Rockford Scanner™: Suspects Hold A Gun To The Teen Girls Head During A Robbery At A Rockford Bank




Source is reporting their daughter was robbed at gunpoint at a Rockford bank. 

Source said:
“My 16 year old had a gun held to her head over a backpack and a phone!

She knew who did this cause the perp went to school with her and her friends.

She was at a bank parking lot (5400 block of Harrison ave) so there should be a video of the incident.
(PNC bank)

She went straight to the police, but despite of all the information it seams like there where no arrests.

Just last month I had my phone taken from me, and the cops REFUSED to go with me and retrieve it despite of me having an address to where it was.
They told me that I would be better off making a claim with my phone company.

The crime is never going to get better IF criminals know that they can get away with it and not even be anonymous.

Thanks for your help!”

Rockford Scanner™: Why do people comment, without reading the article?




 

Why do people comment, without reading the article?

So I have noticed this A LOT lately.   People comment on a title, other than then the factual content in an article.  You can tell they haven’t clicked on to read the article. Because the comments are no where near what actually happened, that clearly states what happened in the article.

A good example and as to why I am thinking about this right now.

Burger King on 11th st was robbed earlier tonight.  Admin Will went to go work the scene for me. Thank you Will, Much appreciated!  The police parked their vehicles next door at Auto Zone. See the photo below.

As you can see the police parked their vehicles there.   But the actual robbery happened at Burger King, next door.  You can CLEARLY read that it was Burger King that was robbed, at http://rockfordscanner.com/2019/07/22/rockford-scanner-armed-robbery-at-a-rockford-business-2 

People are commenting and thinking it is Auto Zone, based on the photo posted that shows all the police parked at Auto Zone.  Based on their comments, you can clearly see they did not take 2 seconds to click the link and read and CLEARLY read that it was Burger King that was robbed.

All these people do is make themselves look bad by commenting with bad info.   SMH………………

I ask that everyone please take a second and please click on the link and actually READ the content, before making comments.
