    Recently there have been a lot of restaurant robberies, especially at closing time. I would love to see an increased police presence on these lots around closing time locally. My wife works as a manager and closes frequently. Guess I’ll be dropping her off and picking her up with my concealed and permit on me from now on. Scary.
