    • Hopefully someone that saw him trying to get away picked up a rock and threw it as he was fleeing. He is clearly unstable, he chased the poor staffer around the place with a big knife, scary, that’s off-balance for real. He needs to be off the streets for sure, if anyone knows who it is you are doing them a favour by helping. And in the end he doesn’t even get anything out of the robbery.
      Meth/Heroin/fentynal – it’s a hell of a drug.
      I just thank god when I was young, hard drugs like that weren’t ever at our disposal.
