WHO'S ROBBING BANKS?

STICK 'EM UP!

  • Print

Doesn't it seem like way more people are robbing banks than should be?

Not that anyone should be robbing banks. I just mean, it seems like a lot lately. We had a couple guys rob two banks in Milwaukee the other day. Then we had a separate incident of another bank hold up. Again... that's just one day in MKE.

I thought robbing banks was hard? If I were going to try to take money that didn't belong to me, I certainly wouldn't start at robbing a bank. They do entire movies on one big heist. It seems to take a lot of logistics, skill, and effort. 

You know... there's an elaborate plan. We gotta get in the building, avoid security, disable cameras, untrip the alarm, getaway with the cash, launder the money... etc, etc.

Of course, there's assembling the right crew... you know, the guys with various specialties. There's the one guy who just cleaned up his life and went straight. He's back with his ex-wife and promised her he's on the up and up. There's the guy who lives for this stuff, and wants just one more shot at glory. There's the new guy whom no one trusts except the guy who brought him in... etc. etc.

No. Real life, some dude in a hooded sweatshirt and dark shades walks into a bank, says "stick 'em up" and walks out with a whole bunch of cash! 

That's not a very good movie.
