Good luck to the Menlo Park Police. The PAPD haven't found the guys who robbed the B of A in the Stanford Shopping Center yet.

Serve the banks right for not having efficient procedures to either preventing such incidents or effective follow up . Don't they have a secret button anywhere?

banks are told not to press the buttons until AFTER the guys leave because of possible hostage/shoot-out situations occurring if the police arrive when they are still in the bank... its for everyones safety - even if it takes a few days or weeks to catch the crooks atleast they do it when the bad guys least expect it so everyone is safer.

Police does not have to storm into the bank right away, but pressing the button as soon as possible shoudl give police a chance to prepare for chasing, block roads, etc. The fact that so many bank robberies have been successful lately and criminals got away tells me that something does not work right in the process.
