the temple and suffered a laceration and bleeding. The Hungry Howie's heist netted Gilmore about $900, records show, and he departed the crime scene on a moped driven by a 16-year-old accomplice. The aspiring rap performer's career is now on hold as he faces attempted armed robbery and aggravated assault charges. He is currently being held in the Alachua County Jail on the felony counts.

    His get-away vehicle was a moped driven by a 16 year old?

    I guess it takes all kinds...
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    And these people vote
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    Did he steal $900 or did he flee empty handed? Either way, this guy is a nitwit.

    The Dumb BG mentioned by the OP in the story this is not his first time being arrested for something dumb. Leon county has already had him stay at the local jail. This guy is not only a crook, but the dumbest of them all. Ive met the guy, trust me this is one of his more brilliant plans.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.

    I'm trying to decide if this is so sad that it's funny or if it's just plain funny . This guy has "harebrained" down to an art.
    TerriLi, got some more good ones featuring this character ?
