    Why do criminals feel the need to rob gas stations? I've worked at gas stations for a few years while in college and we never kept anything over $40 in the cash till. Guess these criminals really aren't known for being the brightest crayon in the box. I'm glad that no one was hurt!

      tallyChick that is easy to answer. The thugs know that the attendants have been ordered not to defend themselves. They bring a weapon to work, they get fired. Period. Thugs are lazy. Thugs are cowards. Thugs go after *easy prey*. There should be a lesson to the wise in there . . . .

    Have you noticed that since Rick Scott stole the election with his big money republicans that crime has gone thru the roof. This governor has stolen our state jobs, steelers breed crime.

      Have you noticed that since I began your reading your comment and I became dumber and dumber. Crime in Tally has always been high, because we have a large amount of wanna be gangsta thugs and lazy black people who aren't willing to work for a dollar. Nothing to do with Scott.

      Do you still hate Scott because he forced you to take care of your own medical insurance and 401k, like the private sector?

    Ever wonder why we never see a clear shot of a thief? Because everyone knows the camera's in stores are not for seeing the thief, it's to see the employees who steal.

      YEAH!!! go to the ck on orange and LOOK AT the screen they have in the store. the one right in front of the reg. go to the parkway store, beside the other one there is a BIG one right behind the cashier. they are not just for the employees who steal. if you don't look for this screens and camera's you just maybe the one the law picks up. i understand some of the others stores are putting extra screens SO THE CASHIERS CAN SEE WHAT IS GOING ON.

      you don't have a clue what you are talking about they don't want free things what they want is jobs and the tax to be FAIR. nothing I have heard is about free anything. they want the crooks out of office and someone adjust the taxes to be more fair. the rich get richer and the poor get poor. nothing hard to understand. JOBS AND FAIR TAXES.

        what's fair, for the rich to pay an even HIGHER tax percentage. they already pay a higher percentage than you do. yeah they have a huge % of the wealth, but they also pay a huge % of the taxes...

        I think it is YOU who doesn't have a clue about Occupy Wall St. I've seen all kinds of videos of kids asking for free stuff. I've seen video of kids asking for their tuition and student loans be paid off. If it is jobs they want then maybe they should have chosen a degree that is actually employable. What you have are snotty little rich white kids with trust funds with nothing better to do. THAT is Occupy Wall Street!

        Fair taxes...you mean the 47% of people who have zero federal liability are wanting to pay even less? So, why is the 53% supporting you?
