  1. Ok I would like to say….
    I do not know why or whom said that.
    The guy knocked on door…. woke us… we did not open at 1st knock.
    2nd knock, my friend got up… opened door no one at door, so looked. He came back in with a gun at him. I looked at guy and said out that thing a way, you kidding Me? He reassured me that he was not kidding, told me empty pockets and purse. I don’t have shit…. he told us go in back room. We started, thank heavens out high power looking over us, he looked down. My friend took opportunity and took him down. We took action.

    I do not know who gave you all the b.s. your saying but that is the truth
