Maybe it would look better liked this, JA#####

Philadelphia police are warning workers at gas stations -- especially Sunoco stations -- that they may be targets for criminals.

Police don't dismiss the idea that has fuel prices rise and there's more cash being spent, that gas stations are more profitable targets for crime.

Since May, several Sunoco stations and their "A+ Mini Markets" have been hit in the lower Northeast and along Wissahickon Avenue.

Lt. Frank Vanore of the Philadelphia Police Department says two black men in their late teens or early 20s, wearing black Converse "Chuck Taylor" sneakers, were caught on tape during at least one stickup:

"(One) produces a handgun, announces a robbery, and demands money from the employee at the Sunoco A+. In many of these cases several hundred dollars was taken; in one case back in May, up to $14,000 was taken in the robbery."

If you know anything about the robberies, call 215-686-TIPS. You can remain anonymous.

Sorry folks but I got no problem with Tyrone, Jamal, Rasheed and Bubba strongarming all of these overpriced gas stations. 95% of them are run by freakin foreigners who pretend they can't understand English (but you can be darn sure they do!) and they act and talk in their own language while they operate their rigged gas pumps that short-change you 10-15 cents per gallon at every fillup. It would be different if "Pahrook Patel" and his greasy curry-eating cousins from India and Pakistan were doing honest business but as most of them ain't I ain't gots no sympthay when one of "da brothas" takes them for $12 grand in cash. Like it or not dat's the way it be.
