    Wow I know it’s Christmastime and people are stressed, wanting to buy gifts, wanting to be happy and merry. But to rob someone, and then the guy is so young. It leaves me to wonder what’s so wrong in his life and what did he need the money for. I’m relieved to hear that no one was hurt.

    Sadly, at this time of the year, people who aren’t thugs do stupid things, wanting to provide Christmas for their kids.

    I liked the ‘Man dressed in black!’ Thank goodness Johnny Cash is no longer with us!

    As usual people degenerate to one ups as far as crime is concerned, as if only black people commit crimes need I remind you of bias of the media when it comes to under reporting crimes by other segments of this society. Less we forget the recent school shootings in Colorado,the movie theater killer, Sandy Hook, Colorado etc., it may not be in Richmond Virginia but all of these crimes were not committed by blacks, Don’t want dwell on those murders, because it’s just too painful.
