According to the news today, this robber, Byron Phillip (age 30) had a long criminal history. Well, his crime sprees are over now. That's the chance you take when you choose to repeatedly victimize others; the tables might get turned on you one day, making it your last.

Be careful what you say on Patch when it comes to commenting on newly deceased CRIMINALS like the late Mr. Phillip. Not only will you hear from his bereaved family and friends reminding us of what a "great guy" he was. How he would "give anyone who asked the shirt off his back". How he was a great son/uncle/father/friend/brother to EVERYONE. And, most importantly, don't say much or the editors at Patch will never post your comment. Just say that the late Mr. Phillip was "just trying to get his life together in this tough economy."
