Just a very sad, and yes, unfortunately more common crime that is echoed throughout all communities; most certainly this robbery is a sign of the times and a preview of the worse that is to come. Can't say I believe, in any way, that this crime was "inside" in any way. More likely, this new esablishment owned by the same owner of the mobils (rt.6 lake mohegan / rt. 202 ? Yorktown...just b4 Taconic Pkwy ent.) was cased by these two men for their planned robbery after the two noticed the existence of the new BP. This makes me believe the two (or at least one) are/is local enough to know the place was new and was comfortable enough with the neighborhood to flee on foot. Many changes are being made at all of this above mentioned owners' businesses to increase the security measures, significantly decrease police response time, and actually leave the decision in the hands of the employee as to whether or not the approaching person will or will not be allowed to enter via a perpetually locked door system that requires employee "buzzing" in each customer. With all that said and fact, no, despite any "fishy" feelings, this was not an inside job. Hoping and praying for GODspeed healing of the "pistol whipped" employee. Side note: didn't know the "tool" that wrote/published the "list" in the JN had a pistol permit in NYC!!! Thank you for this info .... hypocritical "tool"! Lastly, got a chuckle outta the "ban hoodies" comment ...

Thanks ED...It also might be a good idea to ban subway trains in NYC as there have quite a few subway train killings as of late

Shar ... you are killing me today with jokes!! Lol! In all seriousness, sadly again, this very poorly informed woman allegedly hates all hindus because they "blew up 9/11"...yeah, I know ... someone tell this psycho that #1. Terrorists were of the islamic faith, not hindu, and 2. Regardless!! Even if this nut was better informed, it doesn't justify shoving someone into/under a subway! SMH! Now, if he was wearing a hoodie ....
