Compliant Miscreant

When the man entered the bank in Columbus, Ohio, wearing a dark jacket with a hood and got in line for the teller, he had his hood up covering most of his face. When he got to the front of the line, the teller pointed out the bank has a “No hats, no hoods” policy. The man pulled the hood down to reveal his face — and handed the teller a note saying he had a gun and to give him all the money or he’d shoot. The teller complied with the demand, and the bank’s security camera got clear photos of the man’s face. The robber has, so far, escaped capture. (JW/Columbus Dispatch) ...So, what they really need is a “No Robberies Allowed” policy tellers can point to.
