sue the banks?....gee i wonder who you are going to vote for. how about using your sense. you don't have to use an ATM if YOU determine it is unsafe. maybe they should charge you with trespassing on their property.

Hmmm..... One ATM crime for every 3.5 million transactions may seem "rare", but with 42 million transactions a day, that's 12 crimes a day or more than 4,000 per year. Not that "rare".

Does anyone at this paper do anything other than regurgitate corporate spin? Of course the banks would call them "rare". Actually, they'd prefer you didn't think about them at all.

Blacks rarely call themselves negroes. Whites make themselves untrustworthy by being fake and acting like other people to make them look bad. Dammit, we and the media do a good enough job making blacks look bad without you guys' two cents.

Yeah...I want to leave my safety up to a BANK?? Get real. I would rather have my gun and have it be in a well lit area. I always drive around the ATM area to determine if I should stop or keep going..

The article focused on people being abducted somewhere else, then taken to the ATM. that is obviously different than "staying alert" while using an ATM.
besides, you need not worry. who the hell is going to rob a redneck, they spend all money on their trucks and beer.
You obviously don't cumm here much, shouldn't you be on your way to the Cuban gay pride parade?

You have nerve, f**king racist f*ck! What about the black people being robbed at ATM's?
Yeah, here I am asking you a question like you can think logically.
Hmph.
Um, ok.

Can we please stop ignoring reality here? Most blacks are criminals. Therefore, you need to be aware of them when you see them.

"Investigators from the Palm Beach County and Broward County sheriff's offices and other local police departments say there is no reason for them to track ATM robberies. The crimes are just too infrequent, they say." We have a serial killer or killers running loose in Florida who specialize in this crime pattern and "there is no reason" to track the crime pattern? When was the last time you heard a homicide detective, investigating a serial killer, say anything other than, "we will search everywhere for this killer"? What's wrong with this picture?

Mr. Cain and Mr. Butler walked into a Casino to a ATM teller. What is wrong with this picture? Also they both got into a taxie cab, another look at this picture. There is something wrong again. You mean to tell people that Mr. Cain couldn't alert the cab driver or anyone at the Casino while having a man with a gun? And after givng money to Butler, Cain then walks away. Why didn't he walk away after the first transaction at the Casino? This story of Mr. Cain's abduction should be puzzeling to anyone. I wonder if Mr. Cain had been gambling at the Casino earlier?
I was in Hollywood to cover a sporting event. I do not gamble. Butler forced his way into my hotel room and after stealing my cash at gunpoint, went through my belongs questioning me how much each item was worth as well as questioning me on how much credit limit each credit card had. Mind you, all while pointing a loaded gun to my head.
I know it was loaded because he showed me by popping out the bullet in the chamber saying, "This ain't no toy gun. This is for real."
He forced me to call a cab to come directly to my hotel room, not the lobby. He then took my hoodie and put it on with the hood up, inserted the gun in the front pocket that extends across the front of the hoodie with it pointed at me at all times. He also said, "If you say anything to the driver or even look at me I'll kill you and him and drive the fucking cab home."
While we waited for the cab he wanted to take me to ATMs to withdraw cash. All I could think of was getting to a public place. I said we should go the Hard Rock and it's not uncommon to max out credit cards hoping he'd bite on going to a place with extensive security.
It was warm out and the guy stole my hoodie, had it on with the hood up. I commented to the cab driver that it was really warm tonight. That's all I was willing to risk saying at the moment. I felt as long as the cash continued I'd still be alive and hopefully along the way an opportunity would present itself to escape.
It was late or early in the morning and he got out of the cab on the same side as me. I could not out run the guy because I have a fake hip. I was not going to engage him physically because he was bigger and had a loaded gun pointing at my side.
We walked in the casino and there were ATMs right there. I walked him across the casino floor all the way to the other side hoping they'd get him on camera from multiple angles.
While at the cashier's window I said pull $2500 out knowing it would decline. I continued to do that all the way down to $500. I was there for several minutes doing this hoping it would alert someone that something was up. When given the $500 from the cashier I said, "looks like you're not going to the high rollers table, playa." Still no one noticed anything. The casino was empty. I saw three employees.
He wanted more money and there are ATMs next to the cashier's window and I walked him all the way across the casino floor again to the ATMs on the other side of the hotel. I got out more money. All the while, the cab driver is waiting outside and calling my cell phone because that's the number I called him from. Butler had to give me my phone back in the casino because the cab driver called. That's how I obtained my phone back that he stole in the hotel room.
He got nervous and wanted to leave. Still, mind you, standing next to me with a gun pointed at my side. He said, "We're going back to the hotel and figure out how to get more money on the credit cards."

I'm still complying with him at this point. We get to the front door of the casino and it dawned on me that if I get back in the cab with this guy I'm going to get killed. This was my opportunity and if he did shoot me at least they'd get him on film. I told him I'm not getting in the cab. He grabbed my arm and said yes you are. This was the first time I looked him in the face (he had a cloth covering his face in the hotel room but removed it when the cab came).

I told him, "I'm walking away and you do whatever you have to do." I walked away only looking back to see him get in the cab. I immediately got the attention of the valet and notified him I was just robbed and the guy is leaving in that cab. I provided the cab drivers cell phone number.

All of it was caught on film by the casino. I was not there before or after doing any gambling. I only showed up with a guy in blue jean shorts and a black hoodie on walked to the cashier's window, to the ATMs across the casino and then out the front doors.

The bank and credit card companies investiged it and I got all my money back except for the initial $300 he stole from me in cash. Otherwise I would have been arrested for fraud.
