Don't rob your bank

Maybe all the crooks are BOA customers and they don't want to rob a bank where they have an ATM card.

Reminds me of a scene from HBO's excellent new comedy

series "Barry", about a hitman who accidentally stumbles into a yearning to be an actor. His mentor advises against pursuing it, suggesting it would be awkward to confront his latest target and be recognized as the guy in the chicken-restaurant commercial. Barry's hilarious reaction is in the trailer, but I won't spoil it.

Just wondering...

If downtown banks are held up, does that mean uptown banks get held down?

FYI banks are not allowed to

By on

FYI banks are not allowed to have armed security guards inside of their buildings which is why they get robbed so often...and the armed security guards that stand outside of the banks i'm told are not allowed to take any real action against bank robbers other than call the police.

Insurance

Because the couple hundred the robbers get is covered by insurance and a small fraction of the loss if an innocent person at the bank got shot.
