Danny Glover?

And came away with $750 in negotiable property?

If they were influenced by Call of Duty, they would've shot everyone within a 2 block radius with their AK-47 Assault Hand Cannons.

6 guys with a pistol each is heavily armed?

Do American black men even play videogames?

Serious question, keep your racist pointing finger up your noses.
 
2012-12-28 04:52:45 PM  
I don't know. Given what anti-video-game propaganda has told me...

Anyone who plays video games has basically been in a "murder simulator" and the military even uses Quake to train soldiers. So obviously anyone who works at a game store is pretty much equivalent to the best spec ops soldiers out there.

...or is subby suggesting that six heavily armed soldiers is not enough?

The suspects were last seen running down the street while intermittently hopping up and down.

Like the Homeless SF guy with an arsenal in his car.

An arsenal worth maybe $120. $20 at Rick's Pawn Shop. I don't think he had any ammo.

SF Comical made it sound like he was better geared than the 10th Mountain Division...

How many teabaggings?

And you're splitting up your loot 6 ways? Yeah, good thinking. No way two guys could have pulled that off.

Copies of Battletoads are in short supply. I've been calling around to all the Game Stops in the tri-state area, and they always say they're out. Based off how mad the store employees are when they say this, I think they're lying. That's why I keep calling back and asking again.

I can't blame these guys for taking the strong arm approach.

They should have waited till the night of the 23rd or 24th when they would have had thousands in cash in the registers.

If six guys pulled pistols on me, they would look pretty heavily armed from my point of view...

Not racist? Then why are you assuming that the robbers are black?
 
2012-12-28 05:13:51 PM  
According to the media it should have taken more then 6 to attack an elite violent gamer like a gamestop employee, this doesn't jive.

According to the slurs you'll hear 12 year olds screaming over the games, there are a lot of black men playing.

Say what you will, people who play D&D never do this.
 
2012-12-28 05:17:01 PM  
Why is CCTV footage still so lo-res? Seriously, you'd think that 30 years later we'd at least have HD recording set up.

When I did expense reporting for Gamestop, about once a month or so there would be the expense report of the person who was involved in a store robbery who was expensing the cellphone that was stolen. No matter how much the phones cost, Gamestop only covers $200. Even if the receipt attached to the expense report was like $400, the company over covered $200.

One woman had her iPhone, wallet and car stolen and she was beaten during the robbery. The car was recovered and she submitted an expense report for the new phone, the impound fees and some expenses related to the injuries. All Gamestop would cover was the $200 for the phone. Other remainder of the iPhone, along with the nearly $1,000 related to the car, Gamestop refused to cover.

Came here to say this. Six targets is a light day for today's monstrous video gamers. Must have been an inside job.

Guess the NRA was right, video games due cause violence. Now if we armed and trained game stop employees things would be better

But DnD teaches you real magic you can use to brainwash your parents in to buying you things and causes you to completely turn your back on friends whose characters die in campaigns...

This is the reason I stopped playing Pong.

I hate COD it is the worst game ever except for maybe MW3. The netcode is so terrible, it just randomly picks who gets to own everybody else and they have done a good job covering it up but the killcam shows the truth. What ever happened to good shooting games where you had to think? Now it's just kids running around with xray mods aimbots and golden shotguns or dual wield smgs slaughtering everyone. My kid likes it though.

As far as the story goes, this does look like it was a Black Op.

Yes, they do, unless a shiat-ton of people on Xbox Live are lying in their profiles and speaking curiously fluent American black vernacular.

I thought that the team was worth a bit more than that.

Considering you probably could do it with 6 guys sans weapons, yes.
 
2012-12-28 06:28:46 PM  
They stole $700 worth of games and accessories. Gamestop offered them $12 to give it all back.
 
2012-12-28 06:47:56 PM  
You are not going to get enough loot out of a Gamestop to split six ways and still be worth a damn. Idiots.
 
2012-12-28 06:48:33 PM  

Ohlookabutterfly: Do American black men even play videogames?


Yes. At least, the ones I know play lots of them. American black men are just men, as surprising as that may be to you.

They arnt going to split 6 ways. As soon as the op was over and they bounced their way to the rally point, someone turned around and shot their teammate.
 
2012-12-28 07:10:46 PM  
The amazing thing was that in a massive coincidence, all six men were independent robbers who just happened to pick the same day and time to go rob a GameStop.

The pic in the article was a tip off that at least one was.
