    Why aren’t these cash stores’ doors only allowed to be opened by an employee pushing a button? An employee can then observe someone BEFORE they let them in. Or have bullet proof glass surrounding the employee area. If I was an employee, I would sue the corporation for not taking appropriate measures to protect my life…then maybe they would DO something.
