He who gives Love, receives love; Knock and the door shall be open; not in the USA. Didn't the Banks just rob us? No one was hurt is the main thing.

Hey Nick! I could use an extra $5000. Maybe I should go rob a bank! After all, no one got hurt right? I guess that ignores the fact that banks are insured by the FDIC with taxpayer dollars. But who's worried about those details? Hell, as long as it's free money and nobody's getting hurt maybe I should go for an even $10,000.

Come on John P who's advocating for Bank Robbers. The point is there is so much injustice, bank or any robbery should be unnecessary is a "just society", did not the Wall Street Crowd rob the country and get off free and with bonuses to boot. Sarcasm my friend that's' all it was. Suggest you read; If You Want to Rob a Bank Own One; you can look up the author.
