Bank Robbers Dressed as Nuns

Two people dressed a nuns robbed the West Englewood branch of TCF bank in Palos Heights, Illinois, Sunday afternoon. It was not the first robbery the branch has seen, according to detective Gerald Wodka.
This time two offenders entered the bank just minutes before closing time at 1:58 p.m., both with weapons, Wodka said.

They jumped over the counter and took control of two employees — a bank teller and the branch manager — ordered them to the vault where their Nike duffel bag was filled with currency, he said.

No shots were fired, and no one was injured. No customers were in the bank at the time. Police are not disclosing how much money was taken.

The robbers were dressed in black nun costumes as depicted in Ben Affleck’s movie, “The Town,” Wodka said.

Police are on the lookout for the suspects and their car, described at the Sun-Times. Link -via Arbroath

People don't rob banks except to make themselves known. "Fear or revere me, but please think I'm special."

So the age old story goes. Jack the Ripper killed prostitutes (a.k.a. "dregs of society") and likely maintained that though the law prohibited him, he would be secretely revered like Batman or some other romanticized vigillante.

A few years back there was a man in the UK also killing prostitutes and the leity tossed around all manner of ideas about his motives, but criminologists the world over maintained that he was afflicted by the same intrinsic motives Jack the Ripper was. He wasn't "mad at the world" he was "making a name for himself". When the self fails to express itself in a manner that "fits in" in a traditional way, it may seek ulterior ways of elevating itself to worshipful status, and for many in the darkness of their own ignorance, the solutions are delusional. We cannot openly help these people come up with better solutions because by and large we are the ones who made them feel cast out to begin with, and secondly because we'd rather incarcerate them to protect ourselves against any possible sign of the potential of the prospect or any probability that we might be hurt. So we don't help them and are not mature enough to even try. Because we ourselves only haphazhardly made it to where we are at and cannot claim to understand it. There is a massive timber in our eye, and this is like a 10,000 year old seqouia. ; )
