I know it's appropriate just about any time you read the police blotter, but really; macing store employees? What is this world coming to?

What did the videos cameras outside the store show? I work in that shopping center and wish employees of my store had a picture of them given out by The Police Department to ensure our safety at closing / Why wasn't this done ? we are a relative small community and things like this may help reduce the future possiblity of this happening again.

low income housing means low low people who will do just about anything to get something for free, wish all low income in Yorkville would disappear
