    What's With All the Dollar General Stores Getting Robbed?

    This one seems particularly brutal: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ore-heist.html

    Maybe this is a Spree Killer, but every time I look on the local news around here another Dollar General is being robbed. It seems to happen 2-3 times a week just in ENC. If I'm going to hold something up with a gun - it ain't gonna be no Dollar General. I'd go for a lot more gusto than that.

    Is there some kind of Dollar General policy against cashiers packing heat? How much could they have in the register?

    Probably neighborhoods and cash ratio of consumers.

    I imagine some stores hardly do cash sales these days.

    Wow,

    Is that Trayvon Martin? I also submit, that this is why all businesses left and Detroit declared Bankruptcy.

    As defined by the Official Terrorism Training For Law Enforcement:
    What Is Domestic Terrorism?
    Extreme force and violence perpetrated by
    the people government of a country, within that country,
    for the purpose of coercing its government and population public
    into modifying its behavior"

    You are either with Our Constitution or you are with The Terrorists!

    Government...if it leans to the left it eventually means theft. - tlc

    Regardless of why you said this. It didn't work and it was a d*ckhead thing to say.

    Walsh asked in another thread if the TM/Zim case was an injustice. I can't say far as that case goes. For this case though. Yeah, that indeed was an injustice and so senseless.

    I'll laugh so hard if someone robs the Pretzel store in which I work. I figure if someone is dumb enough to think we have a lot of cash... I can probably get it back by selling him pretzels before he heads out.
    I promise I won't do it again

    Yah, low security and high cash ratios

    Yep, has to be the cash ratio...I am far more likely to spend cash in a dollar store because I'd have $2-$3 in my pocket and need 1-2 things. I hardly carry cash anymore because I spend it waay too fast.....
