This guy is obviously not citizen of the year but all of you spouting your racism are sad. Picking on his mother and his name? Is this the 5th grade? Get a life!
Citizen of the Year??

Racism??? Look at the Lehigh County Jail ??? How many white folks are incarcerated as compared to African Americans and Hispanic Americans??

His mother?? If he had a mother who spent the time to raise her son like other law abiding citizens, he would not have ended up where he is.

Get a life?? We could all have better lives if the laws in the Commonwealth of Pa were changed to include the death penalty for any crime including the use of a gun, knife, or drugs. Anyone who disagrees is a member of the hood or a low life drug user.

This suspect should be incarcerated witout bail and sentenced to death by lethal injection if he is found guilty.

To incarcerate him will only sharpen his felony skills.

Now that's funny.
I don't understand the name Markeith. Is it a hybrid of Mark and Keith? A merger of some sorts? Could it be that Mark and Keith were both in the running as the birth father?
I am certain that some genius will chime in and decry the racism in all of the witty statements.
Hehehehe :) Both in the running as birth father :) That's a great one

What the article does not tell you is that the poor teller was on her first day working alone, and quit the job that day, this piece of scum scarred her in a way that she will never fully heal from. On top of that he jumped a counter with a loaded gun, and pointed it at the people behind the counter, where is the attempted murder charge? one wrong move and someone could have been killed, yet this piece of scum will be back on the streets in a few years with more connections then ever and less to lose. This is why we need more educated responsible people committed to carrying a concealed gun every day, people that take the time to learn how to use that tool against scum like that, a few dozen of them end up dead and they will learn the risk does not merit the reward.

I'm gonna agree with him going BACK to jail where he just came from and deserves to be....However the racist comments are uncalled for. White people do the same sh!t if not worse at times. His mother is a Christian woman and don't need to be spoken about.
We can only raise our children the best we can, but when the Streets get ahold of them and the devil we then can only pray for them!!!!

I feel bad for his daughter who only knows a man who's only ever been in jail.

Pointing a gun at someone is simple assault - shooting someone with a gun can draw an attempted murder charge but they don't always stand up in trial. Maybe you have an education but you must have missed some days in law class.

if you want gun crime to go down you redefine any assault with a firearm as attempted murder, and suddenly the risk will outweigh the reward.

Oh I'm sorry, I thought you were previously talking about real laws, not your imaginary ones. So to answer your original question about why the bank robber wasn't charged with attempted murder, that's because he didn't do anything that fits the definition of attempted murder according to the real laws.

And if you want gun crime to go down then all the judges need to do is begin sentencing people appropriately when they are found guilty. The laws allow for a lot more penalty than the bleeding heart libs are willing to slam the maggots with.

A true Democrat is one who believes that our civil liberties are worth fighting for, and the 2nd amendment is a civil liberty. Again I am a 2nd amendment democrat, not a liberal.

I grew up with this kid... To be honest I was a juvenile delinquent and stole cars with him... I was rehabilitated, he never got that opportunity. I'm not gonna speak about race or prejudice, but poverty and lack of opportunity led Webb ("Pip" if u really knew him :-) to stay with criminal activity. I went to college (I am white) he's in prison...
