What a cowardly act. Is this the trend now; robbing hard working people whose only means of transportation is the bus? How much do they think these people have on them? It is hard enough getting to and from work, now they have to worry about just making it home with their lives intact. I am praying these assailants are taken off the streets right away. I believe that now is the time for neighborhoods to come together and join up with Law Enforcement to combat what is very fast becoming an epidemic. I can't believe that with all the businesses on that corner no one had a surveilance camera. Maybe this should be considered by a lot of people in their respective neighborhoods. People waiting at thr bus stop are particularly vulnerable, especially early in the morning.People have to get to work. How are they going to be protected? This unfortunate event leaves a lot of unanswered questions that need to be answered now. My deepest condolences to the Dix family. I am praying for you to get some satisfaction out of this ordeal if it only means that this person is found immediately. This was a senseless act by a senseless individual.
