TAKOMA PARK, Md. - Dramatic video shows an alleged bank robber being taken down by police after slipping and falling on ice. WARNING – GRAPHIC VIDEO

The incident happened at the Capital One Bank in Takoma Park, Md. around 9:00 a.m. on Friday.

Police had the bank surrounded when the alleged robber came out of the front door with what looked like a gun to the head of a female hostage.

As the robber made his way from the bank with the hostage he appeared to slip on ice that covered the parking lot after a Wednesday snow storm.

Police immediately moved in and fired shots at the alleged robber.

Video shows the suspect falling to the ground and police taking him away.

His condition is unknown at this time.

The hostage escaped uninjured.

His condition is unknown at this time.

Hopefully, the EMTs are exsanguinating him before he gets to the hospital by doing CPR and not applying direct pressure ;)

PC BS.

Hope it wasn't a white cop that shot him, else the "RACIST COPS" phrase will be shouted all through DC area in 5....4.....3....2.....

Oh, and his auntie or grandmother will come on TV crying about how a "good boy he was and that he just hung out with the wrong crowd" nonsense....and that the cops didn't have to shoot him.

Well, one thing is for sure, the robber must not have been a Tea Partier or a Glenn Beck listener or we would've heard about it by now.

Which leads me to something I've been thinking for quite a while now.....non-Tea-Partiers are more dangerous than Tea Partiers.

We can thank The Corrupt Professional Left Media Bass Turds for chronicling this.

well the bank robber won’t be down for breakfast so he can’t sue.

4 people injured, one a police officer...did the robber have an accomplice?

I’m going to wager a guess that the robber was NOT a white quaker farmer from Dutch-Pennsylvannia.

We weren’t making fun of the severity of what happened here. It was just when we saw the title, that was the first thing that came to mind.

Complete video here. Somebody with skills may want to save it, before the media outlet decides it's "too graphic" and may traumatize us if we see it.

Bad guy dropped like a bag of rocks. He be daid.

I love happy endings.

“Isn’t the media supposed to be about reporting the truth??”

They’re a bunch of friggin’ WIMPS. Let potential crooks see what REALLY happens to violent lawbreakers, they will see and LEARN. Who gives a f*** in the a** about how “traumatized” the little savages get?
