It happened at the Subway restaurant, 3200 N. Rock,
around 11 a.m. Monday. Police said two teenagers, 15 and 16-year-old
boys, walked into the building with their hands in their pockets,
ordering everyone on the floor.
One of the suspects started
counting people on the floor, while two other teenagers ran out of the
restaurant, police said. The third teenager ran away a short time later.
No one was hurt.
Assuming this is a prank. Talk about a quick way to end up with extra holes god didn’t intend for you to have. Is there some type of idiot game going on that is under the radar? Just late last week there was the incident of the kid trying to rob a police station as a “prank”.
Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three or more times is enemy action. Thing is, I don’t believe in coincidence. How this appears is: rob some place, when you get caught, claim it was just a prank. Too bad the judge most likely isn’t going to care and neither will the prosecutor.
Lucky doesn’t even begin to describe the situation for those kids. They were trying to appear as they were armed and if anyone had decided to react, they could easily be dead. At no fault of the person who was defending themselves.
Seriously, what happened to the bucked of water balanced on the door? When did robbing people become a “prank”? When the hell did our youth become so monumentally stupid?
