Hoping for a speedy recovery for you young manBig Grin Angel. I hope these thugs serve a long time in jail. Glad the lottery Commission went ahead and paid the young  man.  Thumbs Up

Larry Felton, Jr. (sure his Dad is proud) has been arrested as the getaway driver.  The folks from the Kentucky Lottery Commission are very nice people, love their large booth @ the KY State Fair every August.

 

Too bad those thugs most likely won't go to the Eddyville Prison Complex with the lifers there.

 

Quick recovery to this innocent young man.

    Sad. Watch what you do today and what you say and who you tell things to like this.

    When you think you can be comfortable and happy in your own space, someone is probably watching you waiting for

    a chance to take it away. The world has become a sad place and I don't expect it to get better anytime soon. No morals,

    respect and not much is taboo anymore. I'm sorry this happened to this kid, it was his and someone needed to take it

    from him. I see the lottery paid him for it? That's good. I hope he recovers quickly.

    SERIOUS BUSINESS

     

    I couldn't have said it better, myself.  This has been turning into a crummy world.
    Now, these two black boys want to take the young man's 1000 dollars.

    So Thankful
    I'm thankful, for never yet having been in a similar situation, involving a gun, though about 30 years ago, when those 25¢ video games were around, I was playing my silly game (I forget what it was, "Gorf", or "Space Mongrels", or something, and a guy sanding right behind me (who was a known drug dealer), and next thing you know, he had a gun pulled on him, by an under-cover cop.  I was like WOW!  Afterwards, I was like "I can't believe that happened", etc.

    Another time, I heard gun shots from the highway, a little distance from the shopping center to which we were headed.   We were driving the big truck at that time.

    So, you, me and EVERYONE should maybe get in the habit of singing to ourselves the old hymn "Nearer my God, to thee", as we never know when something may happen, and we're shot in the back of the head. I think about that sort of possibility happening to me ALL THE TIME, while I'm out and about. 
    It could be some nut hanging out in the woods, with a scope on his hunting rifle.
    Because to some, people are in season, year-round. 

    Wishing the young man a quick recovery.   

     

     

     

     

     

    (you mean "Nearer my God to thee", like they sang on the "Titanic?"
    yes, like on the "Titanic".)

    • Don't chase the numbers you play.
    • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
    • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
              (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

      If they'll shoot ya for a lousy thousand bucks, imagine what they'd do if you win a big jackpot.

      I hope the victim recovers fully.

      And unfortunately, Mr./Ms. HoLeeKau,

      This unfortunate incident is just going to be rolled up into one of thousands upon thousands, like a grain of sand, in a bucket.

      And, on the CNN forum, some time ago, there were still people that would tell you that things are getting better.  BUT, like the original poster in this forum, and like yourself, we all believe things all over are
      FALLING APART, not getting better.

      • Don't chase the numbers you play.
      • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
      • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.

          They did this for $1000? There are some crazy people out there. State laws should give people the right to remain anonymous. It can be very dangerous for winners to be identified, people can be like vultures when big bucks are involved.

          "State laws should give people the right to remain anonymous."

          You're so obsessed with lottery anonymity, you apply it to everything even when it's unrelated. It also shows ignorance of collecting lottery winnings.

          Apparently the robber didn't know he couldn't easily cash a ticket signed by some else either. The KY Lottery and the store clerk didn't identify the ticket holder, the crook was standing behind him in line. For cashing prizes over $600, the KY lottery has Cashing Agents in each county and the store clerk told the winner to sign the back of the ticket and probably sent him to a Cashing Agent.

            It's becoming the Wild, Wild West out there anymore!  That poor kid!  Disgusting thugs!!

            In 2003, I was on my way to a casino (what a surprise) and stopped halfway there at a gas station/convenience store to fill up my tank and get some coffee.  The lottery was fairly new then, so I bought ten $5 scratch-offs with some of the money I had brought with me to play with at the casino.  Got back in the car, scratched the very first one and it was a $500 winner! 

            I was stunned for like 10 minutes, just sitting there in disbelief, checking it over and over.  Then I started my car and headed directly back home, because I figured I had actually won $750 (a $500 scratch-off and the $250 left in my wallet that I didn't lose at the casino)! 

            Cashed it in the next day at a store near me.  I called and talked to the manager before I went there.  I told him that I had a winning $500 scratch off ticket and would they have enough cash in the till to pay me.  He said no, he would not give me cash.  He said that their policy was to issue a Western Union money order because it was safer for anything over $200.  Smart man.  He even let me keep the ticket after he gave me the money order!

                I would rather mail my winnings in and pay the extra money. I know it's a risk but you really have sick people in this world. I don't even want people to know I won $10 on a scratch off ticket.

                      This so sad....Just think how in some states you can't be animosity.

                      Unfortunately it wouldn't have mattered in this case he announced it to the store ,but dang it was only a grand, I guess people out there are that shady

                        Wow so you got the ticket AND the money order. I would have rather taken the cash myself, money orders are harder to cash lol I still would have hit that casino as well

                          A few years ago, I won $400 on a Powerball with Powerplay. My plan was to go to buy a money order with it because I didn't want to carry around all that cash. The store employee told me if they don't have the money for it, they give a money order free or charge for the amount.  She had to call her manager to figure out how to do it because it rarely happens.

                          Since then, for big wins, I usually go to a supermarket because they tend to have more cash on hand than a convenience store does. I also don't scratch my tickets in the store. Sometimes I'll scratch them in the car and if I win, I'll usually go cash them the next day. Yesterday I bought a scratcher at a convenience store and won $10. Cashed it today when I went to get my Sunday paper and my Powerball/Lotto/Easy 5 tickets for this week's drawings like I do every Sunday.
