    Sure. At least half for the bank and the rest for him.

    Ditto. Cordon off the scene as best you can. Check for additional assailants. Check for injured parties. Don't touch anything. Your responsibility at this point is to victims, not to the money. A lone police officer would do the same.

    Crazy thought.

    I always wondered if that trick would work when a bank robber is trying to elude the police by fleeing in a car. Throwing cash out the freeway would probably cause a roadblock from all the "honest" drivers slamming on the brakes to get some of the cash.

    If you are going to chase the bank robber, I hope you are:

    1) Armed
    2) Trained in arrest and control tactics
    3) Have a radio (Not a cell phone) that you can make brief statements to someone in contact with the police on, and are doing so.

    The reason I say radio and not cell phone is because the amount of attention a 911 dispatcher demands from you will most likely get you killed. Having a 911 dispatcher yelling at you to "calm down" while you're chasing someone, etc, may get you a bullet in the gut.
    My sentiments exactly.
    Was he armed? Since he wrestled with the suspect, probably not.
    Was he trained in arrest and control tactics? Um, apparently not. If he was, he was not very good at them.
    Even getting on a cell phone would be nice, but it sounds like he was the Lone Ranger acting Tonto to save the day.
    Bottom line, DON'T CHASE THE GUY.

    What we have here is a "total lack of preparedness".

    What he's doing is tampering with evidence in a federal investigation. The bad guy touched them! They may have fingerprints on them! Well, maybe. They were disturbed now.

    Remember the last article about a security guard chasing a bank robber? Off-duty cop.

    If you are going to chase the bank robber, I hope you are:

    1) Armed
    2) Trained in arrest and control tactics
    3) Have a radio (Not a cell phone) that you can make brief statements to someone in contact with the police on, and are doing so.

    Sheesh.
    Yeah, because that's what he was doing - enforcing the littering policy. Right.

    Bank Robber Escapes Security by Tossing Bills

    Jersey City, NJ:
    A man robbed a bank by holding up a threatening note to the teller. The security guard engaged the robber after the teller pushed the alarm button, but he wrestled free and ran. The suspect threw a few $20 bills from the bag and the security guard stopped to pick them up while the suspect got away.

    A) Don't engage the guy in the lobby, if that's what you did.
    B) Don't run after the bozo, you idiot. You're lucky he didn't honor his promise to shoot you.
    C) You're already in fresh pursuit. Which is more important? Finish catching bad guy or enforce the no littering policy?
    Sheesh.
