Disturbingly Nonchalant Though Better Than Chaotic I Suppose

From MPD:

    it looks like the robber left a lot of cash in the register… i don’t get it.

      Noticed the same. I guess for the sake of time he focused on the row of the largest bills, $100 or $50s presumably but $20 bills add up and it looks like he missed all of them.

    That really pissed me off to see. Glad everyone remained calm but still wish someone would of got his ass as soon as he hit the exit door.

    • Dude had a gun. Business has insurance. Should someone get shot over $400?
      And just think, once he’s caught us taxpayers get to spend money paying for his Public Defendant, jail time, and parole officers. Awesome.

    Wow! Nonchalant indeed. Perhaps some didn’t even know it was happening.

    “And no, don’t give me those damn Euros you keep forgetting to exchange!”

    • Kevin

      LMAOOO I just got the joke

  • Chips and Dips

    The way the handgun was brandished looked off. Like it wasn’t real so they flashed it only and didn’t let anyone really see it

    From the pizza oven I’m guessing its the &Pizza they should check the metro cameras

  • jaybird

    “Give me the money &pizza!”

  • Gallery Place NW

    I wonder if he had to be more specific when he said, “Give up to the dough!”

  • Kristen

    It seemed like the customers in the store were not aware of what was going on? If I had been there I would like to think that I would have called 911.

    What is the community’s opinion about the role of a bystander in these situations?

    Happy Saturday DC people :)

    Is anyone else bothered or confused by the date/time stamp on the video that shows Jan. 30th at 11:30 pm (rather than Jan. 29th at 10:30 pm quoted in the comment)??
