Hello??? What gun? Who pointed a gun at anyone? I must have missed something in the reported story, because I never saw it in any of the recent bank robberies? Please don’t add to a story when the facts are clear.

If you are talking about my comment, it was in the context of generalities of robbing a bank and the stress put onto a teller.

Why is it that banks have bad cameras, my cell phone camera would do a better job.

These big banks having been robbing us, the taxpayers, for a long time and none of them are in jail so part of me says it about time someone robbed them, but then I guess that is not right.

I can agree with you to a point; that point is the safety of the bank employees. The outright theft that the big banks got away with is criminal; did anyone see Senator Warren asking the banking committee members why it is no one has ever been arrested for all of the scams the banks put over on our nation? While you make the valid point that the banks did get away with robbery, I just cannot see how having bank employees being confronted by a possibly armed lunatic is somehow equal. Good sentiment, unfortunately bad comparison.

Bob and I don’t always see eye to eye but I’m with him 100% on this.

Think of it this way. How would you feel if that was your husband or wife that was the bank teller on the receiving end of the gun being pointed at them?

Old saying (corny but) two wrongs don’t make a right.

They got away with it because our elected officials let them. Think of the “settlement” with the states over the housing scandal. Heck, “scandal” is too soft, the “out and out THEFT and lying” the banks got away with, then proceeded to BRIBE the judicial branch silent by paying off the legislative and executive branches of the States. No need to do that with the Fed, because “they is us” in that case.

How is it everyone worried about “big oil” when Bush was in office (and rightly so, think Saudi’s); yet no one seems concerned with Obama “Mr. Big Banker’s best friend in the history of ever” putting in more bankers than all other presidents combined? I mean, is it the Executive Branch or just Goldman-Sachs/DC branch?
