    Police took two men into custody Friday at a Mira Mesa bank after employees reportedly spotted one of them wearing a belt buckle that looked like a gun.

    It happened at a Wells Fargo branch located on Camino Ruiz and Mira Mesa Boulevard, according to a News 8 report.

    News 8 cameras caught the action as police took the two men into custody at gunpoint. One of the men apparently was wearing a belt buckle shaped like a gun.

    So this is what the world is coming to.

    I noticed the reporter had to dis-credit the innocent guy so all the viewers would not like him. The the anchor guys say. "I don't think anybody would disagree with how the police handled it"

    Give me a break. It is a freaking belt buckle. That never would of happened 10 years ago. People are just programmed chickens now.

    What a crock! Why were the police guns trained on these young men when they were already surrounded by cops with weapons.. drawn and trained on the unarmed individuals, they had dogs there, rifles, AND both "suspects" were complying with their hands in the air.

    I would have been pretty angry myself. Point your gun down in the ready position until a threat is evident. Maybe my view isn't the right one... but its mine.

    I learned of these roughly ten years ago and yes it's a belt buckle that by design retains a real functioning defensive (or offensive) firearm...



    More info on this very real product can be found via North American Arms at; http://www.naaminis.com/custcry.html

    Considering there has been as of late a bank robbery to occur every week over the past 6 months or so I personally don't think it's unreasonable considering the context to take note of a customer wearing a gun looking device at or on his belt buckle nor the for the police to react and respond as they did.
    Just this morning on CNN there was a story of a bank robbery where some fool walked in with real tree sticks & leaves duct taped to his face as a disguise to rob a bank which is exactly what he did with success.

    New Hampshire man in tree outfit? I'm from the same town as he and the bank. How embarrassing to be so poor he couldn't even afford a ski mask; and now the New Hampshire tree huggers are probably mad at him for so called improper use of foliage...

    Cops as lumber jacks?

    What will the cops say when they draw down on this guy? "Drop the weapon or we'll chop you down".

    Exclamation Crime Might Pay as Bank Robberies Increase

    As reported via ABCNews.com:

    Crime Might Pay as Bank Robberies Increase
    80 Percent of Cash Taken in Bank Robberies Is Never Recovered.


    The number of bank robberies rose about 5 percent in 2006 -- 7,272 incidents in all. (ABC News)

    By PIERRE THOMAS and THERESA COOK
    July 10, 2007

    Bank robbers hold up at least 23 banks somewhere in the United States every day. The number of bank robberies rose about 5 percent in 2006 -- 7,272 incidents in all.

    From three gun-wielding young men robbing a bank in Illinois to a middle-aged man in Texas claiming to be a father who had been just laid off, bank robbery remains one of the most common and troubling crimes facing police.

    From Bonnie and Clyde to Costumes

    The robbers are overwhelmingly men, often showing up in costumes, wearing masks or wigs, or even dressing in drag. Suspects in a Jackson, Miss., bank robbery posed as FBI agents to get inside the vault.

    Watch more on this report from Pierre Thomas tonight on "World News with Charles Gibson."

    But women, who make up 5 percent of bank robbery suspects, are getting more brazen -- far different from the days of Bonnie and Clyde, when they served mostly as lookouts.

    According to the FBI, the current trend shows that women are much more likely to be robbing the banks themselves.

    'Cell Phone' and 'Ponytail' Bandits

    Recent cases illustrate that trend, such as the "cell phone bandit" who is serving time in a federal prison for robbing four Wachovia bank branches in the Washington, D.C., area while talking nonchalantly on her mobile phone the entire time.

    There's also the "ponytail" robber, who is suspected of robbing banks in Texas, California and Washington, dressed in a zip-up sweatshirt and baseball cap, with a blond ponytail sprouting out the back.

    Motive for the Crime

    But whether male or female, across the board, suspects are often robbing out of desperation.

    "Out of the people we arrest, about 50 percent have a narcotics use habit," said Kenneth Kaiser, assistant director of the FBI's Criminal Investigative Division. "And the other ones may have an alcohol addiction, they may have a gambling addiction, or they may have other financial problems they're trying to resolve," Kaiser continued.

    About half of bank thieves use weapons to commit their crimes, but Kaiser said the short-term financial gain is simply not worth the consequences --...
