Chicago Homicides aren't the only crime breaking record numbers... We just passed the number of bank robberies for all of 2011 in Aug of 2012

Two area banks were robbed this afternoon, pushing the number of heists this year to 116 -- one more than last year’s entire tally, authorities said.

Mostly recently in the city’s Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side, a white man in his 20s with blond hair implied he had a weapon and robbed at bank at 4050 S. Archer Ave. at 4:27 p.m., said police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety. The robber was sporting a red shirt and carrying red backpack when he fled with cash, said Baety.

Metropolitan Bank is located at the Archer Avenue address.

The Archer Avenue heist put this year’s number at 116 for the year, according to the FBI.

“We are clearly surpassing last year’s relatively low record,’’ said FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde.

Hyde said in 2011, there were a total of 115. But the record still stands at 284, set back in 2006, said Hyde.

At 1:30 p.m. a man who appeared to be about 30-years old, standing between 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7, robbed a Charter One Bank branch in southwest suburban Bridgeview at 8739 S. Harlem Ave., according to Hyde.

Agents remain on the scene of the Archer Avenue robbery and no one was hurt in the Bridgeview robbery, Hyde said.

Great Job, CPD Leadership. Time for another Strategy Session. Bring the Kool Aid in case someone who has a clue shows up.

Time's are hard for white men. The system is collapsing, there are very few jobs, the Mexicans
are stealing our country, and niggers are still collecting something for nothing.

This country is one incident away from collapse. Almost 300,000,000 angry motherfuckers who've lost 1/2 their wealth since the banksters fucked 'em in 2008.

Take a look around, can't you see it in their eyes and feel it in the air?

Stock up, bad shit is coming regardless of who wins in November.

We are in a really terrible economy right now as we all know. Bank robbery is just a sign of how bad it is. Worse part is it will get much worse next year no matter who gets into the WH.

I heard it took more than 2 1/2 hrs for an ET to respond to the bank. This is why CPD is hated. Horrible service. I dont blame cpd I blame the Mayor.

FBI spokesperson Joan Hyde voted for Obama, then asked him how something could be a record but still be relatively low----low to what?

Banks are where the money is. Some dumbass bluegum spade would rob an ATM. A good bank robbery takes intelligence and planning...well beyond the capabilities of anyone non-white...
