Is this store employee retarded? This nut comes in with a gun, sweating like crazy, and demands a tux "right now" for the coming emporer's reign... and she waits FIFTY MINUTES to call the police. Licky for her there is no crime of felony stupid, or she would be off to prison...
LOL, this made me laugh. Actually, she is only a half-tard because she did eventually call and was smart enough not to publish her name. Thank goodness no one else was hurt for her lack of common sense. Wow!

This girl likely feared for her life and felt that the best thing to do was to proceed with the transaction. I don't know how you people can criticize her for that. I think it's ridiculous. Who knows what this guy would've done to her if he found out she was calling the police during the rental.

It probably took the cops that long to get there. This would probably be a low priority call for them.

Dude, it's Northglenn. Not the buzzing crime metropolis where they'd have something higher on the priority list. Unless you count graffiti.

I like how some people can make fun of that employee, when in fact they were not there, and were not in her shoes, don't know what is going on at the time, so until you find yourself in that situation maybe it is better that a person should think before they open their mouths.

before I begin my shift this morning I wanted to comment on yesterdays incident in the hopes that reason will rule the security debate. The security in place worked. No one was hurt other than the gunman. To increase security will only put the public at a greater risk. Had there been a metal detector in place, the man may have started shooting his way in at the enterance instead of waiting until the State Patrol was close by. I do not fear working in the Capital Annex, despite the incident yesterday or others I am aware of that happened here with taxpayers. I do fear the Government treading on my Freedoms.

The federal governemnt has repeatedly put into place laws that do more to restrict and inconvenience the public than truly reduce crime. Please do not make the same mistake in our Great State of Colorado!

WOW, why are you trying to make this a racial issue? Who...WHO said they feel sorry for the gunman???

O.K., a guy comes in to your store, is armed with a gun and a knife, looks and sounds like he's about to go postal, gives you 15 minutes to alter the suit (I doubt the sewing machine was at the front desk), and you can't find time to call 911?? You would be criticized too! Explain that to the family of any innocent people that could have been killed!

This is NOT a racial story. Nobody feels sorry for the "White Guy". The gunman could have been stopped before anything bad happened if the employee had a clue!

Until you're in that situation...DON'T JUDGE!

does the color of his skin have anything to do with carrying a gun in to the capitol? He could have been pink or blue for all i care what he did is wrong on the highest levels. The fact that the story says he is white is just the stupid media playing on social fears of race and i hate that. WOW and Hmmm are falling right into this media trap of racism who cares what he looks like, i clicked this story because of "gunman in capitol" not "WHITE (or black for that matter) gunman in capitol. I guess i just hate when the problems of society come down to race. Thanks for letting me voice my 2 cents.
