I’ve just been told that the lowlife pointed a large gun, either a shotgun or rifle, at the faces of the kitchen staff, tied them up with black zip ties and threw bleach on them for good measure. Charming fellow..

Told? By whom? You really should curb your fantasist tendencies

Not to worry. I’m sure it will turn out to be a sad, disturbed individual let down by the system, who wouldn’t hurt a fly.

The early morning timing did puzzle me – suggests the culprit had good reason to believe that there would already be a very worthwhile sum of money on the premises (something which might generally be expected at 6.30pm, not 6.30am)

As I recall there are mostly woman working in that kitchen and to tie them up makes this lowlife an extra special POS!
