    Definetly should not be under funny video – a very sad commentary on our society and the invisibleness of the impacts of poverty. People do desparate things when in desparate situations…with everyone in the US having the RIGHT to bear arms I suspect more and more of this will occur. Very sad!

    yeah, my friend a male pensioner used to get food from, charities and some of it was a bit dicey and the one thing he did not like was in the spaggetti verities and anything with sauce or gravy….to help i would buy it off him, even if it wasn’t what i liked either and then he could go to the supermarket or i would go for him and get what he really liked….

    @Margaret-I agree with you about “food banks”. My daughter house was flooded so she and her family had to live in a camper until the insurance company came and the “food bank” was bringing food to all in that neighborhood. I saw it myself, most canned food was expired( some were bulging even) and it was mostly canned fruit. I don’t know what they would done if it was not for me helping them and a lot of thier friends too. Thank God for friends.

    Gerry, it is obvious that you’ve never had to obtain your
    food from a “food bank”. I worked with DCFS for 13 years and took needy families to these places. Even though, these “Pantries” supposedly buy this food with
    government grants, I noted that various foods were often
    expired. I don’t even know what some of the foods were
    (never saw packaged food like that before). Once in a while, you might get something tasty. I worked 7 different counties and never saw anything different in the line of “food banks”. If there are some good ones
    out there, please know that I’m only speaking from my experiences with so very many families and these food

    This Robber has no brain in his attic–maybe he should try the Food bank.

    I presume the store owner phoned the police after the robber left the store; so probably the robber was caught…

    This is definitely not funny.! I feel badly for both of them, but mostly for the guy who was desperate enough and couldn’t find any other way around his situation. I don’t have much money but I certainly would have tried to help him!

    My heart goes to the cashier who offerred the robber
    $40.00 out of his own pocket. My heart also goes to
    the desparate robber. I don’t believe for a minute that
    he would have shot the clerk.

    Desperation is NOT funny! this guy is not your typical convenience store robber, seen too many “regular” videos of them…..sad commentary on the times when it comes to this

    Saw this on TV last week. I think the robber was sincere about having hungary kids and bills to pay but that does not make it legal. Who will feed his kids while he is in jail? Right, WELFARE! Taxpayers money.
