What could possibly be accomplished by robbing a Taco Bell? When we are talking about poor judgement this decision has to rank pretty high. OK, you have made the decision to be a criminal and you are going to steal money that does not belong to you. Might as well think big, right?
Or you can go the other way and rob a fast food restaurant that charges a dollar for most of their menu items. Looks like these folks (allegedly) went the other way. This is not exactly Ocean's 11 we are talking about here, I just hope they had the presence of mind to grab a Chalupa on the way out.
