Aye these indeed are hard economic times when a man can rob a Subway with a tire iron.

Roger - not much cash on hand at Subway to begin with - I'm sure employees are trained not to resist for safety reasons - a tire iron over the head isn't worth it.

We live in Danville and we go to Subway Fast Food often for lunch and it is not safe anywhere now days to go anywhere even at the Subways how sad and scary for our society and our young children. Hopefully this coming year will be a better year for our economy.

Lais, quit complaining about your safety in Danville.. Open your damn eyes and look around the world. Only then might you realize you are better off then most. Most kids are crying them self to sleep wondering if they are going to wake up in the morning to see their family. In the mean time you have a town full of stuck up people that are worried about small things don't effect them the slightest bit. NO ONE WAS EVEN HARMED. Who knows maybe that little boy that was crying him self to sleep is now on the edge of death from starvation. What he doesn't know is that on the other side of the world there are people like you, stuck up is an understatement, living in a house that is most likely worth more then how much it would cost to feed and protect his whole town for a life time.

Your hardest choice in life is to choose what luxury car to buy? Or where to go on your dream vacation? Where as kids growing up in third world country's don't have any choices and the decisions they make result in either life or death situations. Think about that next time before making a stupid comment.

Ask yourself is it REALLY not safe for you to go anywhere?

If you cant tell already people that think similar to you really wind me up. All I ask is that you take time out of your day to think about what I said.
