Poor dumb fool should go get an MBA, work on wall street and steal millions with the stroke of a pen. He'd be due for a hella'va bonus about now.

If he has robbed multiple banks, there surely are more photos. Can those be posted? Different angles and full body shots will make ID much easier.

"Come on, how do you get from Sunnyvale to Los Altos in 20 minutes during lunch hour? It's two guys."

(In a soft voice)- That is exactly what the robber wants you to believe.
It's two guys instead of one.

Google Maps shows 3.0 miles or 9 minutes between 1655 Hollenbeck Avenue and 1001 Fremont Avenue, via Homestead and Foothill. Maybe he was trying for Guinness book of world records.

Whenever a criminal is identified as black or latino, dozens of right-wing commenters in these forums decry how integration is ruining our neighborhoods. If the criminal is white or asian, the only comments are about how efficient he is?
