"They were ordered to come out one by one with their hands up and were greeted by armed deputies who questioned them at gunpoint to ensure none was a robber. Most were handcuffed until their identification could be verified.

They later were escorted behind the bank and down an alley to a nearby beauty parlor called Shear Pleasure Salon, where they removed their coats, some settling into salon chairs to be interviewed by law enforcement."

Nobody seems to be the lest bit phased by the treatment of these ladies. It's outrageous to treat victims this way.

Understand polices need for safty. One possible way to avoid revictimizing employees is to have on file bank managers with photo so a representative can be established to identify who works there as they come out (hands up fine for safety) & use that as procedure. After all they can use that for all businesses...don't they have a contact for owners incase of a fire or night store robbery ect. for businesses anyway? With computers these days it would be easy to set such a file up & police are using them in some cars they can send it out need be with photo.
