The old man probably can no longet live on social security alone (who can), so I guess he figued, "Oh well, what the heck..." He will probably keep going until he gets caught... What does he have to lose? If he gets away with it, he will be be able to live comfortable... If he gets caught, then he will live for FREE in a Federal Prison Camp with FREE EVERYTHING... Like I said, what does he have to lose? The old guy was probably afraid of taking down a scrore his entire life in fear of going to prison, but if he's in his 80's or 90's and had the guts to walk into a bank and rob it, maaaaaaaaaaan, now THAT'S some funny sh** !!!

The future is here... This is the profile of today's criminal... No more stereotypes, as crime has reached Equal Opportunity... I saw this stuff coming years ago when the real estate market took a dive like a LEAD balloon... Before we know it, soccer moms and little grannies with walkers might start robbing banks... You can think I'm wrong all you want, but if an old man with a cane just robbed a bank, I hate to see what else will happen... I pray that my wife, children and I are not there if and when it happens again... They should make people Buzz-In and Buzz-Out of banks, just as they do at Jewelry stores.

That's horrible that he was allowed to walk out in public with an assault cane. These old people openly carrying these dangerous weapons should be banned from entering banks and other public places. The next thing you know there will be hijacking of hoverrounds by gangs of greying thugs wearing their pants up under their armpits listening to Guy Lombardo and lawrence Welk! The government needs to do something about this menace.
