Why O why is it always bank policy (here in the US) to have the teller give the bank robbers the loot? How many times per day in America does some person go up to a bank teller with a note reading "I've got a gun" or "I've got a bomb," and the teller goes right ahead and forks over the dough? 99% of the time these clowns don't even have a weapon, not that this is the way the situation should be treated like in every instance. Usually the people who rob banks don't do it just once, but multiple times before they stop or are caught.
It seems like banks would rather have the criminal walk off with their money instead of confronting the perpetrator and attempting to defuse the situation. It is almost like following a hijacker's demands post 9/11. It just seems like banks would rather appease criminals than deal with them, leaving the effects to insurance or their clientele. I know many people will say that it is all in an attempt to prevent injury, but I believe more harm is being done by simply letting these people walk out with the loot without a confrontation. Are the banks the enabler, or is the policy of cooperation with a robber the best way in which to deal with a situation like this?
We don't take no stinkin' prisoners!
