Thankfully, no one so far has been killed or injured. What is interesting is that the local news reports these robberies but doesn't make much of a deal over them. Citizens are given no advisories, no editorials....it just happens, is over, and forgotten.

Is this happening much elsewhere? Does it make you think twice about going into a bank to do business?

I guess at least a few people want their TARP money back.

Wow! People are either really desperate or greedy! We've had one bank robbery in our small town in about 20 years or so. That was several years ago and, honestly, I don't remember when the last one was before that. That's how long it's been. They caught the guy fairly fast though.
