    Scott Kato, 45, of Mount Vernon, N.Y., held up Health Source Pharmacy at 1302 Second Ave. at 1:30 p.m., making off with a supply of Oxycontin pills and several hundred dollars in cash, police said. Tucked in with a bottle of dummy pills was a GPS tracking device, police said..........................

    When the suspect robbed the pharmacy in December, he took Viagra, Cialis and Oxycodone. Police said he was also a suspect in other store robberies.

    Kato was convicted of robbery and sexual abuse in 1990 for

    robbing women — and sexually assaulting his victims, records show.

    He was released in 2001, but was in and out of prison for parole violations until his maximum sentence expired in May 2008.

    He also has multiple prior drug arrests, some of which are sealed, cops said.

    I didn't read the actual article. Did the dude shoot at the police? Or did the cops just execute him?

    Based on your question, I'm guessing you don't usually read anything at all. The idiot robbed at least 5 other pharmacies.. pointing guns at innocent people.


    Prayers for the cops... Tinnitus can be so painful. ;)

    Didn't say he did. He just doctor shopped to get his 2000 pills.

    Should have shot him anyway.

    "Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country," Limbaugh said in October 1995 on a television show he had at the time. "And so, if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up."

    Yes. If you disagree w/ someone politically, they should be shot. Leftists are a compassionate bunch.

    Unfortunately, they've got the Stupid vote locked up. That's a majority of the country

    Half of the people who post here are clearly taking dummy pills.

    There was a GPS in the burrito I had last night.

    I checked this morning, and I don't want to tell you where it's headed.
