Crime is at an all time high in marin...car theft, assaults, several beatings and many stabbings, 6 sets of license plates have been stolen in my neighborhood in the last 4 weeks, cars broken into, there has been 10 hit and runs in san rafael in the last several weeks. To many people out of work and to many bums running around that don't want to work. Marin is overrun with illegals but very few jobs for them these days too. Lock your doors.

Don't these places have tons of video cameras?
Or are they all fake?

What exactly does this mean?
She was comforted by a man she identified as her father and they drove away.
"confronted"? Bad choice of words or did he really "confront" her?

Headline reads "2 Bank of Marin branches robbed in 1-hour span" but it was over an hour. I know 3 minutes but I thought the news was to be fact and not what ever suits the writer.

Yah. Im pretty sure this guy has hit up a few US Banks. He is definitely Latino and wears a wig and mustache and has a small revolver. He is pretty obvious to spot. He usually carries a small bag too.

Every single golram bank should hire two armed guards with Benneli full auto shot guns. End of story.

agreed: also the banks should lock their doors during the day. only those with id and bank cards are allowed in. hired guards should stand at the door profiling anyone walking in: for example a hispanic wearing a wig.

Especially if that Benelli is wielded by Tom Knapp!:) If you are not familiar with Tom Knapp - check out www.benelliusa.com/team_benelli/tom_knapp.php... "Recognized as the greatest exhibition shooter of modern times" - for his world record #3 "Tom launched ten clay targets into the air with one hand and shot all ten with individual shots in an unbelievable 2.0 seconds."

That sucks because Bank of Marin is a solid local community bank. I also like Circle Bank as a good local establishment.

Too bad the robbers didn't target banks that fleeced American taxpayers during the bailout. Like Citibank, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo!

I really don't understand how there isn't crisp video footage (or vidcaps/photos) posted of this guy yet..

I don't think the banks, the IJ, or our Marin prosecutors take these crimes seriously which is why they're happening all over the county. Enough is enough..
