The money is insured. Guards would be an added cost to protect money that you are going to get back from the insurance company anyway. They take other steps to limit the amount of cash at the teller stations, so the loss is less. When a robbery happens, their primary concern is the safety of employees and customers, so they want to get a good ID on the robber, but get him out of the bank and away from the innocent civilians as fast as they can. The very last thing they want is a guard shooting it out with a robber inside the bank. Guards will deter some robbers, but not all, and the ones not afraid of an armed guard are probably the most dangerous ones.

yes, that Larry Siegel, he is a well read man. Sorry bud, there are a multitude of reasons for more robberies and although recividivists are responsible for alot of crimes, there are a multitude of those who are entering into this profession because of a lack of opportunities. Your classrooms 26th edition book is still outdated. Imagine disagreeing with those who actually catch these robbers, interview and prosecute them. When was the last time he saw a real bad guy face to face, next time might be his first. Those who can-do, those who can't-teach.
