Bank Robber Outgunned
Maybe the bank robber couldn’t see very well through the holes in his mask as he walked into Peoples Bank & Trust of Kansas Tuesday afternoon. Right on the door is a sign that says, “Management recognizes the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as an unalienable right of all citizens.” So when the robber walked out of the bank a short time later with a red bank bag full of cash bank president David W. Thompson followed him out to the parking lot. Thompson then pulled his Colt .380 handgun and said, “Sir, get out of the truck,” and added, “You’re not going anywhere.” When the man put his hand in his jacket pocket, Thompson scolded him again. “You don’t want to go there, this will end badly.” Thompson and another bank official who also carries his own weapon pulled the man from the truck and held him at gunpoint until police arrived.
