A Commerce woman was driving on Hwy. 98 at Steve Reynolds Blvd. last week when she was the victim of an armed robbery.
The woman, who was upset and crying when officers were called to the scene, said a dark colored car “shaped like a Crown Victoria” stopped in front of her. When she stopped, a man ran from the car and came up to her window and demanded money.
The woman said he grabbed her wallet, which had $160 in it, and ran back to his car and left.

The next time this happens to anyone reading this, reach over to your glove box and pull out your second amendment and dispose of this domestic terrorist. The police can not help you in a case like this. If you are unarmed you are a fool.
This is the reason I moved away from that area after 2 years of trying the big city. Chances are he would have shot her before she could lift the handle on the glove box. In South Africa people drive around with a loaded gun on there lap at all times because of this very thing. It's awful that the "dirty south" has let it come to this.What happened to our good ole boys that made sure this kinda of thing would never happen!!
Hey loulou you must be a damn yankee because you
said dirty south. Go back to the north if you don't like the south get the hell out the south.
I am country girl and I have lived in the south
and I and I work in this county for years it is no worse than any other place. I am just proud the lady was not hurt or even killed!!! Besides you need to understand ( WE, THE PEOPLE OF JACKSON COUNTY ARE PROUD OF OUR LAND.) IT IS PART OUT OF
COUNTRY THAT IS STILL FREE THE LAST TIME I LOOKED . oUR BOYS NOT FIGHTING FOR JUST THE POINT OF IT. They are for our rights to be protected and some nut that goes around
robbing and stealing. and you are worried about the dirty south. The good ole boys are doing as much AS THE GOVERNMENT WILL LET THEM DO I SURE
THERE ARE ALOT OF GOOD OLE BOYS THAT SURE WOULD LIKE DO ALOT MORE BUT YOU KNOW HOW THE COURT
SYSTEM IS A SLAP ON THE HAND AND DON'T DO IT AGAIN. WHAT CAN THE GOOD OLE BOYS DO ?
Look at it like this: Shooting a criminal is economically more sensible. The average cost of a particular round that I carry in my personal-defense pistol is about $2.27. That is signifigantly cheaper than the thousands of dollars it takes to house an inmate (That is implying that the Commerce Police get off of the interstate and actually look for those who are truly commiting a crime).
