City Official Opposing Armed Security At Repeatedly-Robbed Bank

Madison, WI – A member of the city’s common council has questioned the wisdom of having an armed guard at a Chase Bank that has been robbed repeatedly.

Police said a masked man entered the bank at about 4:50 p.m. and postured as if he had a weapon, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

Madison Police Chief Mike Koval said the man handed an employee a bag and demanded cash.

The armed security guard saw the robber acting as if he had a gun and fatally shot him, Chief Koval told the Wisconsin State Journal.

None of the other employees or customers in the bank were injured in the attempted robbery.

Alder Amanda Hall, who represents the district where the beleaguered bank was located, expressed her sympathies for the bank robber in the wake of the incident.

“What this looks like to me is we have a young man, who didn’t have the community support and the community opportunity to make a different choice with what he was going to do with his Thursday,” Hall told the Wisconsin State Journal. “And now he’s dead.”

Hall sent out a long letter to residents of her district calling for additional “expensive” security measures to be taken by Chase Bank rather than permitting the financial institution to continue to have an armed guard, WMTV reported.

In the letter, Hall questioned whether having armed security made the neighborhood safer, and posited that instead, it created an “arms race” with criminals.

“I am concerned that if there is one armed guard at the branch, that instead of one person trying to rob the bank without an actual weapon, as we saw frequently before now, that we might see a group of assailants, armed with powerful guns, attempt a robbery,” she wrote.

Just aping the behavior of the Philadelphia City Council when they voted to ban ghetto glass from ghetto liquor stores in West Philly.

No sh*t, leftard. Anyone else want to challenge the notion that liberalism is a mental disease?

After reading this I had to look back to the top to see if our good FRiend John Semmens’ pen might have been involved.

Pathetic!

Writing satire is getting difficult now because it’s almost impossible to pen something more absurd than what libs say in all seriousness each and every day.

WTF is an alder? I am assuming that the PC police have eliminated the gender reference here. Or maybe she isn’t really female so calling her and alderWOMAN would create a problem. I think what we’re looking for here is the “appropriate prefix,” which in this case would be alderTURD!.

Better to let one person with a stick with a nail in it e able to rob the bank.

I think the term fits in her case, since she doesn't have the brains of a plant.

Bank robberies or even attempts at bank robberies, are Federal crimes. Criminal actions have consequences in the real world.

That the City of Madison has some dispute with the enforcement of Federal law, to the degree the attempt to rob the bank was thwarted, speaks much of the pervasive erosion of the rule of law in that locality.

What we have here is a failure to communicate.
