I think "idiotic" would have been the correct substitute for "intelligent". :)

If one were to hit their panic or alarm button while the thief was still on the premises and there are customers and employees in the bank, a hostage situation could occur. I would much rather read about a robbery than a mass murder scene. It is the safest practice in any situation, professional or personal, to keep yourself safe and those around you. Life cannot be replaced. Hand over the money/purse/wallet and be as observant as possible to assist police. *my opinion*

"Why would you not wear a seat belt when it could save your life?" I don't know; I always wear mine. But why is that the state's decision? Why isn't it up to the individual? You could have a law requiring all drivers to wear polarized sunglasses when it is sunny. Would you justify that on the basis that a lot of people who would get pulled over for not wearing polarized sunglasses might "wind up" getting arrested for something else? Do we really want to make minor things illegal just so the state has a pretext for pulling people over and maybe catching them at something else?

OK Kathy, let's make it as easy as possible to rob our banks safely. Heck, maybe we could install special robbery express lines to keep the bad guys completely segregated from the other customers....LOL.

Leo, Maybe you should look up "intelligent". Live through something like Katrina and then you can comment. You're the MORON!
