    The ones robbing the van were barely over 5 foot. Sounds like damn children! Have there been any arrests for the other armed robberies in recent months? I hear a lot about kids getting arrested for some grass but the ones shooting and robbing us can’t be found. If only the cops didn’t have to waste their time then maybe we could be catching the violent criminals!
