    Still gets me as to why Banks and credit unions have not put up bullet proof glass and the steel doors at the teller windows?? Oh, we want to be more customer friendly and not make customers feel wierd. Please! I would feel just as good if not better if they were installed, knowing that the person in behind or in front of me isn't going to be the next moron who tries to rob the bank. Oh, but it is insured...yeah, at whos expense?? We have bank roberries all the time and only a few are caught. Place a guard back in the banks/credit unions and fix the dang security at the teller windows. You go through the drive thru and it has bullet proof glass...why not inside to? one word for all this...DUMB!

    Could this be the fault of the fired /layed off state workers? Possibly, With the new drug policy and the cuts , less state workers are buying dope, putting the dealers out of business. Just saying.

      Is it the fired workers? Is it because they cannot pass a drug test? Is it because there are fewer state workers buying illegal drugs? Those are your words. Is that the way you really feel "Ex state workers are robbing by proxy?" I would just love to respond to this with the numbers, but you threw it out-there like a bunch of garbage. If I had to take a wild guess, my answer would be NO. Yes, I have done work for the State of Florida, and the State of Georgia. The business at hand is do you need to rob a bank, if you face a layoff? The answer, my freinds is NO. Persuit of a craft or an occupation needed is basic! Don't blame this on an executive, or a legislature, that must respond to your own situation. Thanx.

    A sniper in an elevated booth with a .22 LR would get the job done without a lot of fuss or messy cleanup.

        Does it really take THAT much longer to type "Thanks" properly as opposed to the illiterate-looking "Thanx?" Just asking.

    Start sentencing these thugs to 20 year minimums and stop the little slap on then wrist "justice." The prisons seem to have revolving doors and these thugs can't wait to go back in.

    Atleast they still have the cameras, but what ever happened to everything else? In the old days, banks had an armed security guard, or an off duty cop stationed inside. And they used exploading dye packs. Why not use them everytime? They used one last year (Same bank, I think), and at the very least the robber can't use any of the money he stole.

    Amazing. These banks spend huge amounts on security, and can not even get photos of the thug that are useful. I think my 4 year old grandson could do a camera system that would get a better shot that what these banks give to you press guys. Do they really tink anyone will recognize the thug from these long distance photos? Just unbelievable!
