    What confuses me is the fact that the security cameras in place in these high risk areas have little to zero quality. Identification would come quicker and become less enticing with a modern camera and would seem vital for protecting single employee work days.

    I can't believe that the guy was in there for 2 1/2 minutes with 2 other people in the store....BEHIND HIS BACK.... that could have and should have jumped him or nailed him with something. He had the knife down most of the time and he's obviously a bumbling idiot so he would have been easy to take down. Tsk tsk.

    So let me get this straight here, RNC are looking for this guy and I guess wish to lay charges. The thing that boggles me is that this scum bag will be back on the streets in no time. He may spend a night or two in the lock up!!! Brutal!
