What is going on with all theses bank robberies lately? How soft a target is Garden City?

I've spent some amount of time in the NYC Department of Sanitation Police Department so I believe this make me an expert on these types of situations. In my professional opinion, I would have to say that Garden City may or may not be a soft target or a hard target for that matter. But I'm %100 confident to tell you that there is a good possibility that the bank might be subject to another robbery at some point or it might not. I hope I shed some light on this matter.

Businesses and homes are getting robbed on the regular around here.

John E. Law, your "expertise" gives you no apparent ability to "shed light on this matter" because all you did was pose the only possible scenarios. Your post makes no sense. I hope you were joking.

Scary! How does this keep happening? especially in the middle of day! We need more security in this town!

Give the PD more incentives

John E. Law, I am 100% confident it is either night or day on some part of the earth. I hope my professionalism shed some light on that for you.

Mr McGowan, you feel threatened by my résumé and that's understandable. I've spend many days picking up trash in SINY. For those newbies (McGowan included) that means Staten Island New York. I have been poked with a few hypodermic needles in my day "on the job". I hope you are not suggesting that the Garden City Police Department are not experienced in their field of employment. I attend the monthly GC meetings and I know that more than half of the department has prior experience with the NYPD. They walked the "beat" in those areas that you speak of, so your point is not valid. Until you walk in my shoes picking up the "trash" as a Sanitation Police officer, you won't understand. Until then please remember to recycle. Thank you.

I believe that this bank robber will be apprehended in the near future. Only a matter of time before his luck runs out. Mr McGowan one day you will be able to come out from hiding under your bed. Be not afraid.
