    You have a right to protect your property store owners. Shoot to kill. They will see then that people are sick and tired of them

    We need stricter gun control so none of these young men get hurt while they are out there trying to get by.

      Criminals don't follow the law. Limiting ownership only hurts those of use who legally own. Crooks don't care what law you enact, they dont' follow them.

      No jobs stolen, just got rid of waste. Boo Hoo. A lot more private jobs have been created than public jobs lost. Try a little unbiased research. Can you?

Oh yeah, I am a state worker, so is my wife. Still employed, that girl who played on her phone all day isn't though. Hmmmm. Must be a race thing. Can't possibly be justified.

      Have you noticed that a majority of the people committing these crimes appear to never have worked to begin with! By the way, if you lost your job it was more than likely because you don't know how to spell, not because of Rick Scott.

      It has been through the roof. Scott wasn't even in office when the shootout and the Circle K Corral went down or some of the other Circle K shootouts, various Dollar Stores, Subway, and McD were getting boosted.

      Tony, I fired you because you showed up late and didn't work while you were here. We haven't lost a step since I cut you.
