Sounds like it was an inside/coordinated job. Is it the policy of the bank to give money to robbers if no weapon is brandished? And if he didn't get into a vehicle, couldn't somebody have followed him?

Btw, this is another reason why we need to keep low-income housing and Section Ape out of town.

I make deposits at this branch and there are cameras actually showing your live video while you are standing in line. The accent was probably fake. What happened to the signs banks were posting on their doors requesting that all sunglasses be removed upon entering?

Ja, man, he needed some bread to pay for medical ganja. Poor guy, I bet he had to take a taxi back to BART, cutting into his hard earned booty.

I think we should begin thinking seriously about how the United Nations may be behind these heinous acts, all in an effort to make it easier for them to impose they're agenda on some of the last remaining freedom seekers among us.
