"According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, a Burger King employee was entering their vehicle when an unknown subject approached."

Shouldn't it be: "According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, a Burger King employess was entering his (or her) vehicle. Isn't employee singular? Editors, what's up?

So there was no crime in the world before Obama became president? You're an idiot.

Yes, Jonathan, what's up with that? We always read when the perp is black, never read about white, Native, etc. Don't those people ever commit crimes in Lawrence? Also, does the paper have stats on whether on not there is an actual crime surge, as regrards robbery with or without weapons?

"Police searching for suspect in _ morning burglary" You guys just cut and paste this headline every weekend don't you?

OK, I am a cynic, but I think there are some holes in this story (at least the way it is reported). The employee just has this person come up to the car late at night and talk to them, and then just reach in and take money??? Something tells me this was the business money and not the employee's, or there is really more to this story.

AND Lawrenceguy40 - could you Please get off your Obama rant with every f*g article. In case you hadn't noticed he won and the election is over for 4 more years. Try reminding people when it comes TIME for an election.

why is this story headline not up in the breaking news zone on the webpage?

some description would be nice, once again we're left being on the lookout for "suspect" or "suspects."

does lpd really wanna solve this crime?

"have it your way at Burger King!"

Oh, and now that I think of it - why is label a Burglary?? The person was present and one would assume (at least the way the story is written) they would have somehow objected or been forced into giving over the money making it a Robbery. Like I said - more questions than answers.

Maybe Lawrenceguy is the one pulling these recent heists so he can blame them on Obama...

somebodynew After reading your comment I read the report again and I think you are right. I guess we will know when the employee buys a new television or some such. The Obama rant will go on. Just get used to it.
