Heard this one on my scanner. The attendant was smart enough not to panic and got a license palte number. Where are this mid's parents when he is pulling stuff like thgis. He should lose his license on top of whatever else happens.

"...lose his license..". How about 25 years in prison ! How soon before we hear from the "we were all kids once" crowd ?

No excuses..if convicted 25 years in the slammer.

25 years sounds about right for armed robbery - what a waste over probable 25 bucks in gas. most likely get a year for each gallon lol
they should start charging these kids folks with the crimes as well and maybe parents would step up

We all know the little doofus is not going to get 25 years - not in this state with all of the liberal judges. Adding the loss of a license might slow them down a little after they get out though.( I hope)

Like most criminals I'm sure this kid is really nice and merely misunderstood.

I mean we were all young once and did crazy things. We ALL robbed people. There ain't nothin for kids to do so they rob people.

Just kidding of course.

This guy actually said to the attendant, "Don't do anything stupid"? It's too bad only criminals have guns in this state. If this was in NH the attendant would have probably took out a hand gun and shot him in the face. But your all right, for this crime should be no less then 20 years it's holding up a gas station, could have been your son or daughter working there right? but then again in this state crime pays excellent! You can even kill someone with your car and only get 3 years probation! What a deal, Attention Criminals!! Come on in to Mass, rob a gas station with a gun, run someone over, we have a special on probation jail free time! Here in mass, we love to let you walk.

Guns are meant for protection from the "Idiots". Proper gun law enforcement is what is needed. Yet, we all know how this will turn out; no jail time, no restitution. The real idiots are wearing long black robes.

To "the real idiots" list add the liberal democrats in Massachusetts that select our judges.

Everybody know that Massachusetts is a liberal state with activist liberal judges.

Barney Frank takes care of the tea-bagging for this state.

"like the rest of us"...speak for yourself. I never robbed anyone. If tapes can prove he had a gun let him do the 15 years. One more criminal off the streets.
