what is going on with the rise in WNY bank robberies? I believe the robbers share the common denominator of "I won't get caught" but the police prove them wrong again and again. If you are able to get away, the long arm of the law keeps looking for you and sooner or later they will catch you and you will go to jail. Is that really worth a couple of hundred bucks?

now if the above paragraph stops one bank robbery ...............

Another great job by law enforcement! And kudos to the bank employees and whoever provided ID's of the robbers! Hope they're all o.k. and not too traumatized!
