Armed robber hits F'ville pharmacy on Christmas Eve

Armed robber hits F'ville pharmacy on Christmas Eve

Fayetteville Police are searching for a suspect who robbed the CVS store located at 480 North Glynn Street on Christmas Eve.

Lt. Mike Whitlow said the robbery occurred at approximately 6:45 p.m. when a white male walked into the CVS store, told the clerk he had a gun and demanded money from the cash register.

"The suspect kept his hand in his right pocket indicating he was holding a weapon. The cashier gave the suspect money from the register and the suspect fled on foot," Whitlow said.

Whitlow said Fayetteville units were in the area and responded within seconds. Police believe the suspect is still in the area and may have an accomplice who is also on foot.

The male was wearing a gray hooded sweat shirt over a white t-shirt, a white baseball cap with a blue bill, camouflaged pants and blue tennis shoes with pink laces, Whitlow said.

Fayetteville Police and Fayette County deputies are still searching the area and are asking that anyone with information about this suspect to contact the Fayette County 911 Center at 770-461-4357.

You're an example of superior intelligence and reasoning. Thank you for contributing!! I guess because you don't live in a trailer park occupied by 'whites' or just off a certain street near Hollywood B;vd in Los Angeles. or some of the areas that I have seen here in Georgia where the population is all 'white' - you hate all 'white' people. What a shame. Actually, just because persons find that they live in a 'poorer' area does not mean they are thugs', 'prostitutes', druggies, etc., etc., etc. - or that they 'hate' anyone. There are people in those areas who also try to 'love their neigjhbor as themselves'. Keep sharing your superior, unbiased reasoning skills. They are enlightening. What is frightening is that you appear to be intelligent - but warped by a segregated upbringing . ( I could be wrong - maybe you're just an honest to goodness jerk.)

say what you will...he gotcha

"DM, we all know that the reason you moved to the predominately white Fayette County in the 90's, instead of Fulton or Dekalb, was because of the low crime rate. Like Jessie Jackson and his ilk, you constantly make excuses for the terrible job black parents have done raising these,children turned into thugs, that they turn loose on society.
Why not tell the truth.
What "white neighborhood" are you going to move to, now that the thugs have moved in all around you?"

He said what everyone knows about you. You don't trust/want to live in a black area,(or you would) but you hate the whites for having one that is safe. That is why you sit on here and spew your hatred year after year. Instead of trying to verbally punish the whites, you were a teacher,why not go make a difference, instead of trying to shame the whites into it. Whites have done their part. They have let you go to the front of the line for about 50 years, dumbed down the schools, had quotas in the work force, made excuses for you having the NAACP on speed dial when you didn't get your way at work, school, etc.
What else do you think we should do before you get off your butt and do something for your own race? Go Make a difference instead of trying to shame everyone else into doing it for you....cause none of us are ashamed...many have run out of patience.

Suggarfoot - what should Americans do?

Treat one another as you want to be treated. Almost every citizen that I have met in FC has demonstrated this attitude. If you feel you have done enough for your fellow Americans, fine. If you feel giving all Americans equal opportunity has run its course, and it's time to favor one segment of our society based on skin color, fine. I think what you fear is occurring . Minorities and women have the skills and work ethic to outperform some 'white men' and to some males, this is frightening. Sorry, but I guess you'll just have to work harder, make sure your grandchildren get an excellent education so that they can out perform minorities and women. Skin color will not be the determining factor unless malcontents continue to complain because they lost their ace in the hole. Hate is destructive, and is a dangerous element in the fabric of a united nation. I have gained nothing through hate - although there were groups in my youth that preached it daily.

There are many here who ignore you because of your words, there are many who ignore me because of my words. In Fayetteville, Peachtree City and Newnan, I have had the pleasure of associating with many people who do not have your attitude. For this, I'm grateful.

DM - It's

hard to ignore either one of you for similar reasons. ;-)

I must say however that Suggarfoot isn't near as sweet as her name implies.

that was ...not...what was said

"Suggarfoot - what should Americans do? "

I NEVER said what Americans should do....doge and rephrase, that is what you are doing.

I plainly said, people here have your number. Several have pointed out, you run away from the black community because you feel it is beneath you to live there. You want to live where whitie is. As you said were taught, you could have better.

You were point blank asked why you don't live among your own and help them, and you skirted it with what should all Americans do? We weren't making a blanket statement...we were talking about you. Why don't you go to Africa...I hear they are starving there and need help...You have PLENTY of time...right? you know to give back and all that? You are BS

Black neighborhoods

The developments in Fayetteville, built by Weiland, are integrated and advertised as such. He has built homes in the historically black Cascade area - because there are those who were raised in Georgia and other parts of our country who are very proud to live in Cascade. Many families have been in that area for generations. We have many friends and family who still maintain homes there. My husband and I were raised in an integrated environment with families of kindred tastes and aspirations. There are many areas in the south that are integrated, Fayette County being one of them. In our nation, the last report was that 11 to 12 % of the total population is minority. In Fayette County, the minority population is reported to be 20%. We visited many areas in the Atlanta area and chose Fayette County for the following reasons: integrated churches; integrated schools; quality businesses with excellent customer service for the most part; close proximity to the Atlanta cultural offerings. As I stated before, , there are all 'black' areas in Fayette County that had the type of house we were interested in, but could not afford. The development where we built our home was integrated 10 years ago and it still is today. We had a block party recently and welcomed some of the new families to our community. We're still integrated and happy with our neighbors. The 'new' south is a great place to live and raise a family. Hope you're happy in your community. If I ever met you, I would feel that you and your attitude are beneath the people I have met in FC. - and there are those who agree with me. I am not in this conversation to 'dodge' anything - just sharing a different opinion than yours.

