    What happened to the perp?

    Is he still on the run?

    Time to form a citizen's posse and hunt his butt down.

    Well done on your part for teaching her this, and well done on her part for listening and utilizing what she learned.

    I don't have any kids, but I could just as easily substitute my mother or sister to try to wrap my head around how you were feeling. I'm glad this story ended the way it did.

    All the training in the world means nothing if the proper action is not taken when called for.

    She did great. Hope ya'll, as a family, can get away for a day or two and decompress.

    Thank God in heaven, and let us keep those not as fortunate in these situations in our prayers.

    Well done on all sides!

    This should be submitted to the Illinois "leadership" while they discuss CCW for law-abiding residents!!!!!!!!!!

    You should be very proud of your daughter!!!!!!!!


    Please do this - keep an 'eye' on her.

    My oldest daughter was robbed at gunpoint, where she used to work. (About 5-1/2 years ago. Just before Christmas.)

    She was fine, for a while.
    The sphincter muscle that robbed the Verizon store (she no longer works there, I don't care who knows the company name, now) stuck a semi-auto pistol into her mouth and racked the slide.

    I got a call after the sphincter muscle left and the sheriff's deputies were doing their investigation. (I knew some of the deputies, and a good friend called me.)

    My daughter wouldn't come out of the back room, until I got there.

    Two months later, she has her Maryland Concealed Carry Permit. (In Maryland, you must PROVE "apprehended danger"! She did!!! The robbery was on video tape!!!)

    Three months after the robbery, she started having problems sleeping. Then, problems eating.

    One year of therapy followed.

    Even though Verizon Wireless has a "No Weapons Policy" - Concealed means concealed.


    Please, keep 'an eye' on your daughter. Watch for signs of stress.

    I agree! What a way to start out on GT! The hairs on my neck stood up. Way to write that story!
