    ?? Why did Raymond Epps strangle the guy? Was there a motive or are we living among f***in lunatics?
    And as for not finding the robber-wannabe of GameStop? Shame on the precinct.

    As far as I know, there is only one (or maybe two?) pharamcies on Skillman, so why not use an undercover cop to nail them?

    I’ve lived here my whole life and the last pharmacy I remember on Skillman was on 46th & Skillman. Where is the other pharmacy?

    A pharmacy on Skillman was robbed several months ago by two individuals wearing masks. It is targeted because it is on an isolated, quiet street. Do not blame the pharmacist: he is a crime victim also. Obviously, some locals have tipped off the creeps in other boroughs to come over here to rob. I keep saying that we have some creepy druggy kids – do you believe me now?

    Raquel, I absolutely believe you. My friends and I were standing on the corner of 47th and Skillman the other evening, maybe around 9:00 when a teenager walked past us to a car that pulled up. The teenager copped some drugs and he and his two friends then went to a neighborhood bodega and got some beer. They then walked past us again arguing about who should hold the drugs. Besides being bold and really stupid, these kids seemed to live in the gardens area as that is where they were headed.

    Marilyn, I hope the police read this thread! Enough is enough. Thank you for your moral support.

    In re-reading the article it seems that the pharmacy on Skillman wasn’t robbed. The teens came to the pharmacy simply to get their prescriptions (which were robbed from somewhere else) filled and paid cash for them. The fact that the police said that the teens traveled from the Bronx to this particular pharmacy because “they had heard they could try this place” is VERY alarming. I can’t even get Benadryl because it’s locked up behind the counter in most pharmacies and requires my driver’s license. A prescription for a known street drug where the person pays in cash, and doesn’t go through insurance, should raise a huge red flag, shouldn’t it? Unless they’re in the business of dealing drugs for cash, that is. Great way to attract lowlifes to our area…

    This pharmacy – if it is the one I am thinking of – had been robbed in the fall by two people holding a knife and wearing masks. I suspect the owner must be terrified. He is not a young man. Of course, you have heard about some pharmacists in Long Island applying for gun licenses after the two shootouts that took place there. Working in a pharmacy has become a dangerous profession – even in Sunnyside. And “heard that they could try this place” – is it from the previous two robbers? Is it from our local low lives? I know that a couple of them have done armed robberies.

    it is dangerous to be a pharmacist. I also know who these punk kids are and I am baffled as to why the 108th seems to have so much trouble locking them up. They are notorious for robbing their friends and neighbors.
