    Silly Shoe Bandit?

  5. anon Says:

    That guy zipped right past Cafe Zippy.

    His ugly vans shoes should give him away. Anyone know someone with the stupidest pair of shoes in Snohomish Co.? Or perhaps someone who has recently put them in the dumpster, where they rightfully belong.

      What happened At tAcobell tonight

    • Zach Says:

      He’s wearing some of the most common and unremarkable shoes among young people today. How do you find this notable? Am I missing something?

  6. Hillary Says:

    Another day another victim in Everett.

  7. anon Says:

    I don’t know him. Kid looks like a little a-hole.
    Good time to own a firearm folks.

    • Cory Says:

      You don’t shoot a kid for stealing your wallet. C’mon now

      • anon Says:

        I guess that he deserved the purse then. Society would say that you don’t just walk up and steal something from someone else, c’mon now. People get shot.over robberies all the time!

        If you’re willing to easily fork your money over, I have Paypal… I will gladly take your money, you can forward it to me.

        People need to stop giving passes to criminals. I suppose if you caught him you’d give him a nice.baseball butt pat. Give me a break.

      • Zach Says:

        Are you trying to reason with someone that thinks the replaceable contents of his wallet are worth more than a human life?

      • Nigel Says:

        With Shari Law he would be beheaded. Allahu Akbar 2016!!!

      • anon Says:

        Worth more than the scum who stole the wallet, that’s for sure.

      • anon Says:

        I wasn’t aware that a 21 year old man is still a child, or kid.

    • Keith Says:

      And importantly, you don’t fire a gun in a downtown area, with people walking around, and office buildings on every side, unless you’re in direct danger for your life.

  8. Laura Says:

    “Hello, I’m The Doctor. Basically, run.”

  9. Zach Says:

    Look at those getaway sticks. Kid’s a gazelle! Nobody would catch him.

    Legend says he’s still running today…
