  1. We must pray for the family and all do our part to be involed in our neghborhoods. I go to this gas station and I go at all hours of the day and night, I am saddend by this crime and concerned for our country. This happens all over the USA and it’s so preventable. Everyone knows there is not much money that late at night…”What’s the biz”

    Perhaps if we all put our desires in their place less of these type of crimes will happen? Perhaps if we held in higher regard the effect of what we put in our minds; we must realize as individuals, parents, corporations, a coutry, and a planet that the real battle is faught in the mind. Who or what controls your mind?

    That’s the biz

  2. Can we have more to go by here? Type of shoes we’re looking for, obviously the guy knew how to hide himself from cameras, leave no finger prints behind, and from the looks of it, on how he held the knife, must’ve done this before. Did the cameras get the car, license plate, did he leave it some where and walked knowing the cameras would catch it????The community needs to have more to go by, so we can look and help. Let’s catch this SOB, before he strikes again.
