I am glad to hear that US Bank and citizens of Minnesota stepped up to help this man.

Old or not, rich or poor there is no reason this street ape stole this guys money. Other then he is a complete loser.

I can't wait for him to be arrested, maybe the cops can take him on a good long "ride" over a bumpy road before the get to the police station.

Another reason not to be flashing money around in public. Do your business, put the money away, and handle the cash in private.

Too many predators just waiting to take advantage of you.

If there is any justice, it won't come from the Court system. They would probably let him plead to speeding or over the center line.

I don't think the man was "flashing" the money around. And regardless of who was around to see his withdrawl, the point is- he didn't deserve this. Thankfully on the flip side, there are actually some nice people left in this world who have hearts.

Everyone is sad, but let us not beat it into the ground. There are other news
worthy events that would fill the repetitive stories slot.

We know nothing about the person that stole the cash, however, there is one thing for sure, and that is, desperate people do desperate things strictly out of desperation. There is an up side to the snatch and run, there was no one hurt, and the money can be and already has been replaced, a life is not replaceable.

Why did you read the story if you knew the topic and were tired of it? Much less actually take the time to comment?

If "Justice" is done, it will be handled by the perps fellow inmates. Most incarcerated men, even violent offenders, have a line that you dare not cross. This guy will get more than $300 worth of bumps and bruises inside and, more important, will be near the bottom of the prisoners pecking order, ie: no respect.

I'm glad to see that the PP had the decency to not include the alleged perpetrators picture or description this time. We can all agree that it would be racist and intolerant to do so.
Outraged is right

Yes, I've been outraged since this cowardly robbery occurred. Just like I have been since Robert Bye preyed on the elderly via his home invasions (catch him soon please). I'm outraged that these repeat offender animals continue to get back on the street with our liberal a ss judges letting them off easy. I'm outraged that an elderly man the age of my mother, undoubtedly a veteran, is preyed upon by some sc um probably from Detroit that hasn't probably worked a day in his life who continues the downward spiral of a parasitic culture nurtured by our welfare magnet state. I'm outraged by the St. Paul Pioneer press when they don't give a good description (i.e. black, white etc) of suspects because apparently it may not be politically correct. I'm really outraged when the SPPP deletes the online comments on these articles when they apparently become too 'unpolitically' correct as people express their outrage at recurring crimes of these lowlife pos. I'm outraged at liberals who can't see the light of what is really happening in St. Paul. I'm comforted by the 40 caliber pistol that I carry because I'm fed up ; I'm outraged by those who don't think I have a right to do that as our country goes down the tubes. Wake the eff up you pandering pansies who've ruined my country.

Whoa, back off big guy, does getting your undies in a bunch mean anything to you, well if it does
try not to let it happen. I am a stutter reader which means I have to re-read a few times before I get
it, then I like to make comment when I think certain articles become redundant,and yep! this one is.
And luckily no one was hurt.
