It is a good thing he didn’t have a gun. Somebody could have gotten hurt.

However he did seem to have an assault knife! Payers to the victims and their families and a heres hoping for a short life for the SOB.

I was just thinking that in this area there are two types of crime in which you can’t just assume the perp is Black.

Bank robbery and meth labs. Now if it had been a convenience store robbery or a gang related murder the odds are very strong that the usual suspects are involved.

Is that a knife with a bayonet lug?

It’s Hellinois - no death penalty. He’ll live a long life on the taxpayers’ dime.

I can always hope for an accident, a painful, catastrophic accident which impacts only one specific individual.

Federal crime, but he will still live a long time in Marion.

Yeah, no kidding.

Prayers for the victim’s families.

Too bad the victims or someone else wasn’t CCW and took this guy out.

Cairo IL is a real small dump of a town. Who would have thought a feral degenerate would try to rob the bank there.

Looks like he did have a gun — but the fatal wounds were by the knife.

BTW that city name is pronounced Karo.. not Cairo as you would imagine. But then it is Illinois, pronounced *&^%*&^%!

In point of fact, the perp did have a gun. He just preferred to use the blade. This is a local story and there are lots of odd details. He accosted the women as they were leaving the closed bank and forced them back inside. Since the bank’s money was safe in the vault, he stole the women’s purses and made his getaway in one of the women’s car. Two dead and one in the hospital for what amounts to a purse snatching.

What I want to know, is why a bank in Cairo, Illinois (a failed town if ever there was one) lets three women close up with no armed protection.

No company brains?
Irresponsible management?
Idiotic management?
All three and more?

I’d say his brother.

No doubt, “the rev’s” Al and Jesse will be marchin’ soon demanding justice for the victims. We need pictures of them, too.

Couldn't agree more. Holder may not even prosecute due to his complexion.

There is also a Cairo, Georgia also pronounced “Karo”.

Their high school athletic teams are “The Syrupmakers”. Try to work that in to a cheer.

The Illinois Cairo is pronounced like it rhymes with ‘arrow’ not like the syrup. The injured woman has left the hospital, but has not been named. The perp left prison a month ago. He’s done time for passing bad checks and is a sex offender as well—his victim was 11. Perhaps he’ll never get out again after this.

Just saving the money that a guard would have cost.

Oh, of course. And that falls under my other statements.

Since it’s a bank.

Nowadays I can’t believe this wouldn’t lead to a suit from the victims; companies can;t leave spilled liquids on the floor because people slip & fall, and banks need security because they get robbed.
