why aren’t banks doing things to protect this, like installing bullet proof glass or other safety features?
VOS IZ NEIAS!!!
Wild Wild West
Same old news…
They just took down all the glass to make banking more personal
Banks have become more like hotel lobby’s and lounges. It’s an open invitation to these crooks.
same old same old!!!!!!
If I pass a note to my bank teller saying “1 large coffee, cream and sugar, please,” is the teller suddenly going to jump up and run to get me a coffee?
So why do they just hand over the money when they get a note? Tell the guy to actually brandish the weapon, then he’ll get the money.
If shop rite which is a supermarket could have a armed police officer or an armed guard, than a bank ,were the money is,should also have an armed guard or 2 !
If shop rite which is a supermarket could have a armed police officer or armed guard than a bank were the money is should have 1 or 2 armed guards!
The bank doesn’t have money. Shop rite has!!!!!
To num. 9 what if he realy has a gun he might just shoot you dont take chances.
In a study published in the ny times it states that 95 percent of these bank robbers don’t actually have weapons on them !next time the tellers should just say no!
Mistama he is robbing to give to the poor
to #12 ,the famous bank robber Percy Sutton when asked by the judge why re robs banks he answered because that is were the money is! That is what a bank is about! On a side note.I once saw a sign in a new york deli ,Banks dont make sandwiches we dont cash checks !
#9 Your kidding me right?!? I’m a teller at a bank and if you think that if someone hands me a note that says “I have a gun give me your money” that im going to ask him to prove it??!! If someone stopped you in the street and said they had a gun and that the wanted your wallet your going to need to see it before you hand over your money?? That might be the most idiot thing I’ve read on here yet!!….. Thats how people get hurt. No ones trying to be hero. The money isnt even ours, it’s insured… My LIFE isnt worth how ever much money they wind up getting away with…. I’d hand over my personal money if the wanted it. Personally I’d rather not know if they have a gun or not. It’s a scary enough thought without the gun being put in my face! You don’t know how desperate the person trying to rob you might be. Why aggravate the situation?!?
I guess I would have to agree with you. You’ve been there, I haven’t.
But it just seems lately that so many bank robberies have been taking place, that any old “Joe Shmoe” figures he’ll give it a shot with a note. Sometimes i feel that if we shake the guy up a bit, he’ll fold like a cheap camera.
