Something doesn't smell right here. Either the workers for the armored truck company are utterly incompetent or they are in on the heist. My guess is that they were in on the heist. You tell me you are getting robbed and you don't even put up a fight when you are armed yourself?

The word "gun" will be the media's new shark attack or SUV killing machine. It's comical to watch.

Did they get their badge numbers? This type bladant robbery could only be done by professionals. This was organised crime. It was a officer theft. They are all party of the brotherhood.

They should change the name of the armored car company from Dunbar to Dumbbell.

Can't you people read? "The suspect is described as a black man in his 30s, 6 feet tall with a medium-to heavy-build and wearing all-black clothing."

Scary...I always thought that the armored truck services had 2 people in one truck at all times...there should have been another person with this man. The one that is supposed to be watching his back. At least no one was shot.

Did you not read the article before posting. "The suspect is described as a black man in his 30s, 6 feet tall with a medium-to heavy-build and wearing all-black clothing."

Crime city daily occurence--usually two before ten o'clock!

But, the criminals are not as dangerous as the politicos who refuse to punish bad people starting with the city union employees!!

The media lapdog must protect these officers. This was a cop robbery. Just like most bank robberies are. These type crimes are not random as you are lead to beleive. These are trained swat teams etc. Not some gang.

my thoughts exactly!!! I personally am not going to go after someone whom has their hand on the guyn and $70K of cash. Inside job is my guess.

I'm saying inside job myself, no one making 12 bucks an hour is going to fight someone taking someone else's cash when there is a gun pointed at you unless you feel the need to play it up so it don't look like you were in on it.
