    ""People are getting desperate America needs jobs the worse the economy gets the more crimes will be committed."

    Right, because nobody ever robbed banks until recently.

    I'm surprised no one has accused President Obama of being the robber.

    It is offensive that people feel so oppressed or insecure that they cant even mention a correct description? I have friends of every race/nationalities, and descriptions. For crying out loud, if a bank is robbed we talk and all ofus say...what did he look like, was he black, white, what? What was he driving, wearing, was healone? How about...5 Ws who what where when why and sometimes how? Useful reportin gisnt all about the headlines....or isnit?
