How much does anyone want to bet that this man will be identified, arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced and shipped off to prison long before Kelly Gearhart ever sees the inside of a jail cell, let alone a courtroom?

All tellers are told to just comply and give the cash. There was always an emergency button below the teller window to activate a law enforcement response. Also used to be that every teller has a bundle of marked bills to give out. It’s been many years, so I do not know if these measures still exist. It is just not worth risking anyone’s life over a few thousand dollars or less. Teller’s have a limit on the amount of cash they can keep in their drawer. No one is getting rich from robbing a bank. Only the banksters do that.

We are continually robbed by banks…..and the problem is?

Banks decided to just give the money up without a fight. The criminals know this–easy target.

That fight would not turn out well people might die needlessly. Give him the damn money. Live to tell the grandkids about the time you got robbed while working on a Saturday. And that she never worked on Saturday again after that and she has been fine.

Blessings and thank God everyone is safe and sound.

I totally agree. Banks are most definitely NOT worth dying for.

tug on the goat, maybe that’s false, too. now i know why banks used to be closed on Saturdays
