Lemme guess....one of Holder’s peeps.
Texas has a "felony murder" rule ... driver may find himself in a world of $#!+.
Robbing a cell phone store? Somebody please help me out here. How much cash is likely to be on hand at a cell phone store? Most shoppers would be paying by credit or debit card, and the Obamaphone weasels probably pull out their EBT.
Another attempt at income redistribution thwarted.
Gives a whole new meaning to “Reach out and touch someone.”.
“Can you hear me now?”
I love your gathering of these reports for us, Mr. Twain! I look forward to them every day!
“Lemme guess....one of Holders peeps.”
That happened only a mile from where I sit. Your guess is very possible, it is that kind of area. At any rate, I can pretty well guaran-damn-tee you that it was a Democrat.
Gee, too bad the getaway driver died too.
Thank you for the kind words. I have posted many thousands of articles to the banglist, because the MSM will not cover them.
Self appointed, self disciplined, self satisfied.
Chances are they were not after cash, but it was a nice side bonus for a few minutes work. They were after phones.
Here’s a story from a couple of days ago in Fort Worth:
On the TV news later that night (not the report on the video from the link), the reporter mentioned the store was having a release sale special on the new Samsung. She postulated the thieves (0’s children) knew there would probably be additional stock on hand for the promotion and they would be able to get a few more phones than normal. Since the phones run around $400, and they walked away with 10+ phones, it was a better haul for them to steal the phones and sell them rather than simply going in a taking money from the customers and the register.
In high skrool, I worked in that area. Boss never let us work alone. You lay something down, it was gone. You turn your back, it was gone.
People sat in the parking lot or near-by looking for something to steal.
I doubt things have gotten any better since the late ‘70’s.
It happens a lot. They steal the high end phones and resell them on Craigslist or eBay. People that don’t have good credit will also stop by the store to pay their bill.
