    Talking Poor excuse for a robber?

    I just had to share this one. I almost put it in the "Law Enforcement" forum, but just couldn't bring myself to do it. Here's the police news release from yesterday:

    Inept Robber Foils His Own Holdup

    Spokane Valley Police officers were scratching their heads Tuesday afternoon after responding to a bank holdup alarm and finding the suspect seated in the lobby awaiting their arrival.

    “We haven’t decided if he was just inept, or maybe imbalanced,” said Sgt. Wes Eylar.

    According to bank employees, Jason W. McKinney entered the American West Bank branch at 9019 E. Appleway about 12:25 p.m. He approached a teller and while fumbling with the front pouch pocket of his sweatshirt, demanded money.

    The teller refused to give him any cash, so McKinney made his finger into the shape of a gun barrel and then put his hand into the sweatshirt pouch and poked out the material as if he was armed.

    The teller hit the alarm button and turned away from McKinney. The suspect asked if she had just called police, and she told him that she had.

    At that point, the would-be robber sat down to await their arrival.

    McKinney, a transient with substantial criminal history, had no weapon. The suspect was still being interviewed by sheriff’s major crimes detectives at 2 p.m.

    “Our plan at this point is to book him for the attempted robbery,” Eylar said.

    Sounds like free room and board for the transient.

    +1. This used to happen a lot when I worked downtown. They'd rob someone and then make no effort to escape.

    Free room and board for a little while.

    The only thing the teller messed up on is that she should have handed him a dollar or two, that way they could have made the full robbery charge

    Sounds like 3 hots and a cot to me.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Must have been a cold spell coming and he didn't want to sleep outside. Save the taxpayers some money and go to a recycler and get him a cardboard box like chest type deep freezes come in, and he'll be warm as toast!