What an opportunity! Thanks so much! I moved to an integrated neighborhood in Fayette County where neighbors had a similar educational and financial background to my famiky. I moved to Fayette County Georgia rather than historical Cascade or Buckhead or Marietta because I could afford the type of home here without putting up with LA traffic on the 400. There are all 'black' areas in Fayette County that tourists visit because of the beautiful homes and yards (Country Lakes). The majority of Americans today will work hard to be able to live among neighbors with kindred taste - regardless of skin color. Trash will seek its own level, regardless of skin color. (Do you associate with any of the 20% minorities that reside in Fayette County?). (What is your 'level'?). Don't bother to answer - your words have already identified your 'level'.

I excuse no one for poor parenting, and I live where my funds allow me to live. In my adult life, that has always been an integrated neighborhood. My parents generation fought hard for me to have that right, and no trash talking American will ever be able to deny me of my rights. Love has always won over ignorance and hate - but people like you make it difficult to preach 'love your neighbor'. Happy New Year!

I said something months ago about it and you ignored it.....Truth is...you don't want to live in an all black area because of the crime and everyone knows it.

You hate whites, there is no doubt, but are scared of your own people... or you would be sittin in Clayton preaching all your BS. Everyone knows why you are here.

It's a White Guy - Time for Recalibration or merely at Outlier?

Horrors! A white guy robbed the CVS in Fayetteville. The silence is deafening from all the usual bloggers who attribute every conceivable ill to those people of color who come to our lily white county and perpetrate all manner of evil among the blameless Caucasian community.

Don't worry. This white guy is only an extreme outlier. In fact, those pink shoes identify him as a certain homosexual, and therefore, not "one of us." I'm sure that Blacks are responsible for all the other ills in our society from Obama on down to the town drunk. You can't argue with the "science" of skin pigmentation and sexual orientation.

Ahh, the tired old excuse,

Ahh, the tired old excuse, "but, but white people commit crime too!" Wow, really? I had no idea. No one denies that white people commit crimes. However, this doesn't belie the fact that black criminality is proportionally much greater than that of whites.

True. Black arrests and convictions are proportionately higher than 'whites'. Now that is an entirely different discussion. There are interesting studies of court cases reviewing this truism. Lord knows, this old black woman who has lived in integrated environments is aware that whites' commit crimes. Criminals come in all colors, from all stations in life. Citizens with commen sense did not accuse all white men with long hair 'nuts' because of the actions of Charles Manson. But there are some individuals with questionable intelligence who spread the fear of all black men with hoodies. I am a victim of the fear of all white men in pick up trucks because of the racism that I was taught as a child. Racism has to be carefully taught. To get rid of racism in this country, we first have to acknowledge that it exists, recognize it, and educate against it. The younger generation is learning to judge by actions rather than skin color. There is hope.

You and DM always assuming that just because there isn't an immediate response that everyone is back to blaming the people of color. Get a grip dude, maybe people are busy enjoying the holidays. Geesh.

Thuggery comes in all colors...I lump this guy in with all the other thugs that seem to do this on a weekly basis. Want to bet he is from Clayton County?

Appreciate your opinion, but some of your not so observant friends may not. It's become very clear who the one or two bigots are. IMO, you're not one of them. Remember RKS, not all reported crime is not just around hiolidays. The reaction comparison? Hmmmmmm.

I will repeat myself...just because someone doesn't reply on here, does not mean you should assume anything at all. There are plenty of people who take issue with the thugs in this town, no matter what color they are, they just don't post here. There are plenty of us, who read this online paper daily but don't post, that doesn't mean you should assume anything about us.

Assuming that because someone doesn't comment to a news article means they are ignoring the white crime is a really foolish conclusion. That's my point, not directed at your or anyone, but that's my point.

I don't care what color the thug is, I am realistic in my conclusions, this town has been ruined by crime. What color the criminals are is immaterial..the fact that the majority of them comes from Clayton and Henry is the reality of it.

Point well taken. However, silence is not always 'golden'. I know from experience that the majority of citizens in FC are not bigots. . . from their actions, sincere volunteerism, hospitality, etc. I still say I have identified two card carrying bigots on this site - and they are proud of it!!!

Thanks for Clearing that up

RKS - I'm sure you are right. The thug wannabe must be from Clayton County, because he could not possibly develop the skills to commit so dastardly a deed without assistance from the "usual suspects." (Wink, Wink).

I don't care what color they are, they are criminals and who taught them to be a criminal is their family and society. Someone failed them. I don't know the answers, too old to do all of that. I am not picking a side, I will however admit the reality of the fact, Fayetteville is crime ridden and my neighborhood has been ruined.

Really? Where in Fayetteville do you live? (Rhetorical question). The Pavilion problem is being handled by observant customers; law enforcement and cooperative business owners paying for private security. I notice that banks and other shopping areas are increasing their security personnel. In this economy, where are you going to run? A thug can rob you in a parking lot, break into your home, pick your pocket. Our children are not safe in our schools; our private information is not secure; peace-loving families living in the suburbs have been murdered. Where do you run? I feel safe in my community with the cooperation of our Neighborhood Watch and law enforcement ; my home security system, etc. Have a safe journey, I feel very safe in Fayetteville, GA.

Some Elected Officials Do Keep Promises

When Sheriff Barry Babb was campaigning, he promised to be a "hands-on" sheriff. I can attest to the fact that he is keeping his promise.

I was driving past the CVS Pharmacy a few minutes after the robbery, and there was Sheriff Babb standing in the right hand lane of Hwy. 92. , stopping cars.

Thanks so much Sheriff Babb for keeping your promises to the citizens of Fayette County.
