    This happened 3 miles from my front door, 1 mile from my parents front door. :(

    Original story here
    The gas station that's about 30 yards from that McD's is the gas station I use most every day (night).

    Interesting. There's been a bunch of McDs robberies in the Portland area lately too.

    Sounds like another operative example of why citizens should CCW, yes? Glad no one was hurt.

    In high school, a friend of mine was robbed at gun point while working at a Taco Bell. Not a good experience especially for kids making minimum wage :cuss: Thank goodness no one was hurt.

    I wonder how many doughnut shops suffer armed robberies every year versus McDonalds.

    The only person old enough was probably the manager.

    A few years ago, a friend of mine from high school was killed in a McD's by Paul Dennis Reed along with 3 others dead and 1 injured. (Not to mention the people from Capt'n D's and Baskin Robin's that the same bumhug murdered. :fire: )

    The story just totally caught me off guard. I've lived in this town the better part of 14 years. This stuff doesn't happen here! (Of course, that's what everyone says, eh?)

    I'm just glad my HCP will be in my hands in the next 3 to 5 weeks.

    Retail business is one of the most dangerous b/c of the armed robberies. Cabbies and cops are also in high risk jobs.

    Probably an ex-employee too.
