    Moral hazzard = corrupt politicians allowing banksters to get away with fraud and theft and often pariicipating. Their main target for their MBS fraud Pensions and Muni. governments. Blame the greedy workers when the fund goes broke not the Banksters.

    Gertie, The baldness of a person can be a great identifier, just like the color or length of hair. If the guy had no hair in the crown of his head, but had hair on the sides, the description would help narrow the possible suspects.

    I'm so glad they have the no sunglasses, no hoodies and no hats rule. It's made a world of a difference!

    Wow, the bank 2 blocks from TPD isn't even safe. I sure wish cops could do something besides put out a press release with photos of a man in disguise.

    To Chief: He who knows not and knows not that he knows not, is foolish, shun him. Tourism is down, having been replace by bank robberies. Tallahassee leads the state in bank robber safety. The bank robbers are in a last minute rush to get our money before the legislature convenes. Competition is tough.

    The robber didn't steal from honest hard working people he robbed a bank . It is amasing how clueless some people are about the banking industry. It must be a pleasure for the banks under the Federal Reserve to steal from clueless minion.
