    Do these clerks have any weapons behind the counter at all? A sawed off 4/10 would make a great deterrent.

    I thought there was a sign on the door proclaiming NO HOODIES? I agree with police that the signs are a good idea and most robbers probably think twice since they have been displayed.

    So is it just a matter of asking for money with a mean sounding voice and the robber will get the money . Do they not need a weapon or anything like that?

      i agree nothing said about a weapon. must be her looks that scared the clerk. this sign of no hoodies is a joke. i am sure the creep dishonest crook that is going to steal from you will be honest and obey the sign as they would not want to break the law now would they lol?
