Same thing happened in Madison. Twice.

Too many people have watched 'Breaking Bad'. Maybe they missed the part where the ATM crushed the meth-heads melon.

Memo to Walgreens: Install concrete bollards.

Business insurance will so costly no business can afford it in JackTown. Make Jackson Great Again.

Would an ATM meet the legal definition of 'attractive nuisance'? Usually a thing meeting that definition takes over your mind and draws you in like a kid to a trampoline down the street or a large hole with a culvert down in it that beckons for children to come play.

I see absolutely no reason for a business to have an ATM machine. If you go shopping without any money, you don't need to be unsupervised, out in public. Same with casinos.

The crooks are after something of value.
Have you ever heard of a crook stealing something of no value?
Crooks do ATM's because they don't have to confront anyone.
These Indians, pakanstain who own the store are fully armed to the teeth.
Casinos offer the HOPE of turning a dollar into a million.

If you think you're going to come out of a casino with more money than you had when you entered, you don't need to be unsupervised in public.

Speaking of which, if you think you're a little past your prime, maybe not as young and good-looking as you once were, maybe a bit overweight. If you feel bad about yourself, then visit a Mississippi or a Louisiana casino. You'll walk out feeling like a new person! Everyone in these places is either fat (I mean Orca fat), disabled, on oxygen, over 80, missing limbs, missing teeth, or some combination of these.

It's one of the best services they offer to the population. One trip to Vicksburg or Shreveport to gander at the clientele will make you feel like you're 25 and at your physical peak.

Wow said...

Dang. That's where I go to grab tennis balls and pick up prescriptions. Wild.

The Solution For Walgreens is Simple said...

Johnny Weir: Show me a reason for an upscale chain store like Walgreens to have an ATM machine. ATMs are stolen because they are full of money. Why the hell would Walgreens invite this level of crime to their stores? It's like having a jewelry display case in the front window. Get rid of the damned things. Tomorrow. If not today. But no later than next Monday.

folks don't use the ATM for cash to shop in the store, they get cash to spend elsewhere...

how do these thugs know how to get the cash out of the machines???

@6:13 they tear it to pieces with crowbars and sledgehammers.

If the business is doing a cash only business they need the machines. Some places would go out of business completely if their cash only business was stopped. Those places usually have a salesman somewhere outside of the store.

9:46; Your post is rather irrelevant to the story. We're talking about upscale drugstores here. The last three or four have been the same chain. They are not 'cash only' businesses.

Anonymous said...

1:14, you are not keeping up. The cash only business is not store products. It is what the people working there or hanging around sell. Their special product, not store bought items. Sold in the parking lot, street, or behind the store. These people do not take credit cards.

Walgreens and any store in the metro area just should take out those ATM machines anyway

Snatch Them Sumbatches Out! said...

2:00 - That's the point I've tried to make three times. A drug store is actually a convenience store now. None of them needs a damned ATM machine. No reason for them to have them installed in the first place.

I don't give a rat's ass about the reason people use them. If there is no benefit to the store, there is no business reason to have one. NONE. Period!

PittPanther said...

I'm positive the store gets a cut of the transaction fee you pay when withdrawing money from an ATM. That's their benefit. That's why they're willing to allocate space in their stores for the machine. They are selling you easy access to your money.

Anonymous said...

If the store did not benefit from the machines they would not be in there taking up space.

I hope the 'benefit' they derive from having these machines will wipe out the expense of replacing front doors and sixteen panels of glass and aluminum on either side of the doors. But, HEY, it's great PR..... Never mind the fact that hundreds of people will decide, for the sake of safety, to head to CVS where these machines won't be found.

The people who decide to put and keep the machines in the stores are not the ones who pay for the damage done. Must be a lot of grade school kids on here. They can't understand simple English.
The machines are there for the customers to drug dealers and thieves. How much more simple can a person get? Drug dealers and thieves do not take credit cards. Anything on the store shelves you can buy with the same card you use in the machine and not be charged for using the card. People use the machines to get cash to buy drugs and stolen items people sell in the parking lot, on the street, or behind the store. Sometimes the workers in the store will sell these items but they do not take credit cards either.

Is that simple enough to understand?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
