Glad no one was hurt!! And BTW- I wish MY bank was open that late! Went today at 4:15 and they were closed! ON A FRIDAY!! They are open till 600 on Thursdays ONLY!! EVERY other day till 4:00. Not very helpful for working people who get paid on Fridays! Hope the police get some leads leading to an arrest!

That branch is the BEST. Sorry to hear about robbery. I was there only minutes before the robbery. Literally minutes before. Sorry I wasn't able to be there at the same time. Things would have been different. Stay safe

Our revolving door judicial system is NOTHING for these scumbags to be afraid of...And if they do get SOME time, it's a ACLU approved cell with access to air conditioned gyms, cable TV and religoiusly acceptable meals...Who, pray tell, demanded these 'terms'???....Not the conservatives!!!
