Bank Robbery

Bank robbers and bank robberies are often glorified in the television and in movies. Robberies are made to seem very easy: just go into the bank and get as much money as possible before being attacked or before the police come. Moreover, children play games like cops and robbers, and they often want to be the robbers. It is not surprising that some people choose to rob banks and think that they can get away with it.

Bank robbery, however, is not as easy as it seems. There are security cameras everywhere in banks. Someone being held up in a bank robbery may resist the robber’s attempts at theft. A bank teller will press the emergency button, signaling the police to come. The police will arrive extremely quickly, likely allowing the bank robber to collect very little money.

As a result of these many factors, bank robberies rarely succeed. Robbers usually get caught and end up going to jail. When bank robberies do succeed, thieves usually do not get as much money as they hoped to get. Banks have elaborate security systems developed over decades of experience. Technology is also on the side of the banks, as they have lots of money that they can and do put into bank security, whereas bank robbers usually work alone and do not have much of a technological advantage.
