Dunkin Donuts Donates to BSO Crime Programs

Okay, so the picture has nothing to do with the story. But Bo Hitchcock will like it. Maybe he even took it. And here's a shout out to a great guy hoping he is doing well. For those who do not know, local crim defense attorney shoots photos for Playboy, around the world.

Anyway, all of us were shocked by the stunning murders and robberies at Dunkin Donuts in November. Makes you wonder how bad things are getting financially in towns and cities across America. Is this a precursor of things to come? Kids in trucks pulling up to Circuit City chain stores, and using chains to pull down the awnings and bust in? Right on Federal in Broward and Dixie Highway in Dade? Brazen smash and grabs in jewelry stores in the middle of the day, kids armed with automatic weapons? Armed holdups of groups of customers in restaurants? There is nowhere anywhere anyone can ever be safe. It is almost becoming safe to work in a bank or convenience store. You can never guess how or when terror will strike.

So a word of thanks for to the Dunkin' Donuts chain, for making a $15,000 donation to crime prevention programs as a way to thank law enforcement for arresting the men charged with robbing shops in Broward and Palm Beach counties in late November. On the other hand, only 15K from a multi million dollar chain that size?

The chain's Community Foundation will also donate $10,000 to Broward County Crime Stoppers to support the Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.) program operated by the Broward Sheriff's Office Youth Intervention and Enforcement Division.

And hopefully they will do something for the families of the wounded and slain employees, scholarships, something...That is the kind of partnerships CEO's should forge, not ones on private jets....

The formal presentation will be Monday at a shop in Wilton Manors, near Fort Lauderdale. To make back their money, all Donuts will be five hundred dollars each that day. No problem, Rothstein is buying.
