Lead Exercise

September 21, 2010

There was a armed robbery last night at BJ’s drug.  The owner Barney Joseph said that two men came into the store dressed in ski masks around 8:30 p.m. Barney was held up at gunpoint while the second robber stole the cash.  The whole robbery was over in less than a minute, with the robbers leaving in a running car out front.

After looking through police reports, police found out that Barney had a father killed while being held up at the same store almost 25 years ago.  When police questioned to why he did not resist, he replied “I’d rather part with my money than my life.”

A fire broke out last night  killing 15 horses.

At 4 am in Suffolk Downs Race Track in Boston, a fire broke out in a barn that was holding 25 horses. Of the 25 horses, ten were able to escape.  What remains of the barn is several rows of charred wooden supports.

Arson is the leading cause of the fire so far.  Dan Bucci, the assistant store manager of the track says “It could have been of an incendiary nature because it started in the middle of the barn.”

    You’re missing the drama of the story, Ryan. Catch my interest: Two armed men robbed a local drug store last night while holding the owner at gunpoint. Rest of the story is OK.

    Similar on the other story. A barn fire at Suffolk Downs killed 15 horses, one day before racing season began.
