    Banks rob people everyday: securities fraud, mortgage fee fraud, pension fraud ,foreclosure fraud , document fraud. They will steal from anyone ,the mortgage fee fraud in Georgia was aimed at military families . $120 million settlement and not one fraudster went to jail .

      Based on my own moral compass, just because he, she, or they steal doesn't mean I have to. If I found a wallet on the sidewalk, I would try to return it to the owner. They may need the money more than I do.

    If they can identify the bad guy THAT quickly, sounds as if he should have already been locked away...for good.

      I agree...if they know who he is, there's a safe bet that he has a record. Just go to his last known address and pick him up. If he's not there, I'm sure someone there will know where he is and will probably narc on him for the crimestoppers reward money...they probably have a healthy drug habit to support!

        Narc is a derogatory term. I prefer the phrase 'man up' and protect your neighborhood.

      Maybe the 3 hots and a cot was a better lifestyle than what he could manage on the outside. I understand Federal pens are better than the state-run prisons.

    Wait. I'm thinking this poor college graduate is a product of his environment. Doesn't FAMU offer a 8-year degree program for this "skill"?

    Too bad looks like he is busted . I would like to see honest thieves get away with some FDIC money instead of the politically conneted fascist. Corzine, Rahm, Newt, Clinton ect.

      Put yourself behind the teller line one time and let us know how it feels to be robbed. You are an idiot for even saying that.

      Well, it sounds like you are a total idiot since it could have cost someone their life for the robber to get some FDIC money.....and I bet if you were robbed you would not be singing this same tune. Just Me.

      hey Einstein, FDIC insures a depositor's funds if the bank fails, they don't insure robbed funds...
  • by anon on May 23, 2012 at 05:06 PM
    Is this the same person that robbed another bank a while back? I am referring to the guy that was wearing the oversized NY Yankees hat that some of us thought was wearing eye makeup and drawn on facial hair?
