Has anyone else noticed a spike in armed robberies? Here on Cape Cod, the local paper is filled with armed robberies of liquor stores, convenience stores and banks. Since just before Christmas there have been 4 armed robberies of banks and 7 convenience / liquor stores, (5 in last two days) here on the Cape. Up in Boston, a convenience store clerk was gunned down after fully cooperating with the armed thug. I'm hoping that these dirtbags end up getting the proverbial dirtnap!
