    Default Friend robbed at gunpoint, east stroudsburg walmart

    A few nights ago, at approximately 11:30pm my friend went to walmart in east stroudsburg to grab some dvds. She was bored, not tired, and needed something to do.

    Went in, grabbed her DVD's, came out. Walked to her vehicle, unlocked her vehicle, and was in the process of getting inside the drivers seat when she felt a hard object placed against the back of her head.

    Man : give me your money now, don't turn around or i will kill you

    Her : I don't have any money(she doesn't carry cash)

    Man : give me your wallet now or i will kill you

    Her : i really don't have any money in my wallet

    Man : i don't care, give it to me anyway

    she gives the man her wallet

    Man : don't turn around for x amount of time, or i will kill you

    Her : okay

    she waited a while, got in her car, and cried her eyes out. Then walked into walmart seeking aid. manager called 911 and stroud area regional arrived shortly after. They didn't take a report, since "nothing of value" was taken. She had left her ID at home, and had her credit card in her pocket, which she didn't hand over to the robbers. She told SARP there was 2 males. She said they were black, which she was able to pick up from their voices. She wasn't able to get a glimpse of their faces, since they got the drop on her, and then told her if she turned around they would kill her. Apparently SARP told her, since nothing of value was taken, and walmart didn't want/need the bad publicity, no report would be filed.

    A few days later, they found her wallet, with some library cards in it, by the train tracks behind walmart. They called her up and she came and retrieved her wallet, and that was the end of it. They had nothing on the robbers, and apparently, they didn't care to find out.

    Anyways, figured I would let you folks know there are some assholes out there robbing people at gun point, but thats probably nothing new. After all, this is Monroe county....

    Alright that right there just pisses me off. I'm sorry but she should have demanded that a report be filed. So her wallet doesn't have value? I'm pretty damn sure someone paid money for it, so yeah, it has value. The phrase, "terroristic threats" comes to mind too, which is a a first degree misdemeanor. Then there's simple assault, which is a second degree misdemeanor.

    So they decide not to write a report, and ignore a first degree misdemeanor, a second degree misdemeanor, and a first degree felony, all because of "bad publicity"?!?!?!

    She handled the situation well and thankfully survived the ordeal.

    So glad she was not hurt by these shitheads. (The robbers, not the cops)

    Kinda strange reaction from the cops.

    So, when are you taking her shopping for her handgun and helping her fill out her LTCF app? And of course going to the range with her for some practice
    Does the gun watewrproof?

    So if she shot this scumbag, would stroud police charge her because nothing of value was being taken.

    I'm glad your friend is here to tell her story, but before you go gun shopping I think she needs to work on her SA. Also needs to be taught where and when she can go shopping (sad but true). At that hour believe it or not the Mt. Pocono store is safer. Sure it's a drive, but better spend gas then shed blood.

    That store has had a reputation for years. Between the robberies (remember the LTCF carrier that shot back) and the rapes you wouldn't find me anywhere near that store at night let alone at night by myself.

    I wonder if the media would be interested in hearing about the police not caring to take reports for armed robbery?
