    As a future pharmacist, this story is very disturbing. If these small town pharmacy robberies keep happening, pharmacists will become more and more seperated from their patients. Next thing you know their will be bullet proof glass windows and a mechanical drawer and going to the pharmacy will be as impersonal as a drive through at a bank. This would be a deifinite step in the wrong direction.

    He is not a bad person he should be hung or put way for the rest of his life.it was not him doing it it was the drugs...he is not a dangerous person..he is a good person that was unfortunately taken over by drugs.

    I went to school with Steven and I can't believe he was capable of doing this. He was always a good kid and always smiling. His parents divorced when he was pretty young and he left with his mom. I haven't seen him very much since then. My thoughts and prayers go out for the people he attacked and for him, because GOD is the only one that can help them now.

    This is so sad. Steven was a wonderful person in high school. Steven always had a great personality, always smiling. This shows you what can happen when you get mixed up in drugs. So sad.

    This is beginnig to become a trend. Our children are abusing perscription drugs. And this creates a demand for them. And then you have the people who are willing to steal and kill to support their habit. Are our children headed for this in their futures

    So, will he have attempted murder charges?? Or will this be just an assault charge?? I think he should be charged with attempted murder!
