Use the new police cars to hunt him down, ask the deputy sheriffs to assist. Use the police helicopter to search the area and Use petty cash for donuts and coffee. Then ask the public if they recognise and could identify him and perhaps give his address and name and where he lives ? Cost of investigation, $425,000, cost of publics closure to crime, $1.00. Please add back slapping and merit badges, promotions and awards and meal cost at later date.....

There are so many possible reasons this person decided to do this but none are right. Security just makes it to damn easy. And then posting it on the internet to allow the next criminal know how easy it is. Priceless.

Just because this fool who robbed a bank, does not make every other adult teen or kid LAZY or DISRESPECTFUL! We raise our kids to be hardworking law abiding and most importantly CARING people. While I know some parents do enable their kids, Please do not Pile us all in 1 Bag. As with Sandy Storm, that is a great example of just how many GOOD n DECENT people are around with so much Love it blows me away. Maybe you should not write things like treating people with respect, since you just Disrespected alot of us "GOOD PEOPLE"..
