    I am NOT saying he was a good person. NOR did i condone what he did. I merely pointed out that it was NOT “ARMED ROBBERY” – yes it was “STRONG ARMING” but NOT armed robbery. Yes, i know the difference.

    I dealt with these ‘Go-Rillas’ [Flip Wilson’s Term for ’em] for 17 yrs. as a State Correction Officer. They don’t need any weapons, to F-Up someone! Or to “Strong Arm” Rob anyone NOT Armed! No one said he was Armed! ‘Strong Arm’ Robery, means to Physically Subdue someone, and take their Money/Merchandise! And a police call was received, with Both Perps descriptions and probable location, just before the event. Read the News!

    No I do not believe he had a right to attach a cop. If the cop did anything wrong get it on video or report it right away. To confront a bad cop is never a good idea to do unless you can get the proof. In this case I do not believe the cops was wrong. I was just replying to someone else’s comment. I do not remember my point, but believe it had something to do with he had a reason to stop and talk to them.

      Eight months ago we didn’t know that the Officer DID know about the convenience store robbery.
      Either way, the Officer was right to tell them to get out of the road.
