Democrat Party Loses Another Voter

Alleged Bank Robber Apparently Uses Own Check on Note Demanding Money From Bank Teller
09-11-2007 2:26 PM

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (Associated Press) -- A note demanding money from a bank teller was written on a check that authorities said belonged to the suspect. Forest Kelly Bissonnette, 27, apparently scratched his name off one of his own checks, then used that check to write a note used in a bank robbery Sept. 5, according to authorities.

"We could still make it out even though he blacked it out," said Rene VonderHaar, FBI special agent.

Bissonnette remained in federal custody Tuesday after turning himself in on Friday.

Nearly $5,000 was taken during the robbery at the Bank of the West in Englewood.

Why doesn't the guy just do the easy stuff, and demand the teller deposit the cash in his account? At least he won't have to lug heavy bags when the police get him.

I'm pretty sure this guy doesn't vote.

This reminds me of another story....last year, the bank across from our office was robbed, only the thief left his ransom note. He had written it on the back of his resume. It didn't take long to catch him.

Since we are a placement firm for the legal community, the police came by our office to ask if he had come in and applied for something or sought out a lawyer before going 'to the bank'. I still laugh about it.

I bet he's a Democrat. If he was a republican his friends would blindly rally to support him saying that he was trying to stop evil doers.
