    Looks? Did I miss something? Are we talking about the same person? Cause that man is NOT good looking. Also, he was receiving a disability check? SERIOUSLY? I'm sure he really deserved that one. Again, drug testing for government assistance should be mandatory. Period!

    This man was not jobless and in need of money, he chose to walk away from a wonderful family in the name of Crack. The Camero was a rental that he paid for from a disability check. He is a career crinimal, and deserves to go to federal prison where the 50/50 does not apply. Maybe he will get some help for whatever would make a man hold up a busy bank at a busy time. I'm glad he's off the streets, because what would have happened if he had robbed an individual and they wouldn't give up their property. Who ever was the informant that lead to his quick arrest, I say thank you. My question is why would they even consider allowing bail for him on a federal charge, with his record of grand theft? Whats wrong with our system? But the good news is, he has burned all his bridges and I doubt ANYONE will bail him out. Those looks arent gonna help him anymore, except finding a good mate in prision!

    You know the economy is bad when a white guy robs a bank and gets caught. One thing I can say for him is that he didn't use a weapon to do it. Thugs coming in with handguns blazing are a different story.

    Who cares if he is white black yellow or pink? The dude robbed a bank and put fear into an innocent teller and you all are worried about the color of his skin?? If you all havent noticed it's 2011, time to grow up.

    This same guy robbed Quality Inn and Suites on Apalachee parkway 2 weeks ago. TPD found crack in his room and they said they could not make the arrest and let him go right up front of the property. All this could have been avoided had TPD arrested him. He was seen on video 2 separate times jumping over the counter and taking money out of cash register totaling in $500

    A white guy! And he got caught! If that ain't the story of the year, then I don't know what is.

    It is so funny that whenever a white person commits a crime that the word THUG is never brought up. This man is a thug, a low life thug!
