    They (psychopaths who will unload at the drop of a hat) don't think like herd members. I found the commentary by the police and news people as interesting as the video. Everyone seemed surprised and appalled about this kind of thing.

    I would say typical inner city animals but, that would be unkind to animals who I tend to like much more than people.

    I have enough difficulty going to Wal Mart (land of the free, home of the ignorantly dressed) anymore. But I confess my ignorance here. What could a store named WAWA have that would be of even remote interest?

    I'm not sure which charges I'd press here, but most begin with "Glock."

    I never heard of them either.

    per Wikipedia:

    Wawa, Inc. is an American chain of convenience stores and gas stations
    located along the East Coast of the United States, operating in Pennsylvania, New Jersey,
    Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Florida.

    Many years ago, Cherry Hill NJ was a nicer affluent place to live. I take it, that has changed.

    @high pockets Thanks brother. The list of locations speaks volumes about the chain of stores. We have something like that around here. Colloquially known as "Shop N' Rob."

    Maybe if you were a little kid. Sounds like a store for toys and baby supplies.

    All the folks here in S. FL who are from up north--NJ mainly--rave about Wawa. That indorsement alone makes me leery of it. I've yet to stop at one, even thought the coffee is supposed to be pretty good.

    per Wikipedia:
    They have been around forever. Like the "White Hen Pantry" also in that part of the world. Not sure where else but they had (have) one in Northbrook, IL. Good coffee there.

    The WaWas started out as a dairy store in the eastern PA area, like Cumberland Farms in the northeast. They're morphed into convenience stores over the years. No sillier a name than, say, Piggly Wiggly.

    I would say appalled, but hardly surprised.

    Humpty Dumpty was a franchise restaurant here in Marion when I was a kid, opened maybe in the early fifties.
