Why would they enhance a photo, the photo Is supposed to be the real thing. How do we know that this photo came from Chase Bank camera, and why were the people standing on line faces blacked out. especially the back of the head of guy on left. Every time we see a bank robber he’s at the teller window, this one Is walking away calmly. There Is something fishes here. If you notice the camera Is almost eye level.

At least this Chase bank has a better camera than the one in Sunnyside, when that poor elderly man was robbed a month or so ago.

That’s what I came here to post, this fat pig is more than 200 lbs and with this clear shot if cops fail to find this guy, everyone might as well go out and rob banks. I stopped wishing they catch these lowlifes because it doesn’t seem to make much difference, it is not really preventing crime, in last year or so I ‘d like to see the statistics, I bet the number of bank robberies (or forced withdrawals) increase.

I bet google images might even be able to find him.
