    Very brave! as long as there is no weapon in sight, might deter some of these robberies! Some of them aren’t dumb enought to risk jail for a few bucks so they’re all talk and no action, however, many of them are violent drug addicts and career criminals. Most businesses can afford to lose a few bucks, but your families and friends cannot afford to lose you!
