Robbers 4, Cops 1. Maybe now is a good time for the cops to stop trying to nail middle class moms and dads with minor traffic violations.

Guns are a good thing, I have a few.

Have to wonder if these are the same robbers that robbed cig. express and Kragens.

A lot of similaraties:

1. African American
2. Three robbers with a gun, although Kragens had two, maybe they added one for intimidation.
3. Morning-noon hours
4. All in Mtn. View

They will get caught.

With the pattern (as mentioned above) that these robberies keep happening in, I'd be surprised if the police were not already formulating a profile to capture them in the near future. If they are not, they are going to look rather foolish in the crime solution department. Let's hope they're on the ball.

Time to start profiling. Shoot first and ask questions later.
