    Dollar tree really. What was he looking to get away with like 10 dollars. Well if he was that bad off he should have robbed a bank. Probably needed a few bucks for drugs.

      It is too bad we do not have any resources to help drug addicts in need. Although many people refuse to believe it, drug addicts are people just like you and I. If he was actually doing this for drugs, I hope he gets the help he needs. We will see more and more of this because people think the drug problem is going to disappear. We need to help each other.

    If no one was hurt, how do they charge for assault? Not that I don’t think he should get whatever’s coming! Just curious. Threatening with a firearm under the circumstance could be assault I would think. Dude get a job.
