How can this happen in the liberal, anti-gun utopia that is Chicago? Could it have anything to do with the fact that criminals NEVER obey laws?
CHICAGO (CBS) – Bank robbers had a busy year in 2012. The FBI said robbers have hit 218 banks in the Chicago area as of Dec. 31, compared to 115 in 2011.
“Close to double what we had in the prior year,” said FBI Special Agent Joan Hyde.
You mean those little gun-free stickers on bank doors don’t stop criminals from robbing? Whodathunkit?
WBBM Newsradio’s Brandis Friedman reports, while people often look for a way to explain a spike in bank robberies, Hyde said it’s not often tied to a greater issue, like the economy.
Translation: It’s due to Obamanomics.
“That just doesn’t play out. Typically the bank robbers are motivated by their need for money for a drug habit, or gambling debts,” she said.
[…]This year’s bank robbery total is the most since 2006, when there were 284 such heists in the Chicago area.
