    “accused of trying to rob a Family Dollar store at gunpoint.”
    Does this mean it did not work?

    Looks like a Dollar Security Camera took this picture………Need to $pend a little more on these cameras….
    Put a sign on the door………You may not enter this store with the Hoodie on your Head!
    Saw that sign at another business a while back…….

    News2me, first thing dead employees are cheaper that cameras and second putting up a hoodie sign will get you protest marches and mega unwinnable lawsuits.

    “Police said he as wearing a white hooded long-sleeve shirt,”

    I’m pretty sure that means he’s innocent and it’s somehow my fault.

      Wait, I’m confused, so you was present during the robbery? Or are you trying to inadvertantly compare a innocent teen walking home to this thug.White people always talking sh*t on the internet.

        Read the articL. Don’t go gettin racist . The teen entered the store with a “handgun” that is no innocent teenager . All intentions on robbing the place . Doesn’t matter what “color ” he is just the fact that he was attempting to rob the business !
