    Condolences to the brave security guards family. As for the robber . expose his name photo and details of his family as well. Repeat this when the next few full faced helmut rougues are caught. Itll end. Putting them to prison is only a burden on us. But public shame brought upon the whole family is a mind thing. Just expose it please . media over to you.

    Shame the security personnel had to lose his life because of this.

    First time a security officer had secured the Bank from robbery. Earlier even armed security just looked the other way. A real hero - should be well compensated. More often security runs away.
