They will probably never catch the perp. This is right near I84 and the perp probably got off the highway to target this shopping center, then right back on the highway.

Armed Robbery in Southbury?? Dont see that too often except a few years ago when some idiot took a gun into Mobil off exit 16 and stuck the store up than ran into the woods. we had police dogs/helicopters flying all over our fields/woods trying to find the guy... Ends up he got caught a few weeks later when the guys own mother recognized his face from the servaliance tape and turned him in. He didnt even have a real gun. lol.

You should be ashamed of yourself. Officer Rodriguez served our country in Afghanistan. Have you put your life on the line for our country?? If so, thank you! Don't be so quick to judge and God Bless You.

How doe’s the press and police expect people who might have seen the robber, before or after the attack to realize it and come forward if they don’t offer a description of the thug?

Have you ever heard of tact?

You nameless faceless blogger are a piece of dung. Regardless of your intent there is no way to justify your words.

Remember to wash behind your ears when you remove your head from your backside.

I take it you're new around here... see, in Danbury, it's commonplace for people to assume that ANYONE with an ethnic last name is ILLEGAL and therefore, they shout DEPORT. Go f yourself buddy, you have no clue who I am or what I was referring to. Funny, I don't see a face on your profile either...

Tact: a keen sense of what to do or say in order to maintain good relations with others or avoid offense

You can mask it as a joke but it is simply racist. I have been in this area over a decade and know that bigots like yourself are a dime a dozen. WHO? Don't be a pawn to the whims of society and develop an original thought.

Again this Police officer who you felt it was appropriate to make a target of your racist "funny" is a veteran of the War in Afghanistan. He has done more than enough to not have some punk clown make racist jokes about his sir name on a News Times Blog.

It is your responsibility to not be a POS. You have proven incapable of filtering yourself. So I am helping you realize how your words of hate effect others.

NICK- It was NOT 'words of hate'. I was poking fun at those that jump to conclusions and DO HATE. Such a whiner you are...

Reading comprehension is a wonderful skill to have in life. Since you did not retain this the first or second time I will re-post the definition of tact for you.

Tact: a keen sense of what to do or say in order to maintain good relations with others or avoid offense.

Your only reasonable course for this would be to apologize for writing before you think. Instead you continue to defend your asinine comments.

If holding you accountable for your words is whining, send me a box of tissues.

Ask Geraldine Ferraro about intent and perception.

A racist Joke with a tag line of “just kidding :)” is still a racist joke. You need to deal with the fact that the first thing that came into your mind upon reading this article was to take a racist bigoted shot at the police officer investigating this crime.

Words to live by “You can’t shake hands with the devil and say your only kidding.”

is it tactful to tell someone to remove their head from their backside? I'm confused as to what right Nick has to speak about tact.

"You nameless faceless blogger are a piece of dung."- It's a good thing I'm a huge fan of irony :)

what about this kind of crime happening in our little town? supermarkets and gas station parking lots should have lots of video cameras to identify these people.
