I have said this over and over. BANKS DO NOT BELONG IN GROCERY STORES, ATM's are fine. You are putting too many people at risk, especially the elderly and small children. This practice needs to end. I will NOT go into the Bank of America at Lindb & Clayton or any bank near a major highway access. They are high-risk targers and too dangerous. More robberies than ever under the Obama Adm, and now even more will be occurring. Banks and grocery stores better wise up, Grocery stores are opening themselves up to huge lawsuits over this. Stopped shopping at this Shnucks when the Dierbers opened up. Much safer area than near the mall and highway.

I think this is an overreaction. It happens. Doesn't matter if it is a free standing bank or in a grocery store. And it has NOTHING to do with Obama. And I am not an Obama supporter.

P. Jones, I think we are seeing an increase in robberies due to the current economy. So if you believe Obama has helped get us to this state of affairs maybe just a bit can be put on his shoulders. I happen to believe there is a major problem with crime and went and got my conceal and carry. Further, now that the election is over....I need more weapons for protection.

NO, not Obama personally, but definately the economy. Don't even get me started on how he has done nothing for unemployment in the Black community, yet once again they voted Dependocrat 99.9%. Love the hope and change. I guess they really don't want change which is why Captain Revenge never brought up change in this election.
