You know I understand your frustration with gambling establishments in our area, but to say that you hope they all get robbed is just ignorant. These individuals work these places for minimum wage and have to worry about people like this all the time. This man should get a real job instead of robbing places. And maybe you should work a place like this for 7 something an hour to support yourself and family and have to worry about a person like this coming in and putting you through such a horrible experience. I mean gas stations sell alcohol and tobacco that have had terrible consequence for individuals and their family. Does that mean that all of them should be robbed and put out of operation. No I don't think so. Please choose your words wisely and think about the things you say. It makes no sense to wish this type of behavior on any establishment or individual.
