Just before noon, he handed the teller a note announcing a robbery. No weapon was displayed. After getting an undisclosed amount of cash, he fled on foot, according to the FBI. No one was injured.

    Not another crime commited by a black homie? When will it end.Not a good way to help battle racial profiling.

    lol are you suprised?

    I think the time has come for the black leaders in chicago,Wright,Jackson,sharpton,and the like,to make a stand and publicly start to call for an end to it,rather than jumping on the bandwagon only when they feel a black person is being held down by whitey.Does anyone agree?

    I think the days of the old west should come back. the teller blasts him with a 12 gauge in his groin that she has hidden, and pointed under the counter for such situations. Two , three times of this situation, and the word will get around to the robbers. If not we weed out the ones who don’t care anyway.Ok, too harsh! how about a trap door that sends him falling into a cage until the cops come. Something that scares thugs, not sending them off to see their friends in a place called jail. They have more amenities than most hard working citizens. When will we see a day that imprisonment or jail truely scares someone. Right now, it is a social club.

    Prisons should be one to a cell, alcatraz style.Any obvious gang affiliation,solitary to the end of thier sentence,violence toward gaurds or other inmates,permanent solitary.

    In that case you would need a jail the size of Illinois just to house all the criminals. I do like the trap door Idea though…one at the tellers station and one at the front door…Just incase he thinks he got away with it…

    Poor disguise. Dang, he was just about to turn his life around, thinking of getting his GED, etc. Sorry Mom..

  • Sundog

    You think his father would recognize him and make him turn himself in.

    • TiredOfRacistPeopleLikeYou

      That not the question. The question is, does yo momma recognize yo daddy?

      • Gordon

        HaHaHaHa.That’s hilarious. But I Don’t get it. Was that a movie?

    I am so sick of these punks and it’s not just Blacks. The Chase bank in Oak Brook was robbed by a White man and last week when I was coming out of Ethan Allen there was a young White male who stole a ring out Jared’s. The bottom line is GET A JOB!
