CLEARWATER — The three men who held up a CVS Pharmacy on New Year’s Day planned their moves meticulously. The robbers hit at 5 a.m. They wore blue surgical gloves so they wouldn’t leave prints. They waved guns at employees and bound several of them with zip ties. Detectives would later review store surveillance video that showed one of the suspects casing the place the day before. And they made off with a boatload of drugs in white garbage bags — more than 10,000 pills that contained the opioids hydrocodone and oxycodone, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. It had an estimated street value of about $320,000.

Comments:

It was a fine haul for the New Year's early morning armed robbers. If they hadn't been litterbugs, they wouldn't have been caught so soon. These three Einsteins, 19, 19, and 18, respectively, will have decades in the hoosegow to ponder their life choices.

Why does a single pharmacy need 10,000 doses of opioids?

I'm trying really hard not to make a racial comment but ... These three stooges watched enough crime shows to be aware that gloves and disguises help but didn't watch through to the end where the escaping thieves DO NOT LEAVE A TRAIL TO YOUR DOOR FOR THE POLICE. My stomach hurts.

Re #1: Also, Clearwater has a very large elderly population. There are a lot of pain-killer Rxs for the elderly, and maybe too many of them are for opioids.

This is why my local Walgreen's stopped being open all night. Too much crime. I never go to CVS. Some years back I went to one out of my area because they said they had my medication in stock. They didn't, but the pharmacy keep my driver's license. On the way out, a suspicious customer was walking in. By the time I got down the street and realized she didn't return my ID and went back, the yellow tape was up and police on the scene because he tried to rob them. I had to go to the drive thru to get my ID. Keep in mind this was a wealthy area near Tiger Woods former home.

Canada is presently in the throes of social and political disintegration. A left-leaning electorate has once again empowered a socialist government promoting all the lunatic ideological shibboleths of the day: global warming or “climate change,” radical feminism, indigenous sovereignty, expansionary government, environmental strangulation of energy production, and the presumed efficiency of totalitarian legislation. Industry and manufacturing are abandoning the country in droves and heading south. Canada is now reaping the whirlwind. The Red-Green Axis consisting of social justice warriors, hereditary band chiefs, renewable energy cronies, cultural Marxists, and their political and media enablers have effectively shut down the

There is much grumbling about President Trump's pardons of well-known Americans such as former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, former NYPD Chief Bernard Kerik and former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo, Jr. Some have claimed that it's the end of the rule of law and justice that the president would grant clemency to this well-known rogues gallery along with small-time drug dealers. Blue checkmarks are in high dudgeon: (Snip) Though it wasn't as bad as Bill Clinton pardoning arms dealer Mark Rich and Puerto Rican terrorists, there was plenty of ick factor implicit in some of Trump's choices for pardons and commutations.

An interesting twist is arising from the decision of Attorney General Barr to name an outside counsel, Jeffrey Jensen, to investigate the Michael Flynn case. The former top prosecutor on special counsel Robert Mueller's team says the ploy by Barr is a "ruse" so that the Department of Justice can open a new investigation into former FBI officials James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Peter Strzok. Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official who was known as Mueller's "pit bull" during the Russia investigation, says that "all they did was swapped out a loser case for starting an investigation that is going to be of Comey, McCabe, Pete Strzok,"

This was the week that President Trump really started to drain the swamp. It came when he yanked the nomination of Jessie Liu to a Treasury Department post. The decision was all Trump’s, and occurred after Trump learned details about what was going on when she was United States Attorney for the District of Columbia. Though Trump was most aggravated with Liu not clamping down on the outrageous sentencing recommendations of her staff in the Roger Stone case, there was a long list of other concerns that made it clear to the president the extent of ideological weaponization across the Justice Department. Let’s start with Roger Stone for now. Liu’s so-called

Hollywood writer-singer-dancer Dick Van Dyke formally backed Sen.

Sanders, 78, touted the video endorsement from the Mary Poppins legend, 94, in an apparent effort to appeal to older voters.

This is not the “He’s a total lightweight but he’s pretty harmless so we can sandbag him,” disrespect they had for George HW Bush.

It seems Michael Bloomberg entered the presidential race for at least two reasons: he wants to be president and he understands the importance of denying President Trump a second term. His late entrance into the race, however, means every decision he makes is exponentially more consequential as the clock counts down to November 3. His strategy so far has been to spend -- and spend some more -- blanketing the media landscape with the message that he's the best candidate to take on Trump. In any political campaign, candidates need to know what they stand for, and who -- or what - they're up
