You would think that the picture quality would be better in a bank.

Nothing left in Detroit for the thugs to rob/steal. This type of crime is going to be on the rise. Too bad the teller wasn't armed.

Yeah, Luther's Fan! Then they could have had a shoot-out like at the OK Corral! With other customers diving for cover and maybe some of them getting shot, too! Too bad he just got away with money and nobody getting killed. How boring.

Well your part of the problem MoJo. We certainly don't want to withhold anything from the criminal. Give them what they want; all your money, your jewelry, etc... Gun owners who carry know when and how to deal with these situations. Just because one is armed does not mean they can shoot; they have to consider the circumstances. Here's a great video for ya. I suppose you would have preferred to give up your hard earned money and other valuables rather than see the poor thugs get injured. http://abcnews.go.com/US/florida-man-71-shoots-alleged-robbers-internet-cafe/story?id=16800859

Whoever posts these photos needs to lighten the picture, because I can never see the persons face. If they are a jpg file, I can copy and load down to my app and lighten the pic, if not, there is no point to even posting it, because you can't see it.
