  1. Security cameras should be duplicated to better show their faces. There are cameras made so tiny that no one even knows they are there ……. and why are people allowed to walk into a bank wearing hoodies?

  2. Stockton ilk for sure. One covers his face and the other didn’t..smh. And smart bank robbers know you don’t need a gun to rob nowadays, just a politely written but firm note asking for money. The gun just enhances their charges.

      • This time I see two black bank robbers. Before you want to put down a whole race why don’t you recognized that bank robberies are not a crime that is typically perpetrated, Black folks. FBI Crime stats show that caucasian are typically your bank robber. You should care more about people stealing be it, Black or White. it seems that you only have tunnel vision and only allow yourself to see blacks as criminals. Shame on you I’m in no way making excuses for the horrible thing these two did but can we please quit spitting out the suggestion that bank robbers are typically African American. That’s really small minded and racist and has no place in a modern post-Jim Crow society. being a racist is not kool.

        • So what if it’s “small-minded” and “racist!” It’s reality so stop making excuses for blacks who, percentage-wise, commit more crimes than any other race.

    • Look at the photos of a number of bank robbers featured on this site and you will see what race they are.

      • To say mostly are Black is not by any means true and is offensive.and unfounded it suggests that you are buying into a racist agenda and that’s not cool by any means.

        • Black men commit a higher percentage of violent crime, and society knows this. In the words of a black friend of mine, everybody thinks he’s a criminal thanks to inner city thugs. The black community needs to take responsibility for their own community, and quit blaming everybody else.

          Blacks commit the highest percentage of crimes (population wise) followed closely by Hispanics. Then whites, and Asians commit the least.

          These are statistical facts – and if that’s offensive to you – so be it. I don’t see myself getting offended because Japanese men commit less crime.

        • Flickmakers: Start checking out the daily log of crimes committed DAILY in OAKLAND alone! Check out the names and the racial descriptions and you’ll see.

        • Hey Flickie! So, it’s offensive! So what? We know the stats and it seems reality is not your forté. I’d rather be REALISTIC than “cool.”
