    Why is it okay for the feds to rip us off all day long, All year long and its not okay for us to rip them off . We are considered criminals when we do it , Shouldn't they be considered criminals to ?

    Bank robberies are getting out of hand. RBC in Creedmore was robbed yesterday...Carter Bank in Henderson was robbed today...RBC in Oxford was robbed in April...RBC in Henderson was robbed in December...Suntrust in Raleigh...where does it end? These criminals need something to deter them. I agree with public hanging or bringing back the electric chair. Something has to be done.

    what folk are not realizing is that criminals no longer care. if you have nothing of value such as hope, freedom or a percieved future..then you have nothing to lose. 'you' dont do crime because you have things that you value losing. your job, your house, your standing in the community..whatever, but if you dont have percieve or have those things, then its on like donkey kong.

    the fear of incarceration or punishment is enough to keep you and i on the straight and narrow...but todays criminals fear nothing.

    my vote is to bring back public hangings.

    Does anyone know how many times has that branch been robbed?

    It was also robbed a few months ago, which resulted in the chase that ended just inside the beltline off Capital. What makes it so special? Easy exits? Helpful employees?

    There is a Wachovia in the same shopping center, and a BB&T sout of there, but I don't remember seeing a story about them being robbed.

    Which is the bigger crime? Him robbing the bank or doing it while wearing a Darius Miles Cavs jersey?

    Funny a friend of mine was in the Drive through of the bank when it happened and so she couldn't get her transaction processed. We've joked with her for the last day and a half.

    I am sure he read about that one guy the feds are putting up billboards about. Shows his face plain as day in multiple states, still they have no clue who he is.

    It amazes me how they prance right in there w/nothing hiding their identity at all. Do they think none of their friends or family will turn them in? They are crazy. Right after that crimstoppers reward annoucement goes up, they're gonna get caught.
