Wegmans or Walmart?


Does it really matter?
 
From the Greece Post (11/21/13) pg. A12 ~~
"On Nov. 11, two black males approached a customer leaving the Latta Rd. Walmart, pointed a gun at him, and told him not to move. The victim fought with the suspects, who fled in a blue Jeep Cherokee after punching him in the face."

What Walmart on Latta? I was only aware of the ones on Ridge and on Dewey.

To answer your question, no I do not think it matters. Why did Willie Sutton rob banks? Because that is where the money was. Where their are shoppers occasionally an incident will occur. Heck look at the random act of violence out near Wolcot where the shopper was killed lat year. Unfortunately these tragedy's occur and no one is immune. This Greece store has had a very low incident rate.

To 4:19PM ~~ EXACTLY!! Thus the question I posed ;)

to 6:07PM ~~ There is no Walmart on Latta Rd. so the question becomes ... did they mean Walmart on Dewey or Wegmans on Latta.

Downplaying such incidents is the typical head-in-the-sand approach Greece uses for dealing with ALL its troubles ... thus "bad" headlines are ours for perpetuity.

Or it could mean Latta Rd Walgreens?
You know those cursive W's. In any case it happened in Greece and we should be cautious.

The Post reporter no doubt got the story off the police Blotter. The D&C reporter has access to the same info but can't print the report. Orders straight from top management forbids the disclosure of incidents such as these in Greece. Can you say Chamber of Commerce and membership by the VP in Charge of News at the D&C? There is your answer !

Keep us posted on some GPD action on North Avenue just north of the Ridge this morning around 9:30. Four or five GPD cars and officers around a house on the east side of the road there.

To 6:32AM ~~ The Post reporter needs to figure out his/her mistake AND print a correction! (and maybe give up drinking the night before filing a story?)

To 9:50AM ~~ Maybe I'll ask Santa for a scanner for Christmas ... hmmm ...

Suggest you Google "Police Scanner APP" I have it on my Ipod. Price is right (as in FREE)

It happened at the Apartments on Latta and Dewey behind the bowling ally next to Lake Shore School.
