“You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream.” Unfortunately, there was only one person screaming at the ice cream store, with a gun in his hand! Last Wednesday, September 5th, a male about 5’5, with blonde or light brown hair around the age of 25 to 30, enetered Kay’s Ice Cream Shop on Chapman Highway demanding money, according to the officials. Officials also stated, the suspect pointed the gun at the employee’s head and when he could not get the store safe open, the suspect stole the employee’s wallet and fled. WBIR, stated that the suspect was wearing tan clothing and a white surgical mask to cover his face.
On the Knoxnews Twitter page, there have been comments and laughs about this robbery. This robbery has become a twitter joke.Now people, I understand it is still apart of the summer and we may still have ice cream cravings or some of us need extra money to pay our rent this semester.However, I can promise you that times are not that hard financially, for you to be robbing a local ice-cream shop and risking your career and life over a possible $20 in somebody’s wallet. This is why we all need a college education, understanding the risks and consequences of our actions, and some common sense on the side. If this man gets caught,(which I hope he does) he is going to need a lot more money than those couple of dollars in that wallet to bail him out. People need to get an education these days. For crying out loud, if you are going to be a criminal, please at least be an intelligent one. Lord have mercy, we need to be screaming for intelligence and common sense these days because there somehow is a shortage!
