Banks are easy targets. They tell the tellers to just give the money no questions asked. I mean a guy in a wheelchair robbed a bank in Astoria a few months ago.

Yes so many bank robberies all the time, yet no physical or verbal response from NYPD nor banking officials on what they will do to counter this. Expect more and more robberies, no end in sight.

and yet no one will do anything to add more security. This is the story of so many banks. I almost feel they use lax security on purpose to claim more money stolen from insurance….

I love how we always blame the homeless shelters when something goes wrong, thanks JVB.

No sane person can honestly argue that the presence of a homeless shelter in a residential community presents no irreparable harm.
