Armed Robbery At Fashionable Ventura Boulevard Jewelry Store
Studio City, CA—Dana Kathryn Jewelry is no stranger to armed robbers and they’ve been hit before. This time as in the last, the three thugs were caught on tape doing their nasty deed.
During Thursday’s lunchhour the trio posed as customers, drew guns and ordered salesladies to the floor and bound them with plastic zip-ties. They gathered some $200,000.00 in jewelry and cash before they fled into a grey automobile.
The Los Angeles area businesses are easy pickings for criminals since they don’t believe in armed resistance. Of course sometimes the thugs kill their unarmed victims. Failure to train and arm those in the Jewelry or cash businesses has been redundantly proven to be a real killer.
Once again it’s nice to see just how well all those California gun laws protect everyone.
The victims waited ten minutes for the LAPD to respond to the emergency. That lackluster response does not make me feel warm and fuzzy.
I guess this store is really popular with African-American thugs that enjoy terrorizing White people.
