    Do we get a bank robbery every week now?

      I was thinking the same thing, before I even clicked the link.

      At least this time it’s a white guy.

      Maybe they should do a story about how many bank robbings we have had in the past year.

      1. @see bs says:

        think you maybe nort reading the stories to well on them – I’ll wager 70% have been white guys. If you had a racial overtone to you wanted to toss out it didn’t work out to well. lol

        1. check your facts says:

          Not true. Because the last 5 bank robberies that occurred were from one black man.

    Ya never hear about bank robbers getting caught.

      Only after the 8th or more bank robbery. FBI waits for a snitch, plenty of them out there and in prison.

  3. Roni says:

    And how many haven’t been solved.

    Funny how you can walk into a Casino and they can tell what color underwear you have on, or if you slip an extra cookie into your pocket at the buffet, but someone walks into a bank, robs it, and this is the picture they ask the public to help identify with? Let’s get with it guys. You charge enough, buy a real camera.

    1. Research says:

      Then they couldn’t over “estimate” the amount taken. Why is it always always always a undisclosed amount? They know exactly to the penny how much money is in each drawer. If you know a banker, ask that question and you’ll realize why those cameras are technology from the 90’s.

    They should install contraption doors on the floor. Then you could press a button and he’d fall in. Then he would have to face the Rancor!

    1. jackactionhero says:

      Careful, the Rancor can be defeated by using a Force Leap and wedging a large Leg Bone into Rancor’s throat.

      Great idea as long as no Jedis attempt a bank robbery. ;-p

    Everyone who mades or tanns buckskin jackets will get a friendly phone call this week. He should be easy to catch now.

    I remember a time when all banks had at least one guard at the bank. Now maybe they need to bring that back with him in an elevated position overlooking everything with assault rifle, think of the jobs it would create if all the banks did that.
