    Says the suspect "showed a pistol". For real? Sounds like suicide by cop. Otherwise just stupid. What did he think, the cops were just going to hunker down in fright, and let him go?
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Sounds like the problem was taken care of quickly at a minimal cost to taxpayers.

    89 bank robberies in Houston since January? Fifteen more since last year? What's going on in Houston? We have one occasionally in Dayton or the surrounding areas but nowhere near that rate.

    Houston is about 580 square miles, and 1.95 million population.
    Dayton Ohio........56.6 square miles and 166,000 population.

    If you have one a month you are keeping pace with us.

    Houston's crime rate has gone up significantly since taking in all those Katrina refuges. Many of which decided not to return home.

    Houston has always been a wide-open, hard-runnin' city. Luckily, it is also (at least partially) populated with level-headed, clear-thinking, self-reliant Texans! The Lilly-Livered Society has a very small following in the Lone Star State. God Bless Texas.

    The FBI is looking into the case, trying to figure out if this suspect is responsible for any other area bank robberies. Houston and Harris County have had 89 bank robberies since January. That's 16 more than last year this time.
    What surprised me isnt just that there were 89 this year, but that there were 73 last year when the economy wasnt nearly as bad.

    Offtopic, but I saw this link on the page about the robbery. Attempted murder suicide.

    Son Shoots Dad, Kills Self in River Oaks

    HOUSTON - An upscale Houston neighborhood is rocked by gunfire and screams for help. Police are investigating an attempted murder-suicide on Ella Lee Lane in prestigious River Oaks.

    "I don't know of anything happening like this in a long time out here," said Pat Rutherford.

    Around 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon, Ben and Nancy Wells saw their neighbor, who they identify as Blake Hawk, running down the sidewalk before collapsing on the concrete.

    "He was bleeding profusely from the head and saying that his son had shot him," said Ben Wells.

    Hawk, 59, is the executive vice president of Crown Castle International Corporation, a communication technology company in Houston. Police say he was shot twice in the head but was still alive when he was transported to Ben Taub hospital.

    "He was still lucid and able to give police a lot of information," said Wells.

    Police discovered the body of Hawk's 21-year-old son, who neighbors say is also named Blake Hawk, inside the living room of their home. He died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    "The young man who is deceased was very handsome, very intelligent, loved his dog that we will now take care of until the family reunites with the dog," said Nancy Wells.

    Police are still investigating what may have caused the violence to erupt. Hawk was in stable condition after undergoing surgery Sunday night.
