It sure seems obvious that he went over and shot the '2' clerks because the other one wouldn't let him in. Like a kid, OK, you won't let me in to rob and kill you - I'll just go blow away your co-workers.

When in the world are you people going to figure this out.We already know what is going to happen when and if they catch them.Trial??? No trail needed.KILL THEM,JUST PLAIN AND SIMPLE KILL THEM.The problem with todays world is we catch them,put them in jail,give them a trail,maybe put them on death row.It's all the same.We build new NICE,AIRCONDITIONED prison's then we feed them the rest of their days.WE PAY,PAY AND PAY some more.The innocent victims and their familys will pay for the rest of their lifes and still pay for this scum bag to keep on living.!!! Does anybody out there get it?? All of you tree huggers out there are to blame for what is happening to this world.Yes I know by now all of you are wondering what kind of person would write something like this.Well I am a grandmother of 6 and no I am not crazy.Just being honest.Why do they deserve a trail?? That is what I would like someone to answer.An eye for an eye and some of this crap would stop.Well you know why it won't .Because our government has a system that keeps them in business.Yes the prison system is a VERY PROFITABLE BUISINESS FOR THEM.AND WE ARE THE ONES PAYING.Why do we need all of these people that are caught red handed and we KNOW for sure they commited the crime and put them in prison.Yes I know we have many that have been proven to be innocent.I am talking about the ones that we KNOW are guilty.Caught with cookie in hand.Get rid of them.Just my opinion.

Perhaps the people in the rent-to-own stores should revise their budgets and pass on the flat-screen TVs and fancy jewelry, so as to be better able to provide the basic staples for their families. Many of us are in tough financial straits, and this recession is just beginning; it is going to get a lot worse, yet I daresay that most of us would not resort to crime to provide for our families. Whether black, white, or whatever, when caught, these *astards should be fried or hung within 30 days, just like they did to Saddam Hussein. Never mind these appeals, with extended years of languishing on Death Row at taxpayers' expense. Our prison system is a joke, and Carol Dixon is absolutely correct; government--at all levels--has a vested interest in maintaining the madness. The prison system is a business, and, like any other business, they are in business to make money. Why do you think that there are so many "privatized" systems? Because they make money, and the government makes money off of them! Whatever your religious beliefs, pray for these poor victims and their families. They didn't deserve to be slaughtered like this.

Crimes are committed by criminals.

Criminals come in all colors, genders and sizes.

I guess I don't quite understand the comments about the "prison system". The prison system isn't the ones responsible for the "Judicial System". The prisons are only a holding facility for the Judicial System while they play their games. Think about it.....Lawyers, Judges, ACLU, District Courts of Appeal, etc. and I don't see any connection with the Tree Huggers as one person mentioned.

I was raised up in the '50s in the projects in Pittsburgh, rats, cockroaches, no money, beans & franks for Christmas dinner. I, nor my siblings, have a criminal record. And that was before food stamps,etc. which we would have never asked for anyway. Get real people. Folks driving late model SUV's with $600 pistols are in dire "economic circumstances". Thrill killings nothing more nothing less.

I feel for the families of these hard working men. They were just trying to make a living, like the rest of us.

I have no idea what makes us think it is an African American individual ... maybe it's because it's on TAPE or the fact that the surviving employee TOLD them the color of the person because HE saw the color of the skin when he came to the front door???? Take your pick.

Black, white, green, purple, they are all just colors. I agree minorities are more likely to commit crimes according to "reports" but all colors commit crimes. When someone dies, what does it matter that one race is more likely to commit a crime than another. Two people are dead because of another. The point is catch him and don't spend 20 years getting rid of him, which is what happens all over the country. Hopefully someone who knows him will turn him in for the reward.

Is this going to turn into another blog where whites and blacks bash each other? These two people were killed by a POS and the people in Nebraska were killed by a POS. The point is when are all people, black, white, asian, latino, going to stop putting up with these POS killers.

And the moron award goes to Justice who can neither spell correctly or resist the temptation to point a racial finger. Well stupid, when we stop making excuses for WHITE criminals then we can stop making excuses for black criminals. Got it?

Typical comment from someone living in fantasyland. You make the clerk responsible for the actions of the killer. When are you going to learn that no victim can ever be held responsible for the actions they take under extreme duress and fear of death?
If the clerk had let him in, there would be three dead people.
The only same comment here is that the criminals are not to be afforded any mercy and should be eliminated from the gene pool as soon as possible. I have more mercy for fire ants and mosquitoes.

I'm not sure about in CA., but here in Central Florida, our murderers are black males the vast majority of the time. That goes for the robbers too. However, you're right about all sizes.
