If they can put a pumpkin on the counter, why in the name of stopping bank robberies, isn't there a head level camera on a mini-tripod at the teller's window which shows a 'face'! I can't imagine why they use a long distance overhead camera??

If a 7-11 or a gas station mini-mart can run a video loop... why can't a bank? It's recorded over if there are no incidents, but available if there are?? If they come up with a recognizable photo, these things will stop.

To go a step further, anyone entering a bank with a hat or scarf which masks their face should be suspect.. maybe that's the time to step on the button!

THANKS! I just posted on the other thread - the same concern. Yes, how easy to equate it to a darn decorative seasonal item. Room for fun but not for serious business! ;)
