Congratulation to all the local police departments.

But what about the money? Anybody find that?

I wish we could hear this man's story from his probation officer or someone at the VA.

Glad no one at the bank suffered any harm. I use that branch regularly and the people who work there are terrific.

Congratulations to all police forces in working together and detaining and arresting the hood. What in the name of goodness is a fifty year old thinking about robbing a bank at that stage in his life!

VA needs housing for OUR Vets...this man is only one of thousands who are now transients. Male and females also. Sad.
