Smitty's Focus Of Robbery

Originally uploaded by lunchmeat.
As silent as the media has been about this, I figured I should report that Smitty's -- a local watering hole on Grand Avenue -- was the focus of a robbery two weeks ago on Tuesday.

My good friend who owns an establishment on Grand Avenue told me that just before closing two people walked in with guns and held up the patrons, while a third person was behind the wheel of the car. To my knoweldge, they are still at large.

I've not been to Smitty's in a long time -- over a year at least, I guess. But given occurences like that one, it makes you wonder if it's a good time to start going. I think I'll stick to home movies.

Just kidding. Actually more people out should deter crime, right?

It's best for all to be watchful and observant as there have been a large number of robberies and assaults along Grand Avenue.

Why all of this is happening, in my view, is due to a large class of underemployed -- not unemployed -- people. They aren't making enough to pay the rent or utilities and so some resort to terrible acts like the one I'm reporting.
