oh this is just terrible. It should matter not the quality of an establishment…. stealing is NOT ok.


That liquor store is shite anyway. Piss poor selection, overpriced, and they don’t refrigerate overnight. In the summer. Good luck with your crappy fermented vinegar wine.


What does it have to due with being robbed if you do not like there selections & refrigeration that’s 1 Thing but nothing to do with being robbed just a fact SMH


Overcoat in July? Very suspicious. Lets hope he wasn’t hiding a rifle. Didn’t anybody watch Beverly Hills Cop II?


Winter trench coat / jacket in this heat? Baseball cap pulled low just over the eyes? This image serves as a poster child for bringing back STOP & FRISK!! If I were a cop, I’d want to stop this man ASAP. Not allowed anymore.


Anonymous – You are incorrect. Go educate yourself on the topic. They could stop this guy on suspicion alone let alone “stop and frisk”.


Scroll through the sunnyside post all the way to it’s beginning you will see who is causing trouble and who isn’t there is nothing racist about it.
