    He probably didnt realize its illegel to rob a bank. Poor guy, he`s misunderstood or suffering from post 911 syndrone.Leave him alone and let some liberal help him out on the tax payers dime

    This is unacceptable. Suburbs are where REAL Americans live, which means that all crime belongs in CITIES. New York City owes us big-time for this.
