This is the 3rd armed robbery in a week in the area -- first the Rite Aid near Target, then the Manhattan Bagel at 611 & 263, and then this. Something is seriously "up" with this. I wonder if they're all related.

You forgot to add McDonald's, which makes this number FOUR on a verrrrry short time. What is happening with law enforcement?

I don't understand why our lawmakers still in sleep when country going down with economic crisis. We need to get back our all outsourced job ASAP which will be the greatest choice for us.
Mohammod Siddiquee October 20, 2012 at 06:09 AM
Before go after law enforcement, please tell our lawmakers that we need to get back our jobs from overseas.

Our corporate greed is killing our national pride of # 1 country in the world. We have to probe that we are not only greatest by military power, we can lead the world economically.

They will get caught soon. Dumb-asses.

If we get 4 more years of Obama you can expect more of the same. With the economy in the crapper, these criminals need to supplement there welfare and food stamps somehow
Dude October 20, 2012 at 12:14 PM
Two black males with hoodies commit a robbery...hmmmmm...has absolutely NOTHING to do with the economy. It's a way of life for these cretons. If they don't get caught, they have some cash and a quick laugh. If they get caught, they go to jail, eat free, watch free cable and have a family reunion.

Roman Gabriel -- four more years of Obama would mean we're four years closer to getting out of the giant hole that Bush dug us into... if Romney gets elected than it'll be taking steps back and just digging deeper. If you look back in history then you see that it takes time to get out of the hole, nothing is instant. So you can't exactly blame Obama for the situation we're in, he happened to get elected president at a bad time, but he's moving things forward .. Romney would take a thousand steps back and be just as bad or worse than Bush.

Jerk off Obama said unemployment would be under 6%, the deficet in half, and a new thriving American economy. He never said he needed 8 years. ALL his policies have failed. It is liberal, blind , "takers" that are killing us. Gee electing a President that has actually ran a buisness, made a pay roll, and thrived in the private sector, sound like a bad idea. Get your head out of your ass and wake up.

The recent rash of armed holdups in the area are not related to Law Enforcement. The Abington Police are the Best! The problem lies with the economy, drug use and a failed Philadelphia Court System. DA Ferman is top notch a well. Lets put the blame where it should be placed. Fortunately no one has been injured or killed thus far.

Mr. Dude, While you may have a point. It was defiantly middle aged and older white guys that's to blame for the mess we are in!! Young black guys with guns and hoodies couldn't pull off the heist we witnessed against the American people. So maybe people on here will start to look at white guys with nice cars and expensive suits the same way they do when they see a black guy with a hoodie on :). Trust me if you look close enough at the news the poor white guys are robbing as well.

I'm so sorry everyone, my meds kicked in late this morning so I thought I would udate my last post. Of course I realize that the republicans have blocked EVERY jobs act that could help get unemployment down, including one bill for veterans, for gosh shakes. Anywho, when I have a clear, medicated head I see that over 30 months of private sector job growth is amazing, especially when that gosh darn Bush was losing over 800k jobs a month when President Obama took office. And of course, the president did save the American auto industry, lets not forget that. Gee I feel so much better today, have a great day all!
Roman Gabriel October 20, 2012 at 03:11 PM
Forget politics ( for a second). R G O M, that is the funniest thing I've seen on the Patch. Well done. Now if you could just use your talents to see how shitty this country has become in the last four years.
Roman Garbiel On Meds October 20, 2012 at 03:19 PM
I love when I crack me up! Anywho, I do know that the country has not been "poopier" since the great depression (such language i use when I'm having one of my "spells") when the President took office and our recovery now is on track to match or beat President Reagan's efforts in the 80s. Oh 4 more years of this great President would be a gift to us all! Have a great day!

I was thinking the same thing. It seems like more than just random crime.
NoSanta October 22, 2012 at 04:05 AM
Or better yet, put-down.
cheryl jones October 22, 2012 at 11:39 AM
Roman Gabriel, sure blame the black guy! Get a life LOSER!!!!!!!!!
Victor B. Krievins October 22, 2012 at 02:17 PM
No one is blaming the "Black Guy". Both Blacks and Whites alike are committing these holdups. The facts remain the the primary reasons for crime are: The Economy, Drug use and the Court System which has collapsed in Philadelphia. The other reasons include not completing schooling past the 10th grade as well as the lack of a father figure.
Marilyn Miller October 22, 2012 at 03:26 PM
cheryl jones - your problem is you are looking at the President as a Black guy - you are the loser - He is the PRESIDENT - in Roman's message it said nothing about the Black man - he said Obama - so you need a LIFE, LOSER
Paul Nolan October 22, 2012 at 07:24 PM
