  1. Wow! Times are really tough. Now the pimps are even resorting to robbery to make up for the recession cash flow.

  2. I think he should be stealing clothes instead of jewelry. His wardrobe needs an update. Didn't Miami Vice go off the air two decades ago?

  3. My ex told me something years ago: Be observant of those around you; very appropos now that the holiday shopping season is coming up. A man or woman who are criminals and have an intention of commiting a crime can be dressed to the 9's but their demeanor is a little off from most people. Don't let the nice clothes fool you. A tip off is - look at their shoes. Chances are they paid a lot of attention to their clothes to throw people off, like this guy did, but not their shoes. They forget the shoes. The shoes will be dirty, worn and not in good condition. People who dress nice also include shoes to complete the look. Criminals do not.
