  • Bank Robbery

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18658432/

    The thieves wrested a gun from one security guard and leaped across the counter at Illinois Service Federal Savings and Loan while a third robber stood guard, police said. A second security guard who began firing at the robbers was shot.

    That sucks big time...

    Any and all bank security should be outfitted with at a minimum Level II body armor, (you want me to safeguard your cash, gimme a bulletproof vest outta your pocket, and a belt clip remote transmitter tied into the panic button frequency the teller's buttons use...

    I dunno, but believe you me, If I ever got assigned a detail involving large quantities of cash currency, I'd have level IIIA armor, an M4 carbine,
    Rem 870 for a backup firearm, and a direct line to God...

    Why is it (at least to me) that when given an assignment that involves large sums of money, that banking institutions seem to settle for the obscure and often addle minded 65 to 70 year old senior citizen as a Security deterrent? Me? If I was a bank President, I'd damn near have 40mm BOFORS mounted at the exits of the bank....

      Your post about the old guard (no offense intended) reminds me of the old bank guard on the Andy Griffith show with the old revolver that breaks in two pieces when he pulls the trigger.

        I have often wondered myself about the armored car and bank guards, I mean you entrust hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars to these guys and girls but you pay them mimimum wage, give them outdated equipment and hire from the bottom of the barrel in most cases.

        I guess that it's really all just for 'show' anyway, is'nt the money federaly insured? So I guess they really don't mind if a few million get lost and a few "guards" get greased in the process.

          And on top of that they want you to have perfect credit.. I got rejected for an armored car guard job (paying 8 bucks an hours) back in 96 because of 2 dings from medical expenses on my credit report (they didn't tell me that "officially", but the interviewer who called me told me to "look at my credit report"), but the next week I was hired by the Dallas sheriff's office as a Detention Officer making 12 an hour with the same credit dings....
