TMZ asked if anyone thought this man was really packing. When you're alone in a convenience store in the middle of the night, you have to assume he does have a gun. If you don't and you're wrong, you could lose your life. It's easy to smugly speculate when it wasn't you.

Ok, Number 1 it is not a guy, the body type and size would be consistent with a "latino" homegirl, much like the stop-n-rob clerk is. The movement, stride, also are indictive of a woman, alone with the arm size and make up. The clothing is consistant with lation chubby wear also. And what "guy", crook or not, has a lime green towel at his disposal. Maybe a hand under the coat, pocket but a green towel covering a strick-give me a break.

I live in Lincoln, Nebraska. I had just read this article online in our local newspaper. I clicked on TMZ's website, and this was the most recent piece posted. It is beyond funny. I too think this is a woman.
