    I am always nervous when I go into that store, especially late at night. And I feel very bad for the poor staff who have to work behind the counter, for probably very little pay, who have to then face such insanity. If I ran this island, thieves – especially armed and violent ones – would never want to steal again, they would be punished so hard.
