In Obama's America the thieves are so poor they can't even fork out enough dough for a knife.

ok, look. i understand reporting errors happen from time to time. it's bound to happen, even to the most diligent reporter. that said, this article is so full of complete crap i can't believe they get away with publishing it. for the sake of giving you some facts, i'll examine the article further

HEMPFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Police reported a bizarre gas station robbery in Westmoreland County Tuesday night.
i won't argue that
According to police, Gino Conti, 31, walked into the Shell gas station on Route 30 in Hempfield Township and asked for a box of cigarettes.
no, he didn't
When the clerk turned around, police said Conti pulled out a fork and demanded money.
no, he didn't
Police said there was no money in the cash register, so Conti grabbed the cigarettes and left.
no, he didn't
Police caught up with Conti a short time later. He faces several charges including robbery and simple assault.
No one was hurt when Conti pulled the fork out.
conti never had a farking fork! gah! the stupid, it burns

here's what happened. monday evening, gino conti went into the store with a gun and demanded cash. he got away with $150, but since he was a regular customer there, the cops caught up with him a short time later. here's his mugshot:

then, tuesday evening, matthew goodwin walked into the same store with a fork, demanded cash he didn't get, and got away with a pack of smokes. the now 'veteran-at-being-robbed' clerk got his license plate number and called the cops, who arrested him a short time later. here's his mugshot:

I once knew someone who went to juvie for robbing a gas station with a cake server. He claimed it was a joke, but he got 2 years for it.

Fark with a fork? That sounds painful

So do you use a salad fork or a dinner fork on a convenience store clerk?
What's the etiquette here?

/I think a spork would be more appropriate
 
2010-01-28 02:09:16 PM
I knew there's a reason Megain made my favorites list.

Actually, it was just for providing the mugshots/Facebook links of those involved, but DAMN you took the cake with this one! Good jorb.

The perp had displayed a similar criminal pattern before. So much so that the police had him on their registry.
 
2010-01-28 02:25:42 PM
Well at least he didn't use a spoon.

Most Canadian story ever.....

I was working at a Canadian Tire Gas Bar when a guy came in and waved a hockey stick at me, demanding money. I had just put all the bills in the safe, so he demanded the loonies and toonies out of the cash drawer.

I told him no, and the get out of the store. So he said he'd take the Canadian Tire money and leave. I just picked up the phone and dialed 911, while he stood there. They arrested him down the street.

Oh Canada!
