The point is inquire, no robbery took place! A theft? yes! Vandalism? yes!
Burglary? maybe, but there was no robbery.
As for screening and supervision of employees go? I fail to see what, if anything, that might have to do with this particular situation? This individual was contracted to clean the place. Which means he was not a direct employee of the facility. He doesn't appear to have a criminal history. The same could have taken place at BC/BST or any facility downtown or elsewhere who contacts with outside cleaning crews, and some inside workers as well. Hell! Look at the front page story of the graysville police chief accused of stealing 4 grand off a citizen and pocketing the cash. Fired then rehired. There are crooks and there crooks, and it won't necessarily show up during any screening process. And even when something dies, past behavior doesn't necessarily determine or predict present behavior. A person with no criminal history can turn out to be a potential serial killer, and a person who's had a few runns with the law can turn out to be the most honest/trustworthy person an employer could hire.
Here's something I've noticed about local police reports and how their written up often determine how they will be adjudicated in court. Like the case of Chattanooga's own budding lil ted Bundy written up as an assault and patronizing a prostitute instead of attempting first degree murder or assault with a deadly weapon.
And what became of the case of Chattanooga's very own potential budding lil ted Bundy wannabe? All charges dismissed!
Inquire/ a robbery indicates some type of weapon was used against potential victims. This was a case of theft made to look like a break in by vandalism. There was no robbery. Robbery is when someone enters a bank, store, home and hold victims at gunpoint or some other form of weapon used to scare and intimidate. Poor choice of words here by Clark. Just like right wing media and the Ferguson police chief tried to label a case of allege shoplifting wi. e assault a strong armed robbery. Such strong terms are used to inspire certain images in the minds of some who are easily influenced by words.
I can recall an incident locally where a man had used a hammer to beat a prostitute and rob her. He even compared himself to ted Bundy, and having a certain admiration to him. But what was he charged with? Some kind of simple assault charge and patronizing a prostitute. Anyyone else would have been charged with attempted first degree murder, but he was apparently some yuppie Iocal with family likely with connections. No one even remotely thought to investigate him further to see if he may have had any ties to a few other dead prostitutes found around the city at various times.
See how words inspire certain images? A potential budding serial killer right in plain sight gets to walk away with a simple assault charge or something, and a theft and vandalism is called a robbery.
Ted Bundy devotee goes to grand jury

Libdem would Iove to see cops bring out the heavy duty artillery, such tanks drones, machine guns and rocket launchers to blast away a 9 year old holding an Uzi. Bet that'll really turn'im on and cause a massive orgasim for ya'.
Actually, immigrants flee to the U.S. because we've flooded their countries with weapons so destabilized the region that they've been forced to flee.
And the few individuals who might have sold their foostamps did so to pay an important utility bill about to be shut off, such as heat or lghts, or to keep from being evicted and keep a roof over their children's heads.
And no!* I don't use food stamps, before anyone tries to go there. I once worked at a children and family services agency where I handled the bulk of their case loads.
A robbery Mr. Clark? Are we using words to manipulate ? Wasn't it more a theft and case of vandalism ? The latter made to fabricate the appearance of a break in? And you have the audacity to place the title
Dr. by your name. shame on you!*
It would be near impossible for someone to buy non allowed food items on a food stamp card, as store registers are now computerized and designed to automatically separate non-food items from food items. Anyone using a food stamp card the register would automatically divide the food and non food items, and the person would have to pay for the non food item in cash. This piece is terrbly flawed and deceptive.
It's always interesting to note too, that some of the same people attacking food stamp recipients think nothing of getting their monthly SSI check for their disabled or autistic child.
Conservy, you might find it interesting to note that within that 50,000,000 many of those recipients are serving in the military, whose salaries are so low that they qualify for food stamp assistance. In fact, over 90% of the population that qualify for food stamp assistance work fulltime jobs. Some work more than one fulltime job.
What does a 9 year being taught to fire an Uzi have to do with making police vulnerable? From some of the cop forums I've been read, even I locally, they're the NRAs staunches supporters and would support the 9 year old right to bear arms anyway. On many of those forums there was not one who didn't support George Zimmerman, even offering to donate money in their support of him and encouraging others to do the same.
Where as common sense people see this as an avoidable tragedy and that an Uzi has no place in the hands of a 9 year old, gun supporters see this as a positive step and opportunity to prove that the gun did what it was designed to do, but fail to see the tragic irony.
Another thing, the militarization of police is a worldwide global plan used more often against innocent unarmed protesters, exercising free speech and right to assemble than to thwart any manufactured terrorist attacks, as being peddled to the public to keep uz all safe 'n secure.
