To use same angle MSNBC took when "reporting" the attack on the cab driver in nyc)....see what talk radio and the likes of right wingers do to America and the hate for banks? These young misguided youth were so hellbent on attacking banks, thanks in large part to talk radio discussing how banks were given bailouts and CEOs making so much money,they actually attacked a bank. Shame on talk radio! It should be banned (except for NPR and the like of course).
PS - it is not politcally correct to refer to these young men as "white". The correct term is "Euro-Americans". The term "cracker" could also be used but only by other crackers.

Were they carrying an Army or Navy revolver in their hands?

The one in the camo cap, probably just needed money to buy ammo for the opening of dove season. LOL
