    Renee, good for you sorry to tell you, and not trying to be a smart***, but these guys aren't even thinking of finding a job. Or it is their 2nd job. They will do it anyway!!! There will always be a certain amount of people who act this way. Right now, they think "It's happening all over, statistics are good, the cops are busy with the last several big incidents, why not?" Soon the public is going to wise up, more of these guys will get popped. As a grown man(50) I get nervous cashing my check, at the gas station, etc. Have been on active duty, bullets flying over my head, things blowing up around me, . People need to talk to family and friends about their actions. Some of you out there know I am talking about you! Get them to stop, or you will be reading about them on here. I am not threatening anyone, just stating what will happen. People are going to get tired of this, sooner or later the public will be armed in some way, bat or gun, and they will be at the wrong end of something.

    I think it would be great if the teller could hit a button with their foot and the floor would fall out like the scene in "Return Of The Jedi". Then they could slide down a ramp into a room that would seal and gas them with tear gas, roll them in plastic wrap and send out an e-mail to the cops to come by and make a pickup. 1 simple law that says, if you are robbing a bank, you forfeit all right to sue the bank for injuries. Thank you for reading..."Better Ideas From Lip Cheese". Ha! Ha!

    What is going on here?? Crime is getting worst. Every day you hear about a bank or convenience store being robbed or someone getting murdered. Times are tough, and people are just not getting the resources to help them find a job so I believe they resort to crime. I am going to pray for these folks and I hope you will to.

    @anonymous: it is technically in the publix shopping center. If you turn into the parking lot entrance before the flash foods you can actually drive straight through into TNB parking lot. In reply to: Posted by: ga Location: ga on Jan 26, 2011 at 09:46 PM anonymous---where did PUBLIX come from, except that they said Publix shopping center...get it right if you're gonna complain....

    @Vicky. The whisperers around town are saying that the bank robberies may have been done by the same person. Thought this is only hear say.
