Grover Beach armed robberA man robbed the Grover Beach Market Express convenience store at gunpoint Friday night. However, store management did not report it until Sunday after an officer walked through the store.

Why does this guy look so familiar? I know I have seen this face before…

So if this armed robber had killed someone on Saturday would these idiots be charged as accessories? Of course not. They are either crooked or stupid, no other reason can apply. Don’t ever go in to this place, your life is in danger.

Wait just a f***in’ minute here! Robbed Friday? Reported Sunday? Something smells here…

I don’t get it! Why the f*** rob a “C” store for a few bucks when you’ll get the same amount of time for hitting say a supermarket for some real money? It don’t make sense to me… (And yes, some supermarkets depending on the time of the month DO carry REAL money, take my word for it…)

And Dude, a HAT!

I was going to reply with some negativity, but I re-thought it: Great idea! Rob a supermarket!

(just in case some less than evolved potential robber reads this)

That wasn’t too responsible of me, was it? Really though, how the hell someone would rob at gun point for a reward of maybe, MAYBE, a couple of hundred bucks alludes me. Robbery is robbery, there is no dollar amount that dictates the amount of time you’d get if caught and convicted; so why wouldn’t you go around the corner and push your luck with a place that does hold tens-of-thousands of dollars?

California Penal Code Section 211 “Robbery”

“Robbery is defined as the felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another, from their person or immediate presence, and against their will, accomplished by means of force or fear.” Punishable by 2,3 or 5 years in prison.


“Use of a firearm: If you use a firearm during the commission of a robbery, you can be sentenced to an additional and consecutive term of 10 years in state prison”

Up to 15 years for a couple of hundred bucks, MAYBE, shit! Risk v. Rewards there criminals…

You’re the one with the record, so I guess you probably know best.

Wow, business must be great if you can’t even take the time to call the cops when you get robbed!

Maybe the folks at the market don’t like the cops much? Perhaps they had to “clean” a bit first, before reporting? Who’s to say.
