Now that we know what the car looks like I guess it would be nice to also know what the two perps look like. I can guess.
Sounds like a Home Boy drug buy gone bad.
Two Amish youth in a dispute over claw hammers... is my guess.
“I can guess.”
Oh, those Amish and their hijinks!
No perp description? License plate?
A SAFER WAL-MART BY MOTHERS DAY
Read the full report
As part of a new national grassroots campaign to make Wal-Mart safer, we are calling on Wal-Mart to improve security at all its stores by Mothers Day. With millions of consumers shopping at Wal-Mart 70% of them women its time Wal-Mart did the right thing and made sure Wal-Mart stores are safe as they can be.
Crime in our parking lots was on a rapid increase in many areas of region ten, Florida, and it was evident from customer count and sales in the evening hours, that people were becoming afraid to visit our stores during those hours.
Tom Rinehart, Wal-Mart, 1996
For years, public reports have chronicled the terrible problem of crimes at Wal-Mart stores. Horrific reports of rape, murder, kidnappings, robbery and assault at Wal-Mart stores. For many police officials, the issue of crimes at Wal-Mart stores has been overwhelming:
In South Strabane, PA: Police Chief Don Zofchak met with Wal-Mart officials in 2004 trying to reduce their calls to the police. “Frankly, it was unbearable . I’ve got 26 square miles and God knows how many other businesses to deal with. Their requests or demands for service, proportionally, were overwhelming.” [Pittsburgh Post Gazette, March 27, 2005]
North Lebanon, PA: Police Chief Kim Wolfe said that, “If we had known the number of calls [from Wal-Mart], we probably would have considered an increase in officers . We just had no idea what it would be like. It doesn’t matter what time of the day or night; we get calls there.” [The Lebanon Daily News, January 27, 2005]
Our full report contains more quotes from police officials.
“a quick search of reported cases reveals that Wal-Mart parking lots are a virtual magnet for crime.” *
Judge L. Starcher, 2001
Now, a new study of official police reports proves how serious the issue crime of crime at Wal-Mart stores still is for many towns and cities across America. The shocking new report, titled Is Your Wal-Mart Safe? is first national study to analyze official police reports of incidents at 551 Wal-Mart stores, as well as compare rates of criminal/police incidents at Wal-Mart and Target stores.
Among the findings of the Is Your Wal-Mart Safe study are:
* Wal-Mart stores analyzed do experience a high rate of criminal/police incidents;
* Based on a sample of high incident Wal-Mart stores, Wal-Mart stores experience a much higher rate of reported criminal/police incidents than nearby Target stores;
* National estimates indicate that almost 1 million criminal/police incidents occurred at Wal-Mart stores in 2004 or 2 criminal/police incidents per minute in 2004;
* Wal-Mart could implement roving security patrols at all stores nation-wide at an estimated cost of 4 cents a customer visit.

Wal-Mart parking lots are hotbeds of criminal activity. Type in your zip code and see what’s been going on at a Wal-Mart near you.
By the way, I shop at Wal-Mart a lot but know to be very aware of what is going on around me in their parking lot.
> No perp description?
Haven’t seen one.
Probably just a couple of people arguing over Col. Reb.
Definitely have my radar fully engaged if I find myself in the neighborhood.
How'd you guess?
