Dublin Safeway robbed, third pharmacy holdup attempt in two days

Original post made on Dec 14, 2012

Safeway in Dublin was locked down for about an hour Thursday afternoon, from about 12:40 to 1:40 p.m., after the pharmacy was robbed, witnesses said. A Salvation Army volunteer outside the store said police told her to move her kettle and stay away from windows during the lockdown.

I wondered why the Salvation Army kettle was inside of Penny's Stoneridge,maybe the S.A. bell ringers should be packing heat.

I'm sorry your mind works that way for you.
I am really sorry that you decided to share it with us.
May you find peace in there soon...before you share it again.

@steve... "tis the season of Obama"? Seriously, what in the hell does Obama have to do with tweakers robbing pharmacies? Good lord, I think you've been spending too much time watching Faux News, and too little time thinking for yourself. Believe it or not, most of the evils in the world existed long before Obama, crazy concept I know, but its true. The desperation and anger of the rightwingers is almost palpable, next they'll be blaming the extincting of the dinosaurs on Obama.

It's not strictly Obama, but it is due largely to the left wing loons because they are:
- Soft on crime (especially a problem because lawyers, and hence judges, are mostly left wing loons
- Soft on discipline, we have a whole generation of kids now that were raised by left wing loons who don't value discipline. Their kids grow up as tyrants.
- Soft on drugs - loons love their drugs whether its pot, crack, meth or heroin. A very high percentage of these shooter whack jobs are drug users.
- Protective of mental cases - loons make it near impossible to report whack jobs to authorities

Sure hope the robberies keep to the "No real gun" motto. I'd hate to hear someone got shot. Remember to pay attention when getting out of your car and on the way to your car from shopping. Day or night, it doesn't matter. Be aware and have your keys out before you leave the safety of the stores, even when grocery shopping ~

And good thing Alameda County Sheriff strictly enforces no concealed carry for law abiding citizens. The criminals need every advantage. And why describe the perp without the race? Given the drugs were what they were, I'd guess Caucasian this time - but given the fact that they didn't mention it - I'm guessing it's a "protected" minority (e.g., blacks and Mexicans).
