Oh Mr. Peabody------------ turn on the wayback machine! I am not entirely sure when I want you to set the dial to, that remains the only problem. I'd ask Sherman, but we all know that boy only gets us into trouble!
Why the wayback machine? I'm weary today I guess. Sad and weary. At a local Starbucks in a neighboring town two average looking white late teens came in for a latte. Happens everyday. Except the boychild decided to steal the tip jar. The TIP JAR for pete's sake! When a man, a well respected member of the community tried to do the right thing and pursue the kids, they ran him over in their car and killed him. I do not believe for one moment that when he woke up he thought that would be the last time he saw his home, his friends, his family. That he would die for doing the right thing. I also don't believe that the kids thought past coffee. Why in the world would you be motivated to steal a tip jar (they got less than five dollars) and then KILL someone?
Two suspects in a Starbucks robbery, which resulted in the death of a Good Samaritan, are in police custody.
From the local news affiliate:
Crestwood police said the suspects are from an Atlanta suburb and have been staying at hotels in the St. Louis area. Officers arrested them in St. Louis.
Prosecutors have not filed any charges in the case.
Officers released surveillance video of the supsects earlier in the week hoping the public could help them track down the suspects.
Police said a woman walked into a Starbucks store on Watson Road and bought coffee Monday. After she walked out, the man she was with, stole the tip jar and ran out of the store.
Roger Kreutz, a customer at the store, ran after the man. The male suspect hit Kreutz with the getaway car. Kreutz died Wednesday from his injuries.
Police said the manager of the store believed there was only about $5 in the tip jar.
So you see.............. I'm weary of so much of this sadness, so much of this blatant disregard for life.
We need cookies, we need milk. We need hugs and handmade goodness. I agree with Eckhart Tolle, we ARE all collectively part of the entire human condition, certainly we can turn around this mess. It is all about the love, certainly the love can cure us?
Can't it Mr. Peabody?
