    Armed robberies of local businesses should not be tolerated in any way. These acts must be dissuaded through harsh punishment. Justice must be served before someone innocent is physically harmed or killed. Do not tolerate violent thugs who prey upon the honest hardworking people who make our city run. If you know this person, report them to authorities. No tolerance for this sub-human behavior.
