    "Oh a man with handgun and he is robbing a bank, lets catch him right away before he does more. The Fairview Road area is really going down. Oh wait..... he is not african american!!!"

    Do you have an issue? The man is a criminal, they have great photos of him from security cameras, he'll be caught and in jail in no time. Just another statistic of stupidity, another stupid person jailed.

    "All I am saying is that there is so much flak when an african american does a crime of this nature or other things is that most people that post tend to say the the area in which it happens is going down and everyone gets up in arms about hanging somebody or shooting them or being afraid to go in that area and they are probably doing more crimes somewhere so I am just wondering why there are not any more postings than what is posted here. Then I realized, the man is not african american so I guess he is pretty much harmless to some folks. That's all!"

    Wow. Sounds like someone has a race issue. This guy is a thug and deserves to be locked up for the rest of his life like any other punk. Who cares what color he is. Anyone that commits a violent felony needs to be locked up for life or exterminated.

    I think banks want a certain amount of robbery otherwise they would install the double magnetic doors they do in the rural towns. It works and if the band is robbed the bandit is stuck between the two doors until authorities arrive.

    Haha! These robbers are idiots. The images of this guy are clear enough that I believe he will be caught in no time.
