Thorns to the convenience store on Salem's main street getting robbed by a knife-wielder. Again. Gosh, do you think these kind of crimes are prompted by compulsions to feed drug habits at any cost or risk? It is only going to get worse. At some point someone will get killed. Thorns to a loaded handgun allegedly being pointed at someone in a popular city nightclub. Knowing you were sitting next to a gun-toter in a bar would knock the bloom off of a fun evening, wouldn't it? Charges are pending.
