The robber was armed with a handgun and ordered the bank customers to lie face-down on the ground, Commander Ron Saunier said.

Officers ordered the man to get out of the vehicle multiple times, over a period of about a minute, Saunier said. The suspect did not comply with orders to get out.

According to Saunier, the suspect made a "threatening maneuver” and an officer believed he had a gun. Saunier said it was difficult to see into the car because the windows were tinted.

Furtive movement shooting... I'm sure it will be ruled justified.

Don't rob banks.....

And you won't get shot...


seems like a simple rule of thumb to follow.

If you wait to see the gun, you'll see what comes out of the gun.

Good shoot.

If you don't want to get shot, don't rob banks.

If you must rob banks, then do what the police tell you when they catch you. At that point it's game over anyway.

I suppose somewhere around rule 6 or 7 of armed bank robbery is "Don't get rid of your gun until you're absolutely sure you got away."

Reminds me of an old timer I knew once who apprehended a bank robber after a foot chase. He had the suspect cornered in a drainage ditch. He was kind of winded and hadn't put the suspect into cuffs yet. The robber told the Deputy he was not going to go back to prison and he was going to take the Deputy's duty weapon. The Deputy got on the radio and informed Dispatch that it was almost quitting time so he was just going to go ahead and kill the suspect and let second shift deal with it. Dispatch laughed out loud over the radio. The robber immediately surrendered.

No, he wasn't joking. The old guy had no sense of humor at all.

Bank robbers need to understand that getting shot by crotchety old timers who want to be home in time for Jeopardy is an occupational hazard.

No fucks given. He robbed a bank with a gun then the cops confronted him and he refused to follow orders. No way for the cops to know whether he ditched the gun or not or WTF he's doing besides not what they tell him.

Don't want to get shot by cops? Don't rob banks with guns.

If this MENSA candidate wanted the police to have better situational awareness, maybe he shouldn't have ordered everyone to the ground inside the bank? It might be hard to get solid info when everyone's on the ground wondering if they're going to be the first to take a bullet to the head if this psycho doesn't get his way.

Oh, and if "LE just isn't trustworthy" then why are you trusting them when they say he didn't have a gun?
