    Yet another unmasked bank robber. He pulled his mask down after he got to the counter and demanded money. Is this trend continuing because it works? I'm not complaining, mind you, but it seems odd, almost too impulsive. Easier to identify, but still have to nab them once they get away. I hope they aren't getting much money
