Two juveniles taken into custody following Saturday incident at Dollar Tree

Ok, so I work at Dollar Tree. The fact here is that these were people doing their jobs, families with children shopping and a kid "jokingly" says it's a hold up, he has a gun, isn't afraid to use it and says he will shoot the cops too? And these employees and families are supposed to shrug it off as if it is just "some kids"?? These are teenagers. They should know better. And no one should have to take this lightly just because we don't want to cause a problem in their future. Tell me one person who would not have felt threatened if they heard those words while working behind the counter or while standing in line with their kids.

Given recent events in school shootings... Are we to expected to look the other way if a teenager comes to school and "jokingly" says he has a gun and isn't afraid to use it???? Word on the street doesn't always paint the whole picture.

I am glad my co-workers did what they did. I don't want to see these kids lives ruined. I hope that they learn a very hard but very important lesson from this and are able to get on the right path.
