Why should you try to catch him? Everyone makes mistakes. Why don't we start putting the world polititians in jail for all the wars and money the they legally misappropriate and steal?

If this guy si caught and punished, what is right payment for Bush, Cheney and Blair?

What a sweet teller!

As for 'giovi' from Italy. Before you start slamming our President and the British PM, remember that the daily media is very very liberal and will never put conservative people in a good light. Don't believe everything you read, hear, or see on TV.

How do you make the connection between Bush and a wanna be robber in Wisconsin? That's quite a stretch. Maybe we shouldn't send the latest convicted(Family Secrets Trial) bunch of murdering outfit members to jail because we don't prosecute Bush?

It's always Bush's fault! Why do you think there was no money in the bank?

your statement would make sense. Bush is responsible for new deaths everyday of children and innocent bystanders.

the family secrets are geriatric men who did their deeds decades ago.

So I would sayyes. Bush should be imprisoned before they spend a day behind bars.

No one is not letting Giovvi have her say. I'm just curious about the logic (and yours I might add) that connects two things that are not remotely connected. Just my own curiousity here, that's all.

The only person at risk here was the perp. Had he taken the suckers, he'd have probably gotten cavities, but just think of the lawsuit possibilities!

They should put retractable spike-strips in the drive up lanes so they can puncture the tires of people that try to rob drive-ups.
