ATLANTA —

An armed robbery suspect is in custody after police say he tried to rob a donut shop in southwest Atlanta.

The incident happened at the Dunkin' Donuts near the intersection of Ralph D Abernathy Boulevard SW and Cascade Avenue SW just before 10 p.m. Saturday.

Police told Channel 2 that while the man was trying to rob the shop, a police officer arrived at the scene. The suspect tried to flee, but was shot in the arm by the officer, police said.

Following the shooting, the man jumped into a car, but crashed two blocks away from the scene. He was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital and is listed in stable condition.

What are the odds?

Some robbers are idiots.

What’s safer to rob, the U.S. Treasury or a doughnut shop?

These headlines are getting more and more outrageous. How about this one: Man shoots alien at truckstop while putting on chains, alien gets caught in chains and flies off with truck. I could swear this happened last week in Yakima.

We both know the answer - with the latter, the cops take it personally.

Oops. Dunkin’ Donuts. If it WAS KK the guy would have been shot multiple times with every weapon the cops had in the car.

Robs a donut store. [facepalm] THAT has to go in the stupid crook files. He’d have had better luck actually robbing the cop shop.

But for extra points, after he shot the guy, did he catch the donut?

He tried to rob a DD on Ralph Abernathy Blvd. What a sad commentary that streets named after notable Black people mostly run through “less than desirable” areas. I lived in Spring Valley, NY and there’s an MLK and Harriet Tubman Blvd. in the worst part of town.

Yup, anytime my GPS tells me to turn on an MLK Blvd, I can’t help but think twice, even in broad daylight.

I’m guessing the robber was unaware the police had shot the donut shop when he decided to rob it.

Go to any city in America. Look at their MLK Blvd and tell me it’s a street you want to shop or spend time on. Same for “Abernathy”.

Trying to get traffic straightened out before a Nationals game, two members of the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department were directing traffic in semi-dark conditions, while wearing their very dark blue uniforms. I saw one police “officer” direct traffic such that one car would have run over the second distinguished /sarc/ member of the force if not for the better judgment of the driver.
